Hola, my name is Alfredo Aquilar and I would like to invite you to our wonderful restaurant Las Cazuelas. Originally born in Puebla Mexico, I came to this great country when I was 4 years old. I apprenticed as a kitchen manager at another Mexican restaurant in the Old City section of Philadelphia where I learned my trade from the head chef who became my mentor. Since opening Las Cazuelas in November 1999, we have received great reviews and have been featured in many newspapers and magazines not only in Philadelphia but also around the country. Out of all my achievements, I am most proud of the fact that I have contributed to the community where I grew up. Please visit me and make sure to say hello so that I can thank you personally.

    The ambiance was good. But the food was not it. There was a group of 8 of us for a bday and we all was disappointed with the food. Absolutely no seasoning and the chicken was under cooked for 2 of the girls that was dining with me. The shrimp tacos looked and tasted like they just defrost some shrimp from a bag and slapped it on a tortilla. The steak tacos looked like fake food. Everything was just very bland and disappointing. Not authentic Mexican food! I think the only thing good about this place was that our waiter was very nice and understanding.

    Sat and served quickly! Chips and salsa were yummy, we got fajitas that came out delicious just missing a little bit of onions. It was a hole in the wall but everything was delicious and a great amount for a very fair price. The rice was so good. We bought our own tequila and they served us a pitcher of margarita that was good. The ambience wasn’t amazing for a fancy date but it was homey feeling. You could see the kitchen from the first floor seating which made it more intimate.

    We arrived a little early knowing it was Cinco de Mayo and there could be a delay. Seated straight away and felt like we had the center stage table. It was our 21st wedding anniversary - so a special night out. The flavor combinations - muy bueno y delicioso! We had a view into the kitchen and Chef Alfredo was a joy to watch - such CALM on Cinco de Mayo. We are so very lucky to have this gem of authenticity in our neighborhood and mere blocks from our home. Portions: PERFECT Price for said portions: PERFECT Variety of food: AMAZING Gracias por todo!

    Here for Sunday brunch. This place has been at this location since around the early 1990s. Very basic inside. Not well decorated. Probably could use a few improvements. As you walk in there are only a few tables. Makes you believe the restaurant is very small. There’s another dining room for about 25 people, and an additional dining room upstairs. There’s a few tables outside under a canopy. Service was good. Our server was very nice. Spent a lot of time taking care of take out orders coming in. The food was good. Chips and salsa are served (the nacho chips were cold and not that fresh). I ordered the Huevos rancheros. It was very good. Small portion, served on a hard tortilla (not your typical Huevos rancheros). This place is byob. They have mixers available to make your favourite drinks, if you like. Overall, I did enjoy my time here. I would like to check it out for dinner to give a more balanced review.

    I went for a birthday. We had reservations but waited an hour and a half to be seated and another 40 mins to even get WATER! They were so busy and clearly understaffed to no fault of the man waiting on us. Might have just been the night, but we were very hungry. Also felt dirty. Will not be going back

    Very cozy friendly neighborhood restaurant with great tasting traditional Mexican dishes. The freshly made guacamole was delicious as were the homemade chips. The chicken with rice dish was flavorful. The chile relleno was the best I;ve ever had and I've ordered it everywhere!

    Place was empty when we arrived.. Menu has changed AND the prices have skyrocketed!!! We were told that the menu and prices on Open Table site were not available. “Only for groups and catering “ Nothing to that effect posted anywhere!! Food was good… we will probably go back with fatter wallets!!!

    My wife and I ate outside. The table are separated appropriately; however, your seating is on the street, surrounded by a protective barrier. No ambiance, just the sound of cars passing by. The food was outstanding and worth the nominal price. The service was excellent; however, be advised that a 20% service charge is automatically charged to your bill. I believe if a Service Charge is added, it should be expressed in a more transparent fashion.

    This is my second time coming here. The first time was fine, but I order a platter that cost $26 to go. The food I received wasn't worth it. It was more so a plate for a child than doe a human. I got the steak, but very little rice & no refried beans. When I called to say that my order didn't have beans and very little rice (less than a quarter cup), they said that's how the food came and if I wanted what I ordered I had to pay an extra $7.50 on top of the $28 I spent (including tax). I wouldn't go back. Even though I showed them the food and called, they didn't try to mend the situation. So now I'm out $28 when o could've ordered UberEats from a different place for the same price with better/more food. For reference I only ate a piece of the steak. Everything else was untouched (the exact size of rice the food came with). For the amount of food I got, this should've been $15-$17, but not $26. This whole experience was just awful and a waste. They need to be responsible and fix the issues that their customers being to their attention.

    Found plastic or glass in my tacos. The quesadilla was bland, literally just cheese and chicken nothing else in it no sides. Not with the money. They didn’t apologize for having glass in my food either. Never again

    I wouldn’t recommend this place. The food was just ok and the portions are very small for their price. Our service was not great either. There are many other places around with good food, good service and good value for you money.
