Xolo Tacos is a hidden gem! Located less than a block from Lancaster Pike in the heart of Bryn Mawr, I happily discovered its authentic Mexican cuisine, a well stocked bar, and first-class service by the beautiful Julie. Our four-some enjoyed the shrimp tacos and a variety of enchiladas on a quiet Sunday afternoon. While we also liked their guacamole, it did have a "bite" to it that some might not enjoy as much. Overall, I highly recommend this very well decorated Mexican restaurant!

We went at the recommendation of a friend who couldn't say enough about how great the food is at XOLO. Unfortunately, my husband and I did not share this opinion. We both ordered fajitas. My husband ordered the skirt steak and I ordered the shrimp. His steak was very tough, hard to chew and dry. My shrimp was blackened and very dry. I have never had dried out shrimp in my life. Part of my rice was very hard. The prices are very high so I expected the food to be spectacular. I ordered the churros chocolate dessert which took entirely too long to receive. I almost canceled the order. That was OK. I did not care for the Mexican hot chocolate at all and it was lukewarm. Our bill was over $70 and I have had better Mexican food from Chi Chi's or making my own. It was disappointing and we have no desire to return.

Food and service were good. Caesar salad not the best I’ve had. Noise level was high but there were some large groups. Happy there were bathrooms on the second floor.

This is such a pretty restaurant, with lovely Mexican decor, fireplace, tiles and really convenient location. I can't imagine why it is not full from dawn to dark. We had the shrimp tacos and delicious limeade. Tell your friends to meet you there!

The four of us were seated at a table more suitable for two people in a noisy corner. The food was average. We had indicated we were celebrating a birthday, but no mention of it was made. The tres leches cake was very good. Unfortunately it was buried in whip cream and chocolate. We had been there a few times before and had a very nice experience. This time not so much.

It was my birthday and I had a group of 10 people. The staff was super friendly and accommodated the kids as well as older family members. The waitress was very sweet and even brought out a birthday slice of cake With a candle. We had queso and guacamole, and I had the shrimp taco which were perfectly spicy. The manager wished me a happy birthday as we left. I appreciated the friendly service and great food. Thank you.

Food was authentic and yummy. Good price. Service was friendly but a bit disorganized especially in getting us seated. Waited close to a half hour after our reservation. A dance class was starting up right next to us that was loud but fun to watch -- I could see others getting annoyed though if they minded the interruption. My friend and I thought it was fun but it was loud and others might find disruptive.

Had the mushroom tacos (which I have enjoyed before) and this time they came with a small side of guacamole, which made it a perfect dish! My husband like chile relleno and says Xolo's is one of his favorite for that. We will be back.

Outstanding! The food was amazing... I highly recommend Xolo Tacos, the mango habanero margaritas were the best I've ever had and the carnitas tacos, the skirt steak fajitas, camaron tacos and the guacamole were soooo good, everything was perfect. The service was excellent, very friendly staff... I'm definitely coming back for more...

Xolo Tacos has to be by far the best Mexican restaurant in the area. I lived in Mexico City for many years and can say the food is authentic and absolutely delicious! Staff is polite and accommodating and Carlos the owner is an amazing host. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for an outstanding Mexican experience.

We were seated right away and loved the soft colors, the fireplace and huge chandelier in this restaurant. The guacamole was excellent as were the chicken tacos and chicken fajitas. We didn't sit at the bar but it looked like a fun place to wait for a table. The service was also excellent!

We used to eat at Xolo frequently but stopped because of poor service. We decided to try again after six months. Bad idea. They forgot sides, would have forgotten my soup if my husband didn’t remind them. They messed up our three kids orders and had to remake. No one came to our table to apologize or tell us how much longer. Instead they avoided us completely. Unfortunately, will not be back. Felt they could have handled things better.

My friend recommended this place and had her birthday party in the upstairs room. Since then, I've been back several times. Their food is delicious; I've eaten all across the menu -- shrimp, tacos, munchies, desserts -- it's all fresh and good. Flan for dessert?! EXCELLENT! I drink wine, and the wines I've had there are good as well.
