There are excellent taco restaurants in Philly, this is not one of them. Below average food and service.

Tacos were good. Drinks were good. Tables are a bit close to each other in outdoor dining and at times I felt rushed to leave by the servers.

Service was really horrible and we had major issues with the food. I noted to the waitress I had celiac disease and needed corn tortillas. When the food runner brought out our food I asked her to confirm they were corn and she said no, they were flour and then walked away from the table before I could even ask for corn. I also asked for a salsa 2 times before it actually came to the table.

The rice was super overcooked, so badly that my husband needed to send back his burrito. The waitress admitted that the entire restaurant had bad rice that day.. but they weren't making any new rice. He then ordered tacos instead but when they came out they were not what he ordered.

The service was super slow, food was not good and staff was not super friendly or nice about the issues.

We sat outside under the tent in the parking lot. The restaurant seems to have done a nice job accommodating the Covid protocols.
The ceviche was fresh and excellent. The tacos and fajitas were also very good, as was the flan dessert.
I was disappointed that the churros and “chocolate“ did not involve real chocolate, but rather what seemed like a powdered Swiss Miss cocoa.

Sorry, wanted to love it, but was disappointed. Food was meh. Mole was less than something special. Guacamole was bland and boring, like grocery store bought. Service was good and decor/vibe had promise.

Overall, food was good, but I think they should add more items to the menu, as well as to include a kids menu (as we know, some kids can be picky eaters).
Also, I was a little disappointed on the torta I got (for take out), it wasn't what I'm used to of a Mexican torta (no queso fresco).
Their margaritas are good (I don't drink alcohol, so I got a virgen margarita).
I would go back, definitely.

We had such a good time. The staff is so terrific and friendly. The drinks are great as is the food. You will find tacos that will please every taste from the meat eater to vegetarian. Everyone wears masks and the restaurant is spotless.
We will definitely be adding XOLO Tacos to our dining rotation 😃

Having recently moved to the area we had been on the hunt for our new favorite Mexican place. We’ve found it!!! The food is wonderful, the staff friendly and accommodating, the ambiance just relaxed. We will be returning again and again and again.

It’s amazing that Xolo continues to offer excellent food and drinks after 5 years in business. Best value near Villanova, whether for a casual dinner, date night or a group event. Carlos and his staff always deliver an exceptional dining experience. Ask for Carlos and the homemade habanero hot sauce!

I had such an amazing experience at Xolos that I had to write a review. This was my first time dining there and I was NOT disappointed. The margaritas were AMAZING and my server was patient and the nicest person ever. The food was authentic and reasonably priced. I can not wait to go back again. I would recommend this place to anyone that loves authentic Mexican food.

If your not with a large party don’t expect very much service. 3 of us Waited an hour for food and then cold. Waiter barely came to the table. After 10 minutes- We had to go find him to ask for condiments.

The food and our server were very good. Although we ate outside, the tables were very close together so we started to feel uncomfortable as it became more crowded. Also, when the bus girl cleared away our dishes, she knocked my to-go container off the table. The lid opened and my food spilled onto the floor. An apology was made but my food was not replaced.

Knocked 2 stars because the website information is deceiving. They advertise a happy hour then when you arrive tell you that it’s an hour earlier than the website mentions. It’s listed as 4-6 but is actually 3-5 which doesn’t even make sense for happy hour times.

Enjoyed the outdoor dining under the tent. Drinks were fun and varied, tortilla soup and jumbo shrimp entree dish were very tasty. Service was leisurely, but with enjoyable company on our first dinner out in over a year, we did not mind. Appreciated their outdoor options!

Xolo Tacos is a neighborhood gem! The menu is diverse and the food authentic. There is seating on the first floor, second floor, and they have added outdoor seating. The vibe is upbeat - lots of young people in addition to more "mature" diners such as my husband and myself. The decor is fun! Their guacamole is amazing - creamy, fresh and delicious. We both ordered the shrimp fajitas with all the fixins - nice portion size for the shrimp and generous with everything else. Service was courteous and timely - even with a packed house. The manager stopped by our table a few times to check on us and our for when it came Super welcoming!
Parking is a little tight since half of the lot is now outdoor tent seating. I got the feeling a lot of patrons had walked there. We were able to get a parking spot in the lot - just be aware you may have to look around for street parking.
