Customer Ratings

Service was amazing. Max was probably the best server we’ve had at any restaurant, ever. He Seemed to genuinely care if we had an enjoyable experience at the restaurant, and was incredibly attentive. The food was delicious and very flavorful. Even the chips & salsa were great. The salsa was some of the best I’ve had anywhere.

Ted Voltolina – Google Review

An extremely popular Mexican restaurant on 13th street, El Vez is perennially packed and a reservation is highly recommended. I would definitely suggest trying the mushroom truffle queso, while the baked Nachos are a must try. El Vez does demand a premium but with the quality of guacamole and other ingredients, it is definitely worth it. The service was prompt and on Sundays, they do offer a special brunch menu although we could not try it.

Fun fact: El Vez means “The Time.” So I suppose it’s about time you get off your computer and make the trip here to taste some of the best Mexican food in Philly? Sure.

The food is great. Starting with the guacamole, which is served with the tastiest warm tortilla chips, is an absolute must. I love love love the black bean enchiladas so much that I order them every time I dine here. My meat-eating friends also always rave about their meals.

The only problem that I’ve encountered here is some facets of the service. Our server was nice, but she would disappear for very long periods of time and rarely refilled our waters. Not a huge issue, but just something that could use some improvement.
