Arrived around 7:30 pm on a Tuesday. Busy, but they were able to seat us (5) right away. Across the street is the very popular Bing Bing Dim Sum, which was not able to seat us indoors (and too chilly out for us). Wait staff relaxed, friendly, very slow to take order. It seemed as if they had a good... More

Loved the whole ambiance. Especially the bright, vibrant colors. Food was absolutely delicious! Seating a bit tight but other than that, great experience.

I was positively surprised by the many vegetarian options on the menu. I had really good vegetarian tacos and also enjoyed some very delicious margarita. Seems like the kitchen had pretty high ambitions, without being too pretentious. Really liked the relaxed atmosphere.

We arrived at 6 and were seated at a table for 4 near the entry to the kitchen. The hostess provided menus and left us to study them. The lighting was very poor so we had to take out a phone to illuminate the menu. The waiter arrived to take drink orders and answer any questions. We had many questions... More

We stopped in for dinner and drinks on a Sunday night. The patio was inviting, but we chose the dining room with its stucco walls and twinkly lights. The low lighting and loud music make it a destination for a good time. However, conversation was challenging. Service was excellent. The margaritas were good and there were craft beers on draft....

My husband and I met some of our friends here for a late night dinner. We ordered drinks, apps, and dinner. I had the duck tacos to try something different, they were good. Everyone enjoyed their food however, there was not much of a selection. On the other hand, there was a huge selection of tequila and they have tequila... More

Went with some friends for dinner the other evening. Started with some margaritas at the bar which were very good. Moved onto the patio which had a nice ambiance. The service was nice and relaxed and the food was good. Had some empanadas to start, then mixed entrees including the cabrito, duck tacos and chicken burrito. Really enjoyed the tres... More

We were in South Philly and hungry on a warm August night. We decided to check out Los Caballitos, arriving a bit after 9 p.m. We were 4 adults and one 8 year old child. We were served an appetizer of taco chips and salsa shortly after we arrived. Los Caballitos has a good selection of draft beers and a... More

I've dined here three times on separate trips to Philly, and each time I've tried a different dish -- all delicious -- with margarita options (try guava). The atmosphere is fun, with a bar on the left side, booths for conversation in the middle, and outside dining.
