This is our first visit since they moved to the new location. The enchiladas were tasty. I had a chicken special with pineapple that was also well done. The service was good. Nice hustle.

The food was awesome. Some of the best Mexican food I've had in a really long time. The enchiladas were excellent and the fajita vegetables were fresh and unique (cauliflower, broccoli, potato among others). My only complaint was the noise level. I couldn't hear my...More

El Sarape's former Blue Bell location on Skippack Pike was always known for its fiesta atmosphere. Their new digs around the corner on DeKalb Pike keep the party going, but with a number of improvements. First, the decor is larger with more windows and earth...More
