My friends took me to El Vez for my birthday in August and I was so excited to come here because I heard so many great reviews. This place was PACKED so it would be best to make reservations if you have a large party.
The service was great, the drinks were perfection (we had a few pitchers of the Pink Cadllac) and the food was delish.
So good, I went back for someone else's birthday a few weeks ago and definitely plan to come back.. I would like to try it for lunch too.

We have tried a lot of Mexican restaurants but our visit to philly was improved by our experience at El Vez. The food was great, the atmosphere was awesome and our server was delightful. I would recommend this restaurant and if I come back to Philly definitely make it part of my time here

Cool decor and atmosphere.
Friendly staff.

While the menu is not traditional Mexican, they certainly offer a wide variety of food. The food is always delicious. Their fries are amazing, as are the nachos. Typically a little pricier than the average lunch in Center City, it is well worth it.

We stopped in for a quick drink during a recent trip to the city. Great drinks! Came in during lunch and walked right in sitting at the bar. Very friendly staff. We shared a small appetizer which was delicious. Highly recommended and we will be back.
