Mexican Post in CC is a comfortable atmosphere and moderately fun if you are college age. The food is good, but I would call it texmex, not Mexican. Drinks are alright for the price, but I wouldn't call them great. \r

Been going to both Mexican Post locations for many years. Just stopped into the Cherry Street location for an early dinner and was super disappointed. Won't be going back. The menu has been revamped and scaled way back. (After chatting with the waitress, it's evident it was done as a cost-cutting measure.) The first margarita she brought out was nothing but water. When we mentioned it, she apologized and brought another round. They were much better. (not great, but good.) The food was really bad. The guacamole tasted like something from a supermarket. Our entrees were rather bland as well. Oh, even the complimentary nacho chips they served were stale. Very sad to see this happen at one of my favorite Center City haunts. Won't be back.

Pros: Good service, nice patio, nice atmosphere

Cons: food & drinks (kinda key in the resturant biz)

I can't imagine why anyone who has eaten here would ever come for round two. There are so many amazing Mexican restaurants in the Phila area, there is no reason to settle for Mexican Post. The Tortilla soup looked and tasted like someone put tortillas and water in a blender and poured it in a dish. The black bean soup was thick and flavorless. The "snapper" tasted like it was previously frozen and was topped with what tasted like jarred salsa. The Veggie salad tasted pretty good going down, but both my partner and I suffered from stomach aches the rest of the night. If you want GOOD Mexican food, try Las Cazuelas at 4th and Girard or one of the many authentic taquerias near the Italian market. Tamarindos in Blue Bell has FREE awesome margaritas, savory soups, creative entrees, and a whole fresh grilled snapper encrusted in garlic that puts Mexican Post's snapper to shame.

In short, save your money....or go to Taco Bell; there's not really that much difference.

We first found Mexican Post when we were walking around in Philadelphia for a bite to eat. The Mexican Post just stood out and when the food came we couldn't have been more impressed. Super food!

I am a lover of food! Of flavor! Especially mexican food; and I have to say the BEST thing I had at the Mexican Post tonight was the Modelo Especial and the salsa :-/ My mom bought my a gift cert for dinner so we went after Christmas shopping today; a long day and, well, we were kinda, no really, let down. The service was GREAT! Fast! Pleasant! But food was...well, eh. We had to dump the salsa into the Queso to "spice" it up. My seafood salad was SO salty I couldn't eat it and had to send it back. I ordered an a la carte enchilada and it pretty much tasted like.......nothing. Furthermore, my mom's Chicken Chimmichanga was, well, JUST CHICKEN; there was no sauce or seasoning or ANYTHING else inside and very liitle sauce outside.....good thing she had salsa and queso to dump on top. I brought home a veggie burrito for my husnad. He liked the beans and rice, but agreed that the main item, the burrito, needed some, any, flavor, other than hot (which I ordered). My advice.....go to La Esperanza in Lindenwold, NJ or whichever "real" mexican restaurant you have near you:(

Great location, especially to grab a drink with co-workers outsde in the summer. Basic Mexican, but atmosphere is nice. Food is reasonably priced. Not gourmet.

I love mexican food and Mexican Post definitely hits the spot! There are two locations in Philadelphia, but this newer location is a great atmosphere to enjoy some good food and fun. I would definitely recommend giving it a try!

The inside is trendy and it's always great to have the option of an outside patio. I've eaten there twice and will say that the food was only mediocre. Not bad, just not great.

Pros: Outside patio

Cons: Not a memorable meal

I have visited this location many a times. Matter of fact, I have been visiting Old City Mexican Post since 17 years. There are many reviews written about both these locations. My two cents......

Old City - Been in the city for many years - Almost 20. You will see many of the same employees (Unheard of in the food service industry. - Almost makes me feel like I am in Boston at CHEERS :). They have good food, great drinks and above average customer service. All for an extremely affordable price. Atmosphere is rustic and reminds you of Mexico.

Love Park - Very upscale for a Mexican Post. Great location and ambience. Very young HIP crowd. Great Drinks and good food that is reasonably priced. The out door patio is probably one of the largest in the city. Can fit a party of 100 easily. The bar is unreal. They carry over a 100 Tequilas. If you are really looking for great Mexican food, I would recommend that you go to Tequilas. If you are looking for good food, and a great after hour place, Mexican Post is it. If you live in Center City like I do, I strongly recommend you to visit places like Tir Na Nog or Public House and compare their drink prices with Mexican Post. My beer tastes the same no matter where I buy it...... I strongly recommend this place.

Cons: They don't carry enough vairety of Wine. Service is average.

Big mexican food fan, unfortunately have yet to have a good meal here. If you like the Mexican Post, make sure to eat at the Front and Chestnut Street location where they pay more attention to you and your food. Last time I ate here, my girlfriend's enchilada was watered down and tasted as if it had just come out of the microwave. The service has been inconsistent, although last time they were very apologetic after the watered down enchilada. The bar scene is pretty neat though, especially on a warm day where you can sit on the patio. However, if you are a fan of mexican food, there are better places out there.
