Went to celebrate Father's Day...we have never been there. The food was great, the service was great too, it was just too hot to enjoy anything. The air conditioning while on...was clearly not doing the job. I was sweating while eating!

Not a 5 star restaurant, with that said, the dishes we had were bursting with flavor and the young lady that waited on us(Leah?) was delightful. I would go back.

We've eaten here before and have always found the food simply excellent. Yesterday, we ate at El Tule and they outdid themselves with both service and the dishes we ordered. We will definitely eat here again.

Absolutely amazing food. We got the tostanes fusion, ceviche trio, and huevos rancheros. Generous portions, good atmosphere, and our wait was very helpful and courteous. I wish I could have tried more items on the menu but the stomach can only handle so much.

The love of family, friends and great food is a tradition for the Egoavils.Having relocated to the United States from Peru in 1992, they sought the opportunities their new home offered. El Tule was previously the home of another restaurant offering Mexican fare. The Egoavil Family has infused the eatery with a vibe all its own. El-Tule’s Mexican-Latin fusion includes traditional Mexican offerings as well as the addition of Peruvian menu items. Peruvian food has been gaining momentum among foodies across the nation, and prior to El Tule was extremely hard to find in the Delaware Valley. El Tule offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Guests may bring their own wine or alcohol of choice. Our patio is dog friendly. *Taco Tuesdays* $3 Tacos Mix & Match ... Pollo, carne asada, al pastor, chorizo, sudadero, vegetable ... Add $1 for shrimp and red snapper tacos - minimum of 2 for offer. ... *Local Wednesday* Ask for our Prix fixe three course $25
