1380 W. Skippack Pk
The dining room in Blue Bell's El Sarape restaurant is admittedly small, which only means that you might do well to make a reservation. But by whatever means you gain a table (reserving or waiting), it is well worth the effort. For an interesting flavor combination, try the sliced tenderloin that has been liberally marinated with a coffee-based chipotle sauce.
EL LIMON - MULTIPLE LOCATIONS
El Limon has four locations across our region, but it's the Conshohocken restaurant that was recognized by Yahoo! Food on its list of The Best Mexican Restaurants Across America. El Limon also has locations in Ambler, Ardmore and Malvern, Chester County.
8201 Germantown Ave
Located just across the border (the Philadelphia-Montgomery County border, that is), El Poquito is one of the hottest Mexican restaurants in the region, thanks in part to their inventive street taco flavors like shrimp po' boy, Korean BBQ and quinoa.

Of Plaza Azteca's five Pennsylvania locations, two of them are in Montgomery County. In Plymouth Meeting, you'll find the same homemade flavors. The enchiladas rancheras (cheese enchiladas with shredded pork, onions and bell peppers) are some of the best enchiladas you'll find.

Cantina Feliz in Fort Washington has a vast Mexican menu - and plenty of helpful servers well-versed in guiding you through it. The culinary wizards at work here can take even the simple fish taco and turn it into a dish you will find yourself ordering again and again. Also, be sure to check out its sister restaurant, Taqueria Feliz, in Horsham.
128 N. Main St
Souderton's Xinantecatl makes everything fresh to order. The décor is extremely casual but comfortable. Attached to the restaurant is a retail operation that sells Mexican foodstuffs, including a rare stock of South American sodas.
