As soon as you walk in the door you feel the Mexican atmosphere. From the décor, table cloths, music, and aroma, you know you're in the right place for Mexican food. They make everything fresh, so there is a little wait, but it's worth the while. Great guacamole, warm chips, good rice and beans. We each had a different meal... More

The food was really good and fresh. They have soft music in the background and tv's so you could watch the notiçias or novelas. The staff is friendly too. They also have a bar

Many of the best Mexican restaurants we've patronized over the years have been tucked away in strip malls - and it is a pleasure to include La Escondita in that group. The food is fresh, tasty, and nicely presented. The standard margaritas are outstanding. Staff are uniformly friendly, pleasant, attentive and helpful. The decor is decidedly south of the border...

Found this on Trip advisor on our way back from Cape May. From outside it is not inviting and not family friendly. First we were not sure whether it is good place for kids.. but when we entered inside was not that bad..food was little pricey than other Mexican restaurant that we have been. Chicken fajitas didn't have sour cream... More

This place is great! Another item on their menu Ive discovered is fantastic. Again I had my Lengua Tacos- delicious! A hot tea, cuz its cold outside. I also had their Tortilla Soup, its in Spanish on the menu: Aztec Sopa maybe, just ask for it. It was heavenly, rich broth, full of tortillas, chicken, cheese.... Everything tasted so fresh,...

I went with a friend of mine, (some might remeber her for "No fried chicken!") She had chicken wings and a Lime Margarita. I had Guacamole w/chips, Lengua Tacos and a Horchata. It was awsome!! The tacos taste so fresh, and the dip tasted like I went back there and made it myself. My drink was yummy with a dash... More

Great authentic mexican restaurant near the hotel. Prices were right and the portions were huge. We went during the happy hour and got some good Mexican beers along with the meals. One plate should be enough for two but we ordered two entrees. They were both delicious.

MY hiusband stayed at the Best Western next door and we asked the desk clerk if the nearby restaurant was good and he said most people enjoy it. Well we ate there with our grandson and were really impressed! The service was very good and the server was so pleasant. We were given our drinks and chips and salsa,but had... More

Stopped by the bar/restaurant next to my hotel. Sat at bar and ordered a beer and fish tacos. Great service by the bartender. The atmosphere was awesome. A soccer game on and the food was very good. Beer was very cold and love the lime slice on the bottle. Great staff and was a fun place for a tired traveler.
