According to Zapotecan folk songs, "106 Bottles of Tequila" is the maximum load any one establishment can bear. Mexican Post puts this fact-based myth to the test by bravely stocking 107 different types of tequila (arguably the largest selection in Philly) alongside an extensive army of classic dishes. With today's Groupon, $15 gets you $30 worth of cuisine and drinks at this lore-defying establishment. You can redeem your Groupon at either the Love Park or Old City location.
The rustic interior of Mexican Post sets the tone for the restaurant's menu and hourly Battle of the Alamo reenactments. Starters ($4.75–$7.45) include savory engine revvers such as classic quesadillas, bean dip, or the camarones Acapulco (five shrimp stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon, deep-fried, and served with chipotle sauce). Fulfill your destiny with a larger plate, such as the deluxe burrito mesquite topped with special sauce, grilled veggies, cheese, peppers, and onions ($12.45) or an order of fan-favorite flautas ($10.25). Mix and match tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, and more across various combos ($8.95–$10.95). Accompany and lubricate your meal with a margarita featuring a potent dash from one of the 107 different tequila varieties, or sample a straight shot as anesthetic for an authentic Civil War–style operation.
The rusty brick walls and south-of-the-border décor invitingly transport diners of all heights and career aspirations to a different place. Lasso a few of your amigos to grab some Mexican or take that special someone out for Mexican night without forcing them to cling precariously to a gulf-bound AH-64 Apache. Spend an evening sampling tequilas and tasty cuisine while swapping old timey stories about how the west was won.
- Catering to the young professionals who work nearby, this local mini-chain has spruced up its image for its sleek new Center City offshoot; but though the adobe-colored walls and banquette seating are all grown-up, its scruffy spirit lives on in the just-out-of-college crowd that’s content to quaff margaritas, munch on nachos and cue up some Jimmy Buffett on the juke. – Zagat
- Everything about this restaurant is excellent - food, margaritas, service. The prices are also very reasonable. I go to The Post often and have never been disappointed. I have gone to other Mexican restaurants and wished I was at The Post instead. – Debba9802, TripAdvisors
- My friend invited me to the happy hour at Mexican Post and I'm so glad I came!...Margaritas by the glass or pitcher in varieties of flavors (we got the mango). The bartender was friendly and service was quick and efficient. – TUEatsFood, Citysearch
