First Pics: New Mexican restaurant opens at 12th and Snyder with late-night delivery

Taqueria La Mexicanita, a new Mexican takeout, is now open on the corner of 12th and Snyder, taking the place of the former Chinese restaurant.


That is one glorious mustache

They opened just five days ago with the business already beginning to pick up, according to worker Mary Gordillo.

Taqueria La Mexicanita offers a wide variety of Mexican and Spanish foods. They are also open 7 days a week from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., and they also deliver.

“The owner saw a good opportunity and took it,” said Gordillo. “He especially wanted the neighborhood to taste good quality Mexican food.”

You can reach Taqueria La Mexicanita at 215-858-4587.

    I’m glad they kept the buddha.

    Also glad to see the buddha survived the changeover as well. Walked in on a Monday night (the chinese place was never open on Mondays) and ordered a steak burrito and a pork burrito – both had good flavor and super cheap. Waited maybe 5 minutes tops. Will be back for more on occasion considering the proximity and price.

    Do they have a menu online somewhere we can view? I’d
    consider swinging by – but would like to check out the vegetarian
    options first!

      I searched for it on menupages and elsewhere but I can’t find it. Sorry for the oversight! Anyone out there have a picture of the menu they can send?
