Our family is proud to bring truly authentic Mexican Cuisine to our home here in New Hope, PA.
When he opened the restaurant in 2004, Enrique had a very clear idea of the food he wanted to serve: the food he grew up eating in Mexico. The food you will enjoy is authentic Mexican, the kind of food you can only eat when you go to Mexico. We take pride in saying that all of our salsas, tortillas and corn chips are vegetarian and made on premises.
Our Margarita Mix is an old family recipe made with fresh lime juice. Bring your own Tequila and make yourself the best Margaritas in town!
We also offer a variety of vegetarian options and kids' meals. All of our dishes are made from scratch, creating a truly memorable dining experience.

My wife planned an eventful day in New Hope on Fathers Day. After the Ivyland Train event, we were in the mood for Mexican. We chose Blue Tortilla over Taco Loco because we thought our son preferred to sit outside. Service was pretty good. The chicken mole enchiladas were amazing. My wife had the enchiladas with the grandmothers sauce. To me it tasted like pasta sauce on an enchilada. She thought it was ok and it was something different. They had a kids menu which is always a plus. The main negative of this place is the price. For each enchiladas plate it was $16 and only 2 come in the dish! My sons plate was $11 for shredded chicken and plain Mexican rice! In total it cost us $60 for lunch....I do recommend this place but not all the time as you will end up going broke :)

I've dined in LA, NY, ciudad de mx, etc. the dude who could not get over the $3 chips really cheated himself out of the exquisite flavors the chef perhaps the owner delivered the night I dined there. the pork dishes were sublime and represented true mexican flavors that I can attest to. from the achiote of the Mayan, (portion little smaller than I would normally like)the liveliness of the tomatillo salsa. It's the first place i've seen in the area that makes heir own tortilla!!!!
I can assure all that this place does not compromise on the quality of its ingredients. many folks might have expected a punch of jalapeno but I think the owner was trying to elevate the senses of the diners by introducing a more delicate but true and relatively unknown side of Mexican cuisine.
The area might not be ready for a such an out of the box Mexican but I would encourage all to come indulge something unique and original for the folks at blue tortilla seem to display a love and care for the thoughtful dishes.
They just need a little more fine tuning on the service, (Iwas greeted 4 times and asked how many in my party) but these kind of growing pains can be expected by folks that just want deliver good food to good folks.
The unique and exquisite flavors have won over than shortcomings for me.
I hope you will enjoy asIdid.

Delicious but Pricey. I am originally from New Mexico, so I am always looking for good Mexican food. This is traditional Mexican, not Tex-Mex.
We started with chips and salsa. They serve the chips with both their red and green salsas. Both are great, but I liked the red and my husband liked the green better. Don't get me wrong, they are both great. The chips were warm and crispy! They weren't too thick or too thin...they were just right and they serve you a large portion. By the way, this is not complimentary, chips and salsa here, costs $.
I had the pork in salsa verde with mashed black beans, rice and homemade corn tortillas. It was delicious. The pork was tender and quite lean...just enough fat to flavor and the salsa verde had the perfect spice and saltiness to compliment the pork. My husband had the quesadillas with chicken. (They are more like soft corn tortilla tacos) I took a bite of his quesadilla and loved the flavor of the chicken; it must have been marinated because it was superb! I seriously can't say enough about the flavor of the chicken...and it was so moist!
There was only my husband and me in the restaurant when we started, but our service was very slow. We waited and waited for drink refills and our check at the end of the meal. The check, by the way, was a little much for what it was, over $40 with tip for two people. You pay for the ambience, the authenticity and great paper products in the ladies room. My husband works for a janitorial e commerce site so I get to try out all the various paper goods samples he brings home. Of the various products my favorite brand is Preference paper towels. Even though my husband sells the various paper products wholesale to customers such as commercial kitchens, laboratories, hospitals and clinics, the site also sells retail. Fortunately for me my husband gets great deals so I always have my Preference paper towels on hand. You can't imagine my surprise when I saw the paper towels on a shelf in the ladies room, along with Preference toilet paper rolls and Preference C-Fold Paper Towels- (the paper towels that come out of dispensers). I had to wonder if the Blue Tortilla Restaurant management bought their paper goods at CleanItSupply.com
I don't remember seeing anything on the menu for children, and with the prices,I don't think I'd bring kids here.
Will I be back? Probably, since this is good, homemade, authentic Mexican food in a lovely setting.

Enchiladas verdes. Fantastic meal! The verdes sauce is homemade, and follows the family's grandmother's recipe. They even sell it in a jar for your enjoyment at home. The enchiladas come with chicken, but can be made with mushroom or cheese. They come with beans and rice. Don't miss out on their guacamole, either. LOVE THESE! GET THEM!

POSITIVE Excellent food and service! You get what you pay for!! All Mexican food is not Taco Bell cheap!!! Blue Tortilla is a lovely restaurant with charming indiginous art in beautiful New Hope near the Delaware river and Lambertville bridge*!*

Very disappointing. Very expensive for mediocre food.
My friends and I decided to try this place. We sat down and saw the prices on the menu. We figured they must offer big portions for the prices they were charging (and we're from the NYC area! HOW NAIVE we were!). We decided to order the nachos (priced at $13) and order more if he were still hungry. Then we noticed the $10 minimum per person notice at the bottom of the menu. That left us with a bad taste in our mouth before we even got the food.
The nachos were barely enough for two people. And why use Parmesan cheese? We were still hungry. My friends ordered the quesadilla app ($16 I believe) and I ordered the quesadilla with guacamole ($17). We could have gotten more authentic Mexican food from Taco Bell. Very bland.Ialso noticed that the lettuce and tomatoes on my plate had Italian dressing on them. Was this Italian-Mexican fusion?
Do not let the cute atmosphere suck you in. KEEP WALKING!!!
