Visited yesterday for menudo. We also ordered a side of guacamole and a couple of beers (Victoria). The menudo was excellent. Although not common, I enjoy my menudo with hominy but that wasn't available. Other than that, service and the food were top notch. Will be returning!

After just one visit here, I can see why El Sarape is so well-loved in the Hartford community. Enrique and his staff brought out some truly authentic Mexican food and drinks that really impressed us. The birria tacos were definitely some of the best I've had, and they introduced us to a cantarito for the first time! I appreciated the time they took in the presentation of their dishes as well. My boyfriend loves spicy food, so the camarones a la diabla was a huge hit for him. I love mole sauce and really enjoyed the enchiladas, and we couldn't get over how big the burrito was! Everyone was very pleasant to us during our dine-in experience, and we could see that there were a lot of Doordash orders coming in while we were there. El Sarape is clearly very well-known in the Frog Hollow community, and for good reason!

They have good menu and I really love their burrito.


My wife and I are Mexican and lived in the Hartford area for more than 3 years. As soon as we discovered El Nuevo Sarape it became our number one choice for most of the Mexican dishes. It is authentic! Try the Flautas and ask them to serve it with Mole Negro: True Oaxacan flavor!... The Quesadilla con Hongos is a heavenly dish... The Semitas are exceptional... And the Margaritas are as good as the ones you would find in the Kentucky Club in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, arguably the place where the cocktail was invented. They have a convenient parking lot and Cristina is a wonderful host!

tl;dr - food was bland, tasteless and overpricedIn full: I hate to give low reviews and typically if I don't like a place I just never go there again but this place deserved one because of how low the quality was and how poor the taste of the food was across all the meals we had for the price we were charged. We ordered 4 separate dishes. Two sets of Taco's, Mole Poblano and Enchiladas Nortenas. They all suffered from being bland and rather tasteless. It would have been a 1 star experience if we didn't finish the food. Not to mention that the above plus two drinks came to $60 it's essentially a rip off.

The best Mexican Food I've had in Connecticut!!!! Being from Southern California, I know good Mexican Food like the back of my hand. This little spot, is so darn tasty!!!!!! Their carne asada tacos are WONDERFUL!!!!! AUTHENTIC, which is hard to find here!!!!!! I haven't had a good carne asada taco in Connecticut until today!!!!!!!! Plus, they have all of the fun yummy Mexican candies!!!!!!! The neighborhood isn't the best, but I can ignore that for some good food! LOL!!!!!!

The carne asada tacos are dry and not good but I haven’t tried anything else! The customer service is good

Great place to eat in if you just want to hang out. Food is actually good and they have some good churros


Polite. Not what it used to be. Low quality. Tortilla Chips were out of a bag, not fresh fried as old days.Charizzo overcooked.Needs more effort. Grill the onions, add tomatoes and cilantro side of crema. Then it might be better.
