Luis Marin of the Sarape Restaurants in Chalfont, Horsham, and Blue Bell is happy to bring you, Xilantro, a 70-seat upscale Mexican restaurant and tequila bar located in the heart of Wayne. It has been almost 20 years since Luis introduced us to true, home-cooked Mexican food when his first restaurant Los Sarapes opened in Doyelstown. The Marin family set out to Break the paradigm of the chain style-Mexican food and faced the daunting task of competing with an existing perception of Mexican cuisine. An excellent review from a local critic was a blessing to the Marin family in these early years, and as Los Sarapes continued to prove itself, the Luis was able to expand his culinary pursuits. Now Luis has brought his family’s tradition of true Mexican fare to the Main Line.

“Our goal is to introduce the Main Line to authentic old-world Mexican cuisine with a contemporary flair,” explains owner Luis Marin. “The Xilantro menu features a variety of authentic Mexican dishes with the freshest ingredients and a common theme – seasonal, flavorful and spectacular!”

Xilantro, based on the Aztec spelling of “cilantro,” is an ingredient frequently used in some of the most authentic Mexican dishes. This new addition to Wayne’s dining scene has a modern feel with an expansive bar and a stylish upscale decor. Xilantro’s menu features our chef’s progressive and authentic Mexican fare. In addition, all of the dishes made with corn products are gluten free.

Xilantro’s clean, modern interior offers a contemporary and chic setting that is perfect for every occasion whether it be Saturday night drinks or a weekday lunch or dinner. The interior was designed by Morrissey Design and captures the laid-back feel of a traditional cantina with modern flair.

The bar at Xilantro houses one of the largest selections of premium tequila in the area, with over 100 tequilas to choose from, along with Mexican inspired cocktails, Mexican beers & wines from around the world. For those watching their waistlines, a “Skinny Margarita” made from a family recipe of fresh ingredients is offered.
