The veggie fajitas are a good way to have a guiltless and healthy meal. The vegetables are flavorful, you can add meat to the dish for an extra charge. The qeuso Blanco is homemade and hearty. Definitely stop by for some South of the border flavor in the middle of Old Georgetown.

What a fun little place to eat! This place has pretty good food and huge portions even when you order the lunch size.

We've been here twice-the first time every thing was phenomenal. The second time the service was very slow and the food was hit or miss. It was a busy Saturday night, which did account for some of the slowness. However, some of the food arrived at the table barely lukewarm and not as we had requested. It was late though... More

Standard Mexican fare with standard local Mexican restaurant surroundings and with friendly service. OK guacamole, perfectly acceptable enchiladas with reasonable margaritas. If you really want there are some strange 'feature' drinks that seem to involve drip feeding beer into a cocktail of some kind. This seems beyond bonkers to me but it involves a strange contraption that some of the... More

45 minutes + to get a salad with overcooked, tasteless salmon. Way too loud. Crowded. Cheesy decor. Decent chips and margaritas (after 30 minutes, on the drinks). 1st and last visit.

Visiting children and grandchildren and carrying out a long-standing tradition of having Mexican food on Christmas Eve found us at Los Cuates, What a great time we had. The margaritas, especilly the Cadillac, were most enjoyable. Next time, it's the large in for me!! The fajitas turned out to be the most popular - shrimp, steak and steak and shrimp.... More

TLDR: Meat in veggie meal. Details: I think this is my first 1 star review, which is a shame, but ah well. Since we're vegetarian, we ordered two main dishes which are listed as vegetarian on the menu (not vegetable, specifically vegetarian). Food seemed quite nice, until my wife bit into an unidentifiable chunk of meat. We've both been vegetarian... More

Very nice evening at Los Quates. Tonight we were greeted with fast friendly service with excellent chips& salsa. Delicious burrito Vera cruz (seafood burrito). With dinner we had a Marvelous margarita. Stop in if your in Georgetown area of DC for a wonderful meal.

Gf and I visited around Thanksgiving time. We're a huge fan of spicy Margarita's. We ordered the Diablo and split it...we're not big drinkers! We absolutely loved it, and rank the margarita as amongst our top most. We're small eaters and ordered plantain as appetizer. Simply divine, and the combo of the spiciness, and sweetness ...brought out the flavors in... More
