This is a nice neighborhood spot when you're in the mood for Mexican. They have lots of different kinds of margaritas. The fish tacos and shrimp tacos are my favorites. And the churros with chocolate mole sauce is the best.

For a year or so we'd come here for food, happy hour, or late night happy hour three or more times a month-- frequent diners for sure. We introduced friends to the restaurant. Awesome quesadillas and frozen margaritas, at excellent prices. Unfortunately, it's been 4 or 5 times in a row now that service is absolutely horrible. I mean bad--one... More

Went for the first time on a Thursday at noon. Service was speedy because the restaurant was not very busy. The employees are warm and friendly. The food was alright---I ordered the chicken quesadilla and, although it was slightly too greasy, it tasted good and came with some tasty guacamole and pico de gallo. The worst part, by far, was...

Stopped in here while waiting for our reservation at another restaurant, sat at the bar and was quickly greeted by the bartenders. Got two strawberry margaritas and was given chips and salsa which were delicious. I almost wish we would have stayed for dinner here instead of where we went. Whenever we come back to D.C. I would definitely go... More

This restaurant is conveniently located to a hotel I stay at when traveling to D.C. for business. i have had dinner there several times, but feel that the quality had declined. My meal was sloppily served, without a plate to put the fajitas I ordered together. My server was inattentive.

Loved everything about this eatery, the ambience, the food and the friendly servers! We had the tortilla soup, it was good!! And steak and eggs for brunch, we shared it and it was enough for 2.

I was craving quesadilla and we found that place... I was not disappointed! Their cocktails are great too... and all at a reasonnable price! The service was okay, nothing remarkable. Watch out for the spicy food, some items are definitely HOT! The place is pretty noisy, so it might fit better for dinner with friends than for a date.

The manager Ahmad interacted with me shortly after I had ordered a chicken and a steak taco. He said the shrimp taco was their best, so I changed the steak to shrimp, and I was NOT disappointed. I returned multiple time over the 3 weeks I was there and ordered the shrimp tacos every time.

outstanding creative menu offering delicious food. The atmosphere is happy and buzzing with positive vibes. I loved their soup especially. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable as well as funny. They played well with our group. I would recommend this to anyone especially if you have a large group.
