Stuck to the specialty tacos which were great. Went back the next night for more of the sangria. They will create custom tacos if you ask nicely. Great patio and service.

After researching multiple other locations to celebrate NYE in D.C., my friends and I were most fortunate to choose the perfect spot at Johnny Pistolas. The cover was comparable to other venues in the city, but every $ spent in that flat fee was well...More
