The service was poor. The food was mediocre. The prices were high. If you are happy to get ripped off, visit this restaurant.

Staying close by we decided to try something new. So glad we did! I had a dish with shrimp, tomato, onion, and green pepper. One of the best meals I have ever had! I want the recipe! Wish this place was near my home.

Great meal, very reasonably priced. The chicken fajitas was tender and flavorful. The papusas are delicious, be careful not to over order. Even though they are only $2.50 each, they are big. At lunch it wasn't too crowded and service was great.

In town for a conference with the kids. The food was fantastic!! Sangria was tasty. Kids split the twin burrito and it was gone quickly.

Nice lunch enjoying Salvadorian food. We enjoyed the guacamole dip to start. The steak burrito was huge and delicious. The Guanaco combination with chicken tamales was an interesting way to sample several different types of food.

Lovely place. Great food. I recommend this spot for a family reunion. In my case, because I am from Mexico, it feels like home-made food. I recommend the tortas de pollo 🍗 (they are not in the menu but they will make them for you...More

As an Arizonan living in DC until 2010, this was my favorite place to go to in the District to get Mexican food that reminded me of home. I recently returned while in town for a work trip and could not have been more disappointed....More
