Super disappointing. I was looking forward to finding a Mexican place with food but it was not worth going to.

The menu is the standard Mexican-Salvador selection. No moles or other complicated Mexican cuisine. But what they do they do very well. And the prices are quite reasonable. The staff is incredibly attentive and friendly, and will get to know you quickly. I'd give it...More

All food in DC is pricey but this place we like because the service is fast, the place is kid friendly and the food is good. This isn 't the best food you'll get _ I thought my carnitas were a little dry _ but...More
