I love the atmosphere of Haydees and the service is great. I really want the food to be better! But it's still pretty expensive and the quality is really not good. The margaritas are also not good, they just use the sweet margarita mix. Worth going for just a beer and hanging out for live music or karaoke.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by this colorful restaurant. We chose Haydees because we were looking for Latin American food and this restaurant had decent ratings. The decor is a bit funky but fun, and the soundtrack of 80s music had us reminiscing about the good ole days! We were quickly seated and helped by a very friendly... More

I have always had a good time at Haydee's. The food is consistently good and plentyful. The margaritas are very good and the staff is friendly and upbeat. I particularly like the easy going atmosphere and the music. Neighborhood bands play, young musicians get a chance to show their talent, people drop by for a few guest appearances. The owners...

This bar has the atmosphere of a fun and funky DC neighborhood dive, with an overtone of Central American that stretches from the decor to the music on the jukebox. I had the ceviche, which was authentic and tasty. If the weather's cold, it can be chilly near the windows.

One has to know and get beyond the outside look and the funky decor of the restaurant. Once you settle in, the staff is attentive serving you with big smile. You can also practice your Spanish with the staff and the other patrons at the bar. Margarita is very popular here (don't expect fancy bartender mixed). Most dishes are good.... More

Had heard of Haydee's long before I ventured into Mt. Pleasant to check it out. A friend plays in Rock Creek Jazz which performs twice a month and there's some kind of entertainment four night a week, maybe more. The food is better than the regular Mexican familiar to most Americans and the audience is a lot of fun, oftentimes... More

Nice atmosphere. Very cool building inside, and huge. Two levels with several bars, and a balcony. DJ was good. Bartenders were cool. The drinks with fresh squeezed oranges and grapefruits are awesome.

This place is (from my experience) your typical casual Hispanic food restaurant. I ordered the veggy quesadilla ($8.25) and cheese pupusas ($4.99 for 2). Both were tasty and the veggy quesadilla was particularly great because they used whole fresh vegetables instead of a few slivers of frozen onions/peppers like some places make. The bartender told me that the margaritas are... More

Hubby and I had a great time at Haydee's. We had a Groupon for our visit. The steak fajitas and beef enchiladas are excellent! We also had the Fiesta Margaritas and they were also yummy!

I went here with friends with a groupon deal. I had absolutely zero expectations for how good the food would be, but I was so pleasantly surprised. I had the fajita steak taco salad, and the steak was sooooo delicious. (And the taco shell was different from others I've had. I don't know what made it different, but I liked... More
