Yes, the place is a bit of a dive and the dining area lacking in ambience. But what makes this establishment worthwhile is the dishes that are worth the trip, starting with their tacos (al pastor and the seafood kinds were my favorite), the tostadas,...More

I love the burritos and tacos here, and if you enjoy Mexican food, I think that you will as well. It's a small place and they have Univision or Soccer going the whole time on small tv's. It's fun to eat there in the summer...More

It's hard to find authentic Mexican food in DC, but this place has it! The place is not much to look at, but the food is delicious and the service is great. The resturant is small, but there is additional seating outside. I went for...More
