The family didn't want a tourist trap food area, and we found this place. Really great Mexican, authentic sauces, awesome guac, and good prices. The only negative was that our waitress was a bit inattentive when drinks needed to be filled, and more chips were needed on the table. We went when it was not busy.

We were in the mood for Mexican food and we saw this restaurant down the street from our hotel. We stopped in and although it was really busy, we were seated immediately and waited on within minutes. Food was excellent and the best part was the live Mariachi band!

If you want authentic Mexican food and lovely music, this is the place. Not very busy for a Saturday afternoon but very tasty food and the atmosphere is casual, laid back. Great staff too.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Greater DC area. Every 2 weeks or so we drive nearly 2 hours to eat here. On our last visit the temperature was a sweltering 101 degrees. We rushed from the car through their parking lot expecting the cool A/C inside the restaurant - only to discover their A/C was totally out... More

I love how empty buildings along Richmond Highway in Alexandria have been turned into colorful restaurants, in large part by Latinos, that offer good food at good prices with friendly staff. This place is no exception, but the food is, I have to warn you, very very heavy, and even 17 hours later, my tummy continues to protest. Other than... More

We looked and looked and looked some more for a good Mexican restaurant in this area... We walked in and out of 3 others before finding this one, and it was worth it. Our food was excellent; our margaritas were very good. The service was very good. It's definitely nothing fancy to look at, but it's very good, authentic food!

My colleague and I came in today for a really short lunch. We were very pleased with the authenticity and quality of the food, the quickness of the service and the lack of a crowd. We will be coming back again with more people and to enjoy drinks along with the well priced food. Thanks

Loved their gorditas. Was not very busy. Don't understand why. Much better than Taco Bell. Margaritas were a bit pricey.
