Intended to have a margarita, but went for a "Swirl" instead -- delicious blend of margarita and sangria. Nachos were great and so was the service. A little bit pricey, though.

Love the fajitas Jalisco - the chips and tortillas are fresh. Guac and salsa fresh. Great tex mex. can get loud but always worth the visit.

Uncle Julios is a local chain; all of them have consistently good Mexican themed food that I go back for again and again.

The Ballston location is as good as the one in Bethesda that I frequent. The happy hour deals, outdoor seating options as well as huge indoor seating make this a good destination in the area. The food is good and their chips and salsa are worth the trip alone!

Great food, homemade dipping chips. Ambiance perfect.

YaDa YaDa, On and on.

This is to fulfill the requirement to use at least 100 characters minimum.
