    Beware that the information on their website might not be correct (location in Columbia Heights does not do the buffet but the site says it does, etc). Buffet is delicious!!

    This latin flavor restaurant is dominated by its bar and lounge area, a great place for a drink on any night of the week, go with the margarita or mexican beer to fit the mood

    Happy Hour 3:30p til 7pm. Swirl frozen margarita is a fave. Have the cilantro (green) rice. The authentic Mexican music is best-it gets wack when the dj starts with corny music in attempts to be cool.

    Parking is bad all the time! Take the train or give yourself 30/45 mins to look for parking. The swirl margarita and sangria are the BEST!

    The tacos Juarez are my preference. They are a good amount of food without being too heavy like a burrito.

    Our waiter spilled our drink, everyone was over served around us and it took 20 minutes to get the bill for one round. If you haven't ordered yet do yourself a favor and just leave.

    My frozen margarita was as thick as a smoothie. To some that might be unsettling.

    Worst service ever last night. I ordered taquitos.. they brought out tacos. My wife ordered shrimp..they forgot to put order in. At 9:30p the restaurant was slow so how can you mess up a table for 2?

    Service on a busy Saturday is awful. So much so that two tables walked out on their bills. THEN, mgmt asked all the tables for credit cards to be placed on hold. Last visit here for a while.
