    Yuck! Too loud, full of screaming children and processed Tex Mex Food. Much better fare in other parts of DC. Pass.

    Chicken was dry, taco was drenched with grease. Nice sized portions, but the food tasted like it wasn't made from the soul. Not coming back here. Nice waitresses

  • Norie W.

    The fajitas are amazing. Great for kids because of the tortilla making machine and the yummy kids menu.

    As a fourth generation Texan, if you're expecting Tex-Mex I would suggest going somewhere else.

    Not a fan. Enchiladas were dry, meat was bland and unseasoned, guacamole was either store bought or not made very well.

    Matt is an awesome server! Talk about helping a girl out - he found masking tape for my leftovers box so that it wouldn't leak on my bike ride home.

    The Cantina salad is excellent particularly if your want a good meal but not in/on a tortilla.

    Great good and even better margaritas, stay away from the tasteless enchiladas though.

    Don't expect to come here without seeing a child take its first steps. Prior to 8pm the bar area is basically a daycare.

  • Alex P.

    It's ALL about the margaritas. And the Sante Fe platter (vegetarian or not, it's AWESOME).

    Try the Paloma Platter - Scrumptious grilled quail with Mexican spices. #unique #tasty

    Margs at Guapos are better but the chips and food are the best I've found in NW
