    Would NOT recommend. Staff was rude, food is gross, drinks are boring and not even fresh. Being a tequila bar I was disappointed is see them using margarita mix. Definitely a fail.

    The salsa looked and tasted like it was from a can. Had the blancas enchiladas, nothing to rave about.

    Great Mexican food! Chicken nachos are the best in the business.

    This is especially nice in the warmer months when the patio area is open and the kids can get fresh air and the noise they make isn't contained by walls.

    I'm going to fantasize about the chicken quesadilla for a long, long time. Make sure you get Jeff as your server...he's friendly, attentive, and fast. Couldn't have had a better experience.

    Typical MarMex (Maryland-Mex). Nothing to write home about. Another place where if you don't know Authentic Mexican you'll love it

    More "Tex" than "Mex", but don't miss Gilberto's Specialties, which are all Baja inspired fresh seafood dishes and they do a great house margarita !

    Go to La Palapa and skip the enchilada verdes. The steak fajita was the perfect color pink.
