    One of only few restaurants open late at night in the area, which is great because the tacos are cheap and tasty!

    Try the tacos and retried beans, or the grasshopper taco if you dare!

    Delicious black bean soup. Very well prepared.

    Ceviche de chamoy is delicious and tender but very spicy - be aware. Oyamel margarita is very sweet. Go with the smoky ones instead.

    Order table side guac as you take in the eclectic atmosphere
  • Pueblo Viejo Tequila
    The Easter colors reflect in a Margarita mixed with Pueblo Viejo. Get yours here at Oyamel Cocina Mexicana.

    Try the squid ceviche! It's sour and spicy, you'll love it.
  • Pueblo Viejo Tequila
    If you want to freshen up with a delicious cocktail at Oyamel Cocina Mexicana, try a Paloma mixed with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.

    Don't fill up on overpriced guacamole and chips. There are so many yummy things to eat and try! The tuna ceviche, camarones (this pictured shrimp dish), and the shredded braised beef taco are musts.
  • Pueblo Viejo Tequila
    When you visit Oyamel Cocina Mexicana start by ordering a delicious cocktail mixed with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.

    Small plates and portions but very good. A large appetite may need two.

    Great Hora Feliz (Happy Hour), with great prices on small plates, tacos, and drinks. Cheers!

    Nice for a weekday lunch, plenty of filling and less pricey items. Noise level: "energetic."

    Try the handmade guacamole. It is made at your table. The monitors are good too.

    I enjoyed very much this place. I'm Mexican and I assure you that they've nailed it! The "Pastel de tres leches" is simply a piece of heaven on earth.

    Great tacos, as a Mexico City native I can say these place serves the best tacos in DC. Handmade corn tortillas and top quality ingredients are key to an excellent flavor. Impressive mezcal list too!

    In life, there are some things you don't always want in your mouth. That includes grasshopper and lengua. But here, you want them (in taco form) in your mouth all. the. time.

    You really can't go wrong with any of the taco options here, but highly recommend the pescado Baja California, lengua guisada, carnitas estilo Michoacán, and pancita de puerco al pastor tacos.

    This place is absolutely awesome! This is one of celebrity chef José Andrés' several DC restaurants and it didn't disappoint. The guacamole was FANTASTIC! I recommend the "de Res" braised beef taco!!
