    Very well priced! Good option for Christmas dinner. The Christmas dinner special had a four meal for $35. You will be very satisfied seeing the guacamole being prepared In front of you. Si

    Chicken in quesadilla was stringy and cheese covers half the quesadilla, brown rice has butter which defeats the purpose of eating healthy brown rice. Plaintain was very good. Great outdoor seating!

  • Nichole S.

    The food is excellent but our service was terrible. Once our food came we never saw the waiter again. We had to hunt the manager down to get our bill so we could pay to leave.

    The Suprema Margarita is expensive but u only need one.

    The beef short rib enchiladas are so freaking delicious! The beef was tender and the mestiza sauce was very tasty with a nice kick.

    The best Guacamole I've ever had !! I would go again and just eat the guacamole for my meal :) the crispy rolled chicken taco was also tasty

    Fried plantains were delicious but ask for a table away from the window -- flashing lights from the Verizon Center jumbotron were a bit obnoxious

    Manager is a jerk. Basically called me a liar. With customer service like that who needs other restaurants?!

    Great happy hour food and drink specials served by some of the friendliest bartenders in DC. Stop in and say hello to Pablo, Enrique, José and the rest of the staff. They certainly will treat you well

    Guac is indeed fresh and plentiful. For calorie counters skip the chips and eat with fork.

    If you have ever eaten in rosa Mexicana in NYC, do not eat here. The food is totally different, and is not that great. All they kept was the prices.

    Phillip Tiongson · July 31, 2013

    Get the home made guacamole. Worth it.

    Jessica Trovato · July 10, 2013

    House made Margaritas were great. Chips were ok but the guacamole was divine.

    The tacos with diver scallops and pork belly are AMAZING. Be sure to get a nice pitcher of sangria to go with it!

    Not your typical mid-Atlantic Mexican. Restaurant. Good stuff, unique menu, upscale Mexican food. Guacamole is great. Tequila selection is almost as good as what you get in Texas. Good service.

    The best guacamole! They make it table side. Although it is $14, it is worth it.
