    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

    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

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

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

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

    The Guacamole en Molcajete (which is prepared table side) is a must. Ordered the Mole de Xico enchiladas which was very good. Also recommend ordering one of their margaritas (La Tradicional)

    I'm not a drinker, so I can't attest to the margaritas that are given here high praise. But I did notice there are not many accolades given about the food which I found to be pricey for just average.

    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!

    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.

    You have to get the freshly-made guac and whatever frozen drink they serve (probably the most potent drink in DC).

    Came on a Thursday night. Waited 40 mins for a table, service was slow, food is expensive, and it wasn't well flavored. If you like Tex-mex, prepare for tasting paper at this place.
