    Best Tacqueria in DC by far. Tacos are great, horchata is even better (and not from a powder). But the Chiliquillies and the pork Plato Especial with green sauce are what I dream about.

    I didn't think real Mexican food existed in DC but I've been proven wrong! Their food is fantastic, look no further than here for tacos, tortas, you name it.

    I love that they give you chips and the spicy green sauce even when you're taking out. And the carne asada torta sandwich is awesome! Great handmade guacamole too.

    My boyfriend swears by the chorizo tacos. He also loves the Mexican coke. I got a cheese quesadilla once; it made me gag, but I don't think this muy authentic joint is for vegetarians, so ignore that.

    Carne asado taco was meh, but the goat and pork rib were very yummy! Make sure to add a splash of the house red sauce. Horchata is also tasty.

    The tacos were the BEST I've ever had. I tried the chicken and the goat. They were both amazing! Wash it all down with horchata!! Yum!

    The horchata is the only thing worth going back for. No beer, margs, sour cream, etc. The tacos were very dry. The high rating is misleading.

    Not what it used to be. Al pastor and chivo were both fatty and greasy without being very flavorful. They were out of tamales and chips, among other things. Try Taquería Habanero instead.

    Kind of bland taco shells mask the slow-roasted meats inside.
