    The caipirinha had a bitter taste, probably from lime pith. Guacamole came in a huge molcajete, and was delicious. Fajitas reminded me a bit of what we get back in Texas. Needed beans and cheese.

    Portions leave something to be desired but the food is great. Awesome margarita HH specials, including MASSIVE frozen margs. Such a chill atmosphere compared to the other stuffy restaurants across P.

    Plenty of room for Sunday brunch after being told we'd have to wait at least an hour at 3 other places in the neighborhood. Despite what others have said, service was very friendly and helpful.

    Got a salad, didn't realize they hid the word bacon in between all the veggies listed. Waitress very rude/threw menu "so u just want it off ur check now" I replied "I just want it without bacon"

    Their Salsa is Awesome! Fortunately, I didn't have the experience most have had. I loved the ambiance as well as the staff, and food was pretty good, not the BEST but good.

    Despite the other poor reviews, I've always had good, prompt, pleasant service. The menu selection isn't huge, but its been good. It's not the best I've ever had, but its still good.

    Worst salsa I've ever had. Everything was bland. I got the fish and shrimp tacos and they tasted like paper towels. The shrimp taco had pineapples in them..They thought it was clever, but it wasn't.

    If you want to see me then you gotta be here Monday through Wednesday nights and and the occasional Saturday mornings.....You get to see me do what I do best and dread the worst catering to others.

    Bathroom sink sensors are very sensitive. Don't button up near the sink. If the sink starts, drop what you are doing and wash, you won't get them started again.

    Very extensive selection of tequilas which are extremely delicious. Be sure to try the extra anejos tequilas. The food is top notch as well.

    While the drinks are on par, the food leaves something to be desired. Have a margarita if you're enjoying P St or 14th, but opt for dinner elsewhere.

    Not like the one on the Hill. Seems like it's trying to be fancy because it's in Dupont or something. Get chips and salsa because they are free. Also the prickly pear margarita is yummy

    The cilantro-marinated skirt steak w/ a morita quemada salsa will certainly hike up your skirt, or whatever else you happen to be wearing at TC. Read more

    Great experience! Friendly staff, terrific drinks/food (guac rocks). Nice addition to a diverse neighborhood.. Definitely will be back!

    i think it would be helpful if the servers started off with what is not available instead of making patrons run through two items that are no available.

    Eh. It was not packed but drinks were not brought out. Ended up going to the bar-they weren't on the check either so they were never even rung in. Disappointing.

    Waitress's again rude. 1-she didn't greet us for 10 min. 2- she had no recommendations for us. 3-very abrasive and is rolling her eyes at me while I type this. All because I don't eat bacon-right

    Dead fly in food. Horrible service. Manager didn't even apologize nor did the waiter. Never come back here again. Stay away unless you want insects in your food.

    The Ahi Tuna Ceviche is wonderful. Great guacamole and vegetable fajitas, too. Nice ambiance & super attentive service. Muy bueno!

    Only has half the menu from the Hill location, and no pitchers. Patio is big but not much shade to be had on hot summer afternoons.

    First and only time here, found a cooked, dead fly in my food and all the manager did was take my plate away without offering a replacement...worst service ever.

    The only ingredient on the menu is "bland". This was our second visit, hoping it had improved from the first. It was possibly worse.

    I want to rip off my ears from the constant screaming of babies here. It also is extremely overpriced and the staff completely clueless.

    The chips are think amd crispy, not greasy. The salsa is delicious and fresh, not to spicy hot. 9/10

    Patio is so pleasant. Delicious food, very reasonable. Really great for groups -- they're happy to do individual checks!

    Totally underwhelming. I'd rather pay more for better and bigger portions than do so-so food attempting to be better than it is.

    Food was great. Came fast. Drinks were good. Took forever. Waitress-- otherwise occupied. Service is a problem.

    My 3rd time here and I still don't know why I return. Great location but everytime is disappointing. TERRIBLE and overprice food.

    Quite honestly, one of the worst restaurants in the neighborhood. Terrible service, managers who don't care, and awful food (which I sent back)

    So-so food and service. Two person tables are way too small. The salsa was the only thing that I really enjoyed.

    Well, another lackluster place to eat. Welcome to the neighborhood, you'll fit right in. (e.g. Rice tastes like 99 cent spanish package)

    Food is pretty good. A little over priced. The happy hour specials are worth comming back for.

    Terrible service, terrible margaritas, mediocre tacos, but the two kinds of Shiner on tap make me happy

    Not even close to as good as the Capitol Hill location. Frozen margs are still the best, though.

    Do get the guacamole, do not get the chicken enchiladas. There was zero flavor.

    It doesn't hold a candle to the Capitol hill location but better than the sh**hole that is el Centro on 14th

    Way overpriced! Go to Lauriol Plaza on 18th Street or only order from the appetizer menu.

    How do you dare to call that disgusting nacho cheese "queso fundido" 7eleven's cheese is way better and cheaper.

    No no no.... What a disappointment. Go next door and buy a cold pre-made quesadilla. Better.
