  • Michelle B.The fish tacos are incredible.

  • Lora N.They really need a curtain for the entryway in the winter. The cold air that blasts through each time the door opens is nearly unbearable, even when seated on the opposite side

  • KrisContrary to most tips, we had an excellent dinner. Both the shrimp and veggie tacos were delicious; service was excellent. Will be back again!

  • Pierrette H.Go for Happy Hour to get the best bang for the buck! The Mexican Street Corn is the BEST thing on the menu!

  • Morgan M.Great service and amazing atmosphere on the roof. But food is okay at best. Can not find good Mexican food in this city.

  • Nikita C.Например, Лучший бар в Вашингтоне

  • Johanna E.The sangria was very mediocre. The street corn was delicious. Roof top is a nice summer atmosphere.

    55555 by Johanna E.

  • Bryant G.Your reservation on open table does not count for the roof top... FYI

  • Anna F.WARNING: DO NOT COME HERE. Service was terrible. Food was ok. Took forever to get anything and practically had to wait on ourselves. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

  • Rachel C.They make the tacos different every single time so be specific with what you want on them.

    55555 by Rachel C.

  • Roman J.The Mexican street corn was the closest you will get to Mexico in DC.

    55555 by Roman J.

  • Stan O.Nothing impressive about the food or drink.

    22222 by Stan O.

  • Tim A.The quesadillas were surprisingly good. Drinks are good too.

    55555 by Tim A.

  • Stephanie B.Nice atmosphere outside. Get the tacos. Delicious and big and only $4 each!

    55555 by Stephanie B.

  • DLMThe food was totally average and nothing to praise but the prices are reasonable. The host staff has a lot to learn about greeting you when you arrive and thanking you for your patronage.

  • Amanda A.I may be bias, being from Southern California, but so far the chips are stale and the salsa has almost no flavor. Luckily you can buy a bucket of Tecate in cans!

    33333 by Amanda A.

  • Alyssa K.Rooftop is awesome; disagree with others about the food. It's not TexMex (heated up refried beans and queso from a jar) - the tacos are much more like Baja or southern California - fresh and very good

    55555 by Alyssa K.

  • Ali O.Service was slow, inside was quite loud, food was terrible, which is a shame because they have a great location. Until they refresh their kitchen, I would only go for the rooftop.

    33333 by Ali O.

  • Cheikh R.I had the shrimp quesidilla at the bar, it was decent, service was good, I'll be back to try the drinks!

    33333 by Cheikh R.

  • Bruce J.Let's be honest: the chips and salsa have got to be the worse I ever had. How do you screw up that.. Flavorless salsa and saltless, stale chips.

  • Kimberly A.Taco Tuesdays is the best! Shrimp, Baja Fish & Carne Asada for $3 each are a great deal! Wash it down with a CoronaRita!
