  • Marco HStay away if you know Mexican food. The place is amazingly sloppy, some molcajetes are missing a leg or two so they dance all over the table. That's just the start... not coming back.

  • MaxNicely decorated. Try the hand-made tacos all kind. Camarones Al Mojo De Ajo... is to die for! Classic hand made, in your face Guacamole. A strong selection of Mezcal. Kids frendly.

  • Jastine K.Grasshopper tacos are worth sampling- was told the grasshoppers are imported from Oaxaca and marinated in tequila. My top recommendation though would still be the lechon quesadilla. Very delicious!

  • Washington PostDetails stack up: The oiled rice alongside that chicken is some of the best around, and the bartender is conversant enough with his spirits to suggest the perfect tequila -- for dessert.

    55555 by Washington Post

  • Patrick M.The guacamole is superb, with I believe green bell pepper and quest fresco cheese on top. The mezcal and other tapas are very good too, including the chalupas with duck… (3 of 4 petals via Fondu)
