  • Erica H.Chips and Salsa delicious drinks good

    55555 by Erica H.


  • Michelle F.We ordered an appetizer and then our entrees shortly after and they came out way to fast. Wait til you're ready to eat before your order

  • Irene R.Deliciouuuus!!!! ;)

    55555 by Irene R.


  • StellaMake sure to check you received flour tortillas :)

    33333 by Stella


  • RajeshGo. As a Texan I can vouch this place is the most legit Mexican food in the area. Get the Lucky Horseshoe margarita and special fajitas.

    55555 by Rajesh


  • Edris Q.It seems pricey until you realize that a fajita platter for one easily feeds two and that's coming from a guy with a healthy appetite. You can also ask for extra tortillas at no additional cost!

    55555 by Edris Q.


  • Jessica H.Great cheese and beef enchiladas, but the chicken ones are mediocre. Queso is your basic velveeta. Mojitos are excellent, sangria is syrup-y and gross.

    55555 by Jessica H.


  • Eric G.Yowza, the swirl is quite punchy, as someone said. Loved it and it came in a reasonable size (8-10oz)

    55555 by Eric G.


  • Gary L.Chicken fajitas were horrible! They were supposed to be their speciality as well. Way overpriced; I would recommend going someplace else.

  • Lydia K.$2 off all "on the rocks" margaritas until 6:30!

    33333 by Lydia K.

    55555 by Michela


  • hadolarevamped menu has a spicy guac and decent skinny margaritas.

    55555 by hadola


  • Morgan H.sit on the patio if you want decent service during happy hour, which is the only time it's worth it since this place is overpriced. Our waiter was awesome and gave us a free round of margs

    55555 by Morgan H.


  • Doug C.The sangria is awful. Stick with beer.

    22222 by Doug C.


  • Todd B.Pro tip: get Mexican food some where else.

    55555 by Todd B.


  • RebeccaOne of the loudest restaurants in the metro DC area. Be prepared.

    55555 by Rebecca


  • Stephen M.They went all Tex Mex. Not bad for the area. Go with Juanita's platter.

    33333 by Stephen M.

    55555 by Svetlana P.

    55555 by Spicy Candy DC (.

    55555 by Jonathan M.


  • Missy H.The Baja Gold sounds funky but it's delicious. Try it with Negro Modelo

    55555 by Missy H.


  • Niku A.The swirl margarita is a punch in the face. Get the strawberry margarita if you want something a lil less intense.

    55555 by Niku A.


  • Acórea S.Fantastic restaurant...and their margarita is the best! Check out the "Juarez" dish!

    55555 by Acórea S.
