Great Mexican food near the Library of Congress

Went here for lunch and really enjoyed the food. The guacamole was tasty and so were the quesadillas and enchiladas. Would recommend.

Amazing for the food, the price, the quality of the drink. Do not ask corona here but Just a negra modelo. My favourite place here was chicken quesadilla with queso, sour cream, avocado: I could die for it.

good prices, decent food- its exactly what you would expect when you walk in the door. The fajitas were really well done, although they could give you a little more cheese/guac etc on the side. Excellent chips and salsa.

Impromtu visit because my husband & I had been searching for good fajita's (close to home), to no avail...what we thought might be a "hole in the wall" turned into a great romantic dining experience. The combination chicken & steak was well seasoned, sizzling hot!! The best guacomole i've ever had... you could eat it with a spoon! Quesadillas were... More

The prices are right for a decent dinner. The chimichanga was good, but the black bean burrito was mediocre. It was not busy at all, so food was quick.

Have been here many times over the course of the past decade. Always a solid and enjoyable lunch spot. The waiters are friendly and the service is excellent. Meals are very good and you can depend on getting there, having lunch and returning to work within the hour. Love La Lomita Dos!

This place is by far a definite over-looker by many. I was craving Mexican food after watching an episode of Man vs. Food. I Googled Mexican restaurants near me and this place popped up. Only 5 minutes from my house....I honestly wasn't expecting much. I ordered the beef nachos and chicken fajita. Let me say that this place serves GOOD... More

We wouldn't normally choose Mexican to eat, but it is close to our Hotel (Capitol Hill Hotel). We read the mixed reviews and wondered what we would get. The service was very good, seated quickly, water at our table and a bowl of tortilla chips and salsa. We tried both the sangria and standard margarita (both half pitchers). They were... More

La Lomita Dos, about three blocks from the Capitol, is a local favorite, especially for families with children. It has thrived for decades. The food is tasty (but filling) and reasonably priced. There is quite a variety typical Mexican food, with beef, chicken, shrimp, and vegetarian as the basis. It is a small restaurant, but festively decorated. of Mexican beers... More

Nothing fancy here. This place has been around longer than I can remember. The family that owns the joint is very friendly and want you to enjoy your meal. I always do.
