Best Mexican in this Area

This is the best authentic Mexican food in this area. Everything from the tortilla chips to the actual tortillas are homemade. Best sangria I have ever had with lots of fresh fruit. During better weather, the outdoor eating pavilion is a great gathering spot, especially for larger parties.

When the kids were little we ate here all the time. But now that my "baby" is of legal age, I wasn't sure if this was a good restaurant choice for a low-key weeknight birthday in February, but I went along anyway. Let me just say: margaritas and a giant sombrero were the highlights of the evening. My son liked... More

Our favorite Mexican comfort food restaurant! We often stop here on the way home from work because it is located near the Silver Spring metro and where we park. We often order the quesadillas and enchilladas. The shrimp quesadillas are wonderful. They have a generous amount of shrimp which is very tender and delicious everytime! The enchilladas are very well... More

Thoroughly enjoyed every meal at both the SS and Rockville locations. The owner is great and the staff are always attentive and friendly. My children love the quesadillas and fried ice cream. I always get a veggie quesadilla or fajita dish plus tostada nachos. Nice spot for cinco de mayo too.

This restaurant not only has good food, but also has an area where private parties can be held. The one I went to was very well served. There was a head server and servers only for the party. The food was really good, as they had three choices of main dishes, but what was incredible was the appetizers. They had... More

I love this place. Been going for 20 + years. Nothing fancy. Just good food, and friendly service. Large covered and heated outside dining. Fajitas, grilled fish, enchiladas - all good. And chips and salsa to start. I tend to get 1-2 margaritas up, no ice. They are generously sized and strong, and I float home with a smile.
