“Great food, great deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

On my cool 23 year old niece's advice I had lunch with her on the outdoor patio of this great little Mexican place. We both had delicious chicken taco salads which were immense and satisfying! Chicken was grilled juicy and tender. Prices extremely reasonable and a very pleasant outdoor setting. My niece is a DC transplant from Florida and says it's hard to find good Mexican food in DC - this place hits the spot!

“Margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

A coworker asked us to meet her for lunch here on her last day as a farewell meal. The food was great and the margarita pitchers were generous. I ended up having to drive a coworker back to the office because the waitress was too helpful in refilling her glass. We sat inside for the AC but the outside sitting area had plenty of umbrellas for shade and was pretty full. The meal was also a good value.

“expensive bad food, nice place to sit outside”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

terrible, generic 'mexican' - sloppy beans, pasty guacamole, overcooked torillas, uninteresting spicing - and expensive: despite its nice outdoor seating, I won't be going back. I

“Bad Mexican at a higher price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

The best thing about La Loma is its outdoor seating right on Mass Ave near the Capitol. Other than that, the food is terrible. Average Mexican at very best. The taco salad was very bland and the quesadillas were too greasy to even eat. The queso got cold and hard in minutes. It is not worth it!

“great happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is a great place to enjoy a happy hour with friends/family - a few drinks and some good food - it's a nice find. We were there during a low volume afternoon - so the service was great. It's far from fancy which is part of it's charm. I recommend !!!!
