OK - so you've read the other reviews and you know it's tucked next to a gas station and car wash. So you will see local workmen stream in and out and wonder why it has such a faithful clientele. The owner takes his business seriously and keeps a pretty close eye on everything that goes on.
We moved up from South Texas and spent years going through every Mexican and Tex-Mex joint in Maryland, Virginia and DC and this is hands down the best. The chicken tostadas, for example, are simple and done perfectly. The ingredients are good and each item is authentically done. Flautas, Tortas...everything is done the way it should be.
The dining experience is not really posh, as you kind of sit among racks of wine (they are also a wine store), but once you get the pico, hot sauces, jalapenos etc. loaded up, you sit down and are pretty focused on the food.
Really a great find, and not to be missed if you are up at Rio or driving out 270 in the Gaithersburg area.
