We had steak - best most delicious prepared perfectly. Super juice. The shrimp fajitas was beyond delicious. We had nachos for the appetizer which were incredible and a pitcher of hurricane margaritas that was not only delicious but just the right amount of alcohol. Anyone...visiting or living in D.C. has to stop by and enjoy some this awesome mexican cuisine.More

We had a pitcher of Margaritas, and 3 delicious dinners. The atmosphere was quite pleasant and easy to have a conversation. The meals were tasty. The chips and salsa were crisp and fresh. The service was a bit slow but we wanted to have a...long conversation so it was not an issue. Glad we went.More

Had brunch there today and further confirmed why we'd never tried it before even though it's been in the neighborhood forever. Located on the corner of Connecticut and Ordway it does have one superb feature: the very pleasant raised outdoor terrace with views of the...busy intersection, the best outdoor space on the block. Maybe ok for a so so drink given the nice terrace (and the fresh, thin chips and salsa) but not for food. I had the chicken tacos which were totally flavorless with lukewarm rice and beans, my partner had the set brunch with bottomless bloody Mary's and sausage scrambled eggs, a bit more taste than the tacos but nothing you'd order a second time. There was supposed to be fruit salad with the set but they didn't bring it. Would have given the dessert a try, except I'd never seen a more unattractive dessert menu with the worst quality unappetizing photos (and no prices). Service was haphazard even with few customers around - they almost took the wrong order and then brought the wrong bill totaling twice the amount - although rectified quickly, the whole experience is not one that'd encourage a return visit. Giving a three star rating in consideration of the terrace seating.More

I used to come to this restaurant all the time when I lived in the neighborhood. Now I have to visit whenever I'm in town. The restaurant changed names (used to be "Alero's") but the food and service are basically the same. The frozen margaritas...are delicious! And the patio and tiny balcony are great for people-watching.More

Prices are up - food quality is not. Best bets: Taquitos Vera Cruz, Tacos, Fajitas, both Ceviche dishes. Mix with a pitcher of Margaritas..... Good outside seating in warmer weather.

The table-side gauc here was AMAZING!!!!! The server we had was so friendly, helpful & efficient. If you're in the area, you HAVE to go in and at least have the gauc table-side!!

Best part of the meal was the free chips and salsa. The food was so disappointing and didn’t seem fresh, especially for being in a higher price range. I had chilaquiles at another restaurant and the comparison is appalling .

Stopped here after going to the zoo and had a quick lunch. Food was okay. Nothing to write home about.

My wife and I love visiting the National Zoo. Whenever we make the trip, we stop to eat at Laredo Mexican restaurant. We know that no matter how much we eat, we will be able to walk it off the rest of the day as...we enjoy God's creatures. It had been a couple of years since dining here, so I was pleasantly surprised to see them offering the latest craze, the weekend all you can eat and drink brunch. Their brunch included sangria and Spanish style tapas. We decided not to opt for the brunch, but instead feasted on a seafood paella and Camarones al Mojo de Ajo. Let me say that the paella portion was enough for two people, which made me happy so I could enjoy plenty of my wife's selection. As for my dish, I was shocked at how big the Camarones (shrimp/langostinos) were. Trust me, my dish completely filled me up, but I had to eat some paella too. We topped this delicious outing off with a bottle of Chardonnay. Okay, so the walk to the zoo from the restaurant was slower than expected, but our bellies were very satiated.More

Would give the Laredo 5 stars if it wasn't as expensive as it is. Hubby and I stopped here after a long day walking around the zoo. Was really handy as it is right across the street from the Metro. The food was excellent, servers...friendly and everything was clean. The cost was on the high side. Would eat here again if we go back to the area.More
