Came here on a date night with bf. Margaritas were delicious- however a little too small for the price they were asking. Love the LA style tacos. I wouldn't say it was the best Mexican food in the area I've tasted. Definitely could find cheaper. BUT doesn't mean it wasn't good! A relaxed, fun environment and our server was wonderful.... More

When we lived in South Arlington (8 years ago)we would take the quick drive down to the town of Del Rey for a taste of So Cal Mexican. The crispy tacos and Margaritas are the stars of the menu. The crispy beef, chicken and pork are all outstanding. Crispy deep fried shells filled with succulent seasoned meats piled high with... More

We were in Akexandria for our DC vacation and my cousin , who lives in Alexandria, recommended this restaurant. I am sure we would never have discovered it without him. The food was so fresh, and just delicious. The service was fast and friendly and the prices were good and the portions were huge. It advertises the best Margaritas in... More

If you are looking for a delicious, cheap dinner you've come to the right place. It looks like a hole in the wall on the outside but the food is to die for. I always get the shrimp taco, duck taco, and taquitos. Staff is always attentive and it is in a super cute town. Margaritas are delicious too! It... More

Great - no outstanding - margeritas plus they give you a choice of salt or no salt. I haven't had a margerita so good in years. I'm told they are home made no mix and I can believe it. The food was super too, our table had a mix of enchiladas and tacos which were very good, but then you... More

I live nearby and visit Taqueria Poblano one every few months. They have great tacos. I'm usually not a hard shell taco person, but the shells here are superb. Really do give them a try. They must make them in-house. Cold mexican beer and the service is good. Lots of people in and out of the place all the time.... More

Taqueria Poblano in the Del Ray section of Alexandria is a small, comfortable, Mexican restaurant that serves consistently good food. Additionally, they craft DC's best, truly amazing, Margaritas! Taqueria Poblano is our go to Mexican spot in Alexandria VA. We always try to get there early to avoid a wait.

This is a perfect spot for lunch in Arlington. The food is wonderful, the service is attentive and the decor is adorable. I had the chicken tostada and took half home for dinner! I will definitely be returning...
