“Fajita Republic was packed so we went to the El Dinaminte”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Went to eat at the Fajita Republic, we waited for 1/2 hour for a table to open up. The disappointing thing was half of the tables were empty with reservation cards on them. These tables were empty the whole time we were waiting. Don't go there unless you have a reservation.

When the wait was unbearable we went to their sister restaurant. The food and service there were great. We had the Lava pot beef and chicken. This was very good, highly recommend it. The price is on the high side but the atmosphere and food were great.

“Average food, overpriced margaritas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

The title says it all. You'd be better served finding a street vendor, grabbing a cerveza at a bodega, and heading for the beach.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

Really enjoyed their sizzling fajitas, and sangria. I have been there 3 times over the past 2 years and have had to wait once. The service is OK, but I enjoy the location and the food, so I'm willing to forgive some less than perfect service.

“Tourist trap. Go somewhere better.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

Do NOT drink the margaritas. They must use racilla instead of tequilla. You'll get a major headache.
