This has been, and continues to be, a great value. Good portions of good Mexican food served by friendly staff in a somewhat worn atmosphere. I will say this, we don't go as much as we used to. The competition in the neighborhood has gone up (Good Eats, for instance, is across the street) while at the same time we started seeing six legged guests too often. The owner has tried other ventures around DC without the same success - they may be losing focus on their golden egg.

Comfy, friendly, neighborhood spot for good tex-mex and good company. Small space so be prepared to brush elbows with your neighbors, but know your server will never be far away.

La Lomita is a favorite of ours, known mostly to locals, even though we don't live on Cap Hill. It's a tiny, brightly painted place, service is prompt and friendly, food is good (sometimes even great). It's a hidden jewel--replete with Christmas lites (year round--look for the ones still in the box over the kitchen door!), ranchera music, slightly faded pinatas everywhere, and of course cheap (but good) margaritas. Spilt a pitcher with your date--How great is that? It's cool to walk in and feel at home, greeted with warm welcome everytime we've ever been.

This is as close to authentic Mexican food as you can get in the DC area. Delicious enchiladas, burritos, and chimichangas--I find that I don't miss my favorite dive back home in Los Angeles as much when I eat here.

Quasi-Mexican food and good margaritas? Can't go wrong.
