If you're okay with American-Mex, this restaurant is for you. I don't mind that the food isn't authentic - it is what it is. Fresh chips, decent tortillas, fast service, and decent prices. What it isn't is authentic or particularly inspiring. That said, the price point is good, the kids'll eat the American-style Mex, and we all leave feeling okay about the meal.

After moving into the American University dorms last weekend, we stopped to enjoy a meal here. The chips and salsa are wonderful!Light crispy chips, creative, fresh salsa and lots of refills!
Our meals were delicious, we even watched them make our tortillas in their special machine. Our server was friendly and efficient. We will definitely be back.

We dd a quick dinner before the movies and found this place excellent again. Very nice free chips and salsa to start and bottomless sodas . We saw some good looking margaritas going round but we weren't in the mood for booze. I ordered the beef fajitas/ baby backed ribs combo. I never have been asked how I want my beef cooked when having fajitas. When it came it was tender and slightly pink - perfect melt in the mouth stuff! The ribs were superb - nicely marinated and meat falling off the bone. This place was awesome for a family restaurant and reasonably priced (40 bucks for two). I am keen to go back as there is some ordinary expensive Mexican out there in DC.

We asked our tour bus driver what restaurants he recommended and this was on the top of his list, LOVED IT!!! Food was amazing and service was even better. Even the women's bathroom was just adorable! I was there with my parents and boyfriend, we all tried something different and each of us loved our meals. It's right off the red line tenleytown metro stop, you have to try it if you are in DC!

Good, traditional Mexican food. Always crowded and packed with AU undergrads, alums, and other bums. Great place for the Bethesda/Spring valley tweens to congregate and be seen before their bedtime. Lacks the edge necessary for any great food, but is safe enough for Mommy and Daddy to bring the children, knock back a beer, drain a martini, and feel like they went to some exotic place in the middle of the northwestern DC suburban sprawl. Try the 40 oz dos equis, chips and cheese dip, and enchiladas.
