I've been coming here for years even when I lived an hour and half away! Great margaritas, queso, guac, fahitas, tacos, salsa and I love their thin fresh chips. Service is always spot on.

I decided to try this place out because I can visit loud Dave and Buster's any day. The music is loud, the hostess made an insulting assumption...at least my server was awesome. Her attention was truly amazing. I ordered the Sizzling Fajita Salad and it was not only not sizzling, but it wasn't even warm. It also lacked a lot of salad veggie basics. I don't think I'll give this place a second shot for food. The margaritas aren't half bad.

“Very good Tex-Mex”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

We stopped here on a Saturday night. The wait was only about 20 minutes for a party of 2. Our waitress provided excellent service and our meals and cocktails were perfect.

Very reasonable prices on menu items. Good choices of combination plates. The Laredo is the best.

I have visited several locations in the state of California. There is no difference in quality compared to Baltimore location. Thumbs up from me. Nice casual place to eat and have a few drinks.

“Great Fresh Mexican Cuisine”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I like a variety of different Mexican styles and this restaurant offers what they refer to as "Fresh Mex." Not too spicy and extremely flavorful. I particularly like their chips and salsa (complementary). The chips are thin and crisp, but sturdy enough to catch a good portion of their very tasty salsa. I've probably eaten through their entire menu as many times as I have visited and find their steak dishes (fajitas, steak, burritos, etc.) particularly good. I have on occasion found their chicken to be a bit salty, but I've also been told I'm sensitive to that taste. They have a corn garnish from which I seriously could make an entire meal. The salads are crisp and flavorful as well - it's not just rabbit food. The value is outstanding and the margaritas come in a variety of flavors. Their happy hour deals are extremely worthwhile - both drinks and appetizers at considerable discounts. I got a large Nachos and a bar drink for all of $10 on one occasion and ended up taking half the nachos home.
If you want the absolutely best service, ask for Sarah (with an "h"). She's attentive and pleasant.
The food is fresh, the tortillas are made on site, and the atmosphere is authentic. It is located in a mall and the patio seating opens to the sometimes noisy mall area. I prefer indoor seats. If you are in the Baltimore-Washington Airport area and like Mexican fare even a little bit, I strongly encourage you to check out this location of the national chain. Even if there is a small wait (it is never very long), stick around. It's worth it.
