Stopped here for dinner before a show at the Howard Theater. Service was fast. Colorful decor. Great food. Prices are normal for a Georgetown restaurant. You won't get a huge burrito for $6 but the food was very good and I would definitely return here.

I was hesitant to try Don Lobos after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor but my family was set on this restaurant, which was within walking distance of our hotel. Well, my burrito was so fantastic that I ordered a second meal! The service wasn't bad - it wasn't stellar - but the food was served fast and I had... More

My two friends and I came in for dinner and drinks. The restaurant was obviously busy at it was Cinco de Mayo. Our waiter was Rosie and she was unhelpful, unfriendly, forgot our order and messed up our checks. First off, we ordered one pitcher of margaritas for the table; one friend ordered tacos, one ordered fajitas and I ordered... More

After a couple of hours shopping in Georgetown we were heading back to our hotel knowing we needed some dinner. Passed by this, and thought "why not". Good choice! In spite of what some other reviews have said, the service was prompt and we absolutely received corn chips and dip while we were waiting for the rest of our meal.... More

Unfortunately not a great experience very expensive for what you get. No complain about the service, but the food quality and portion did not meet even one star. I don't like to give bad reviews, but I'm not recommending this restaurant

If you find yourself wandering around Georgetown and you want to get a lunch or a snack, that's the place :) The place has two tables close to the window that are perfect for people watch and enjoy some sun. The food is very good and the staff is nice. I especially enjoyed the mango margarita, which seemed to be... More

Small tiny restaurant. Very friendly staff. Looks a bit unhygienic but I think it's ok. You get some fingerfood when you are seated. Food was descent presented and not too expensive.

We visited here as we were staying just around the corner in Georgetown. The food we had was very good. The service could have been a little better, the waiter was bit offhand. Although it seemed popular better customer service would lift it another notch.
