I come here for the tacos - they are outstanding. The ambiance is nice and they have outdoor seating. The best thing on the menu are the tacos. Delish!

Food was ok. Had fajitas, cheese quesadillas and some drinks. Chips and salsa was good, its not pico de gallo as some mexican joints serve as salsa. Service was slow, not sure if they had enough wait staff with the oitside open.

Great food, wine, and service. The salsa itself is worth the trip. We ate inside but lots of outdoor seating as well. Decor is simple but pleasant. Serving staff were attentive and everyone helped out so you were never left looking for your server.

My wife is a Mexican food fanatic and we have been trying different places in NOVA. Guajillos impressed both of us. Cool interior and excellent service from the two servers. We started with fresh chips and great salsa, and really good house margaritas. I had...More

Service, food and drinks were fantastic. The location is in a strip mall, don't let this sway you. You'll be wonderfully surprised. Highly recommend!

Love the food, the margaritas and the people. The mole is very good, especially the Tres Moles when they have it. The ceviche is a great appetizer and very generous portion. Highly recommend the Horni Granma margarita!
