This is a local gem--we go here often and I realize I have never taken the time to let others know how great it is. I admit my husband always orders the same thing, the tostada--which we call "lettuce pile" which has a tangy guacamole...More

Fresh guac, fish tacos, busy family setting, super friendly owner/staff, fresh squeezed OJ, margueritas. We travel from Niagara to friends in DC a couple times a year. Taqeria is always a destination.

We have been to this restaurant probably 50 times. Food is excellent, service great. Highly recommend the margaritas. Certainly more expensive than district taco, but worth it if you're looking for a sitdown experience.

This is a great restaurant if you are searching for authentic Mexican food, more the Baja variety. Great fish tacos, duck, guacamole, rice, and beans. A real local find.

Had beef taco and beef and bean burrito. We live near the Mexican border so normally get very real Mexican food so were pleasantly surprised by the authentic food here.
