This is the BEST tex-mex food in the city. The swirl margaritas are amazing and the portions of food are huge. My husband and I always split the Rio Grande fajitas. There is always plenty left over to bring home.

Great Place!! Good food. Good decor (maybe a bit overdone). The Queso is great, used to have lunch there a lot with the Kennedy Center Crowd. We'd drink pitchers of margharitas.

Prices are fair, you always get a big portion.
