Great restaurant for large groups. The beef fajitas and cheese quesadillas were very tasty. The cooked plantains were to die for. The drinks including the margaritas where also good. The location is conveniently close to the metro.

I had dinner with high school classmates (IPS '79) on Friday evening. It was absolutely delightful. Chips and salsa kept coming to the table -- would have been much better if the chips were not overcooked (almost burned). The salsa, though, was perfect -- just...More
