This is one of the best places I have been to in DC. It is quick, causal service but the food is amazing. I go here every week for lunch!

Really good. Super friendly staff and yummy food. We had tamales, pupusas, and the chicken sandwich. Everything was very good. This is an excellent place with kids—lots of kid friendly items. The price point was a welcomed surprise.
