Enjoyed a tasty meal here. The enchiladas were delicious and the chips and salsa were very fresh and delicious. Service was quick and attentive. Nice location in Georgetown.

No surprises although the mole sauce was better than most. Small restaurant. Obligatory soccer game on the t.v.

Stopped here for dinner before a show at the Howard Theater. Service was fast. Colorful decor. Great food. Prices are normal for a Georgetown restaurant. You won't get a huge burrito for $6 but the food was very good and I would definitely return here.

Unfortunately not a great experience very expensive for what you get. No complain about the service, but the food quality and portion did not meet even one star. I don't like to give bad reviews, but I'm not recommending this restaurant
