I promised myself I wouldn't eat at the same place more than once on our recent trip because I wanted to try everything from everywhere in Richmond. Well, that didn't go down as planned - we ended up visiting DLB 3 times in 6 days!!!! Very reasonably priced, so so SO delicious and quick too! This places caters for all... More

I was looking for something to eat and both the bookstore and Planet 9 recommended don't Look Back tacos. I am so glad they did. It is a small place with small tables. I choose to sit at the bar. The service was fast and efficient. I had a glass of water right after sitting down and had placed my... More

A small restaurant but nice atmosphere with a sitting nook, couch and TV toward the rear. When the server found out it was my first time, she emphasized homemade tortillas, their large tequila selection as well as large portions. I got the nachos which were deliciously authentic Mexican and, indeed, a large portion. I plan to go back for dinner... More

You choose your filling, you choose your style, you choose your tortilla type. Truly a customized taco experience! And if you like tequila, be sure to try any of their infused tequilas to go with your tacos. Good chips and salsa and guacamole too.

We had lunch there at a super busy holiday afternoon. Only one server for the whole place. He was as efficient as he could be. We weren't in a hurry and had heard the food was great. Food *was* great and well priced. We loved the chips, salsa, and guacamole . We liked carnitas and chicken tacos. Two is plenty... More

Local fan restaurant with decent food, but very loud music and louder conversation. Friendly attentive staff. Food was OK, but not worth a trip back.
