  • The food is very good. The frozen margaritas are the bomb !
  • Columbian Empanadas are "muy bueno" !!
  • The house pico is great and the blackberry margarita is well done
  • Shame on you Los Cuates #ALX. I ordered 3 carnitas tacos to go, and they gave me some kind of meat tacos instead, and poorly served. I noticed once I got back home, so double check before you leave.
  • They say there may be bone in the chicken on the menu and they are right. Overall no one in our party liked their food. Server kept forgetting things too.
  • Love tacos al carbon w/beef and blackberry margaritas
  • Amazing food and friendly staff. I highly recommend the saffron chicken (pollo reynosa) and the cheesecake chimichanga
  • Stuff foof margharita
  • My favorite Mexican restaurant in Alexandria
  • Get the freshly made guac!
  • Favorite Mexican place in old town. I always get the Chicken Tortilla Soup, it hits the spot. The margaritas are pretty solid too. The table chips and salsa are great and the service is very attentive
  • Best Mex food! The queso is great, the salsa is homemade pico
  • Skirt Steak fajitas are outstanding.
