When visiting DC my wife and I always stay at the Hampton Inn Fairfax. This restaurant is within walking distance. The food and service has always been great. We will be back!

I'm not a fan after a couple visits. It's average Mexican food, not fast, not good service, not cheap, not that clean. The flavors aren't even that original...everything tastes pretty much the same.
