This is not a Tex-Mex restaurant. It is a Mexican restaurant. It is not trendy or cute. It is bare-bones. Nothing but the most tasty, delicious home-cooked food is served here. I've eaten a wide variety off the extensive menu and never had anything that wasn't delicious. The kitchen is run by a couple of chefs who have been with the place a long time. This is not fancy food or gourmet food. It is just simply GREAT home-cooking-style food.

I particularly recommend the rancho consomme soup and the cerviche. But, as I said, everything I've ever had here has been delicious, and I've probably eaten there about 25 times over the last few years.

Popped in for a quick lunch, we were hungry so anything would have been good. Food was solid not special. I had the beef torta which was only ok - the tortillas were better. Service was average - my wife got the wrong thing but ate it anyway.

The most authentic Mexican food in D.C. Love the Mexican chocolate drink. Still was expecting more from the food, but it does me well when I crave Mexican food.
