We love the LA Style crispy tacos here. This is a very family friendly restaurant, not too big, and if you get there early, there is some limited eating under their awning on the main street of Del Ray in Alexandria. Rest of the food is pretty standard fare, but these tacos (and we are from So Cal) really are like back home. Crunchy with lots of good shredded beef is what we like, with the usual salady toppings. Their salsa is really good (mild) and yummy, so ask them to bring you two of the little cups of it. I guarantee you will use them both up. More personal than their other venue in Arlington, this is a great place for a casual meet and eat for not too much and then you can stroll down the Del Ray main street after eating. Really great neighborhood.

We have been here a number of times and always find something to enjoy at this non-pretentious little place. The specials are often imaginative and the chips and salsa good. Service is quick. Try the duck tacos.

My sister and her husband live in Alexandria and this is one of their favorite places. The location is on Mt. Vernon Ave. Now we know why. Thanks Binky! Lunch was the time of our visit. Mrs. had a fish taco and a duck taco. She was impressed with taste, freshness & presentation (We live in New Mexico!). Mr. feasted on a huge chicken burrito al arriba with a good, peppery green chile sauce. The house salsa was tasty and not too hot. The guacamole was just perfect. The place is cheery and colorfully decorated. The staff and waitress were warm and and welcoming. If you want real, authentic Mexican food, you're really going to enjoy this place. For 4 of us the cost was $65 with a 15% tip.

This place is a mainstay for the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria. The food is awesome and the margaritas top notch. They make their own lime juice, no commercial mixes used here. It is small and busy, so be patient as everyone ends up having a great meal. The tacos are the best in the area = people love the fish tacos, and I go for the LA style crispy tacos. The chips and salsa are very addicting. They are vegitarian friendly too!

Went to Taqueria Pablano for the first time, later on a Friday night. The place was still bustling, which may have lead to our one issue. To check in and get our group on a list, I had to wave down a server. No sign in, just people standing in the small foyer and on the sidewalk. After getting on the list, we were told we would have about a 15 minute wait. After about 30 minutes and seeing others seated prior, to include walk-ups, I again approached a server and inquired. Miraculously our table was ready, at that moment. This issue past, the food was very good. The portions were just right. The prices were appropriate for the area and servings. The house margarita was very tasty and not to sweet. All things considered, the one issue was overshadowed by the food and follow on service. Will most likely return.
