Great staff, food and drinks. One of our favorite restaurants. Great tacos. Try the Shrimp or Fish Tacos. Make sure to ask for the habanaro sauce.
The fish tacos are the standout here. Until recently, you couldn't find them elsewhere in Northern Virginia. They're fairly similar to the fish tacos you find in the San Diego area. The L.A. style tacos with pork and the duck carnitas also are very tasty. The margaritas are excellent and don't seem to be made with a mix. This is... More
You won't find a better meal for under $15 in Alexandria. If this is your first time here there are two musts at Taqueria del Poblano: 1) Tacos al Carbon, 2) the house margarita. The tacos al carbon come with perfectly grilled steak, chicken, or shrimp and grilled peppers, onions, 'n cheese for a perfect smokey grilled soft taco. The... More
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... More
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... More
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... More
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... More
I've been eating at Taqueria Poblano (Del Ray location) ever since they opened many years ago. The food and service are consistently excellent. I had my first introduction to fish tacos here, and now I consider them the gold standard. To those not familiar with fish tacos, they may sound unappealing. However, if you like mild fish and you like... More
