Went to eat at this restaurant and the food was flavorful and tasty! The chips right down to the taco shells was homemade. You can taste the difference!

I love this place because they have caipirinhas! They are so good here too! Have them made with vodka, sugar, and lime. Oh so refreshing! They have a great happy hour, and good food.

Sometimes you hate to post great reviews because it will bring too many people to a go-to restaurant. We truly enjoy the wonderful affordable Mexican food, great friendly service and the best margaritas in the DC area. Please don't go there to often, it's a small place and I don't want you to make me wait for a seat!

Taqueria Poblano looks tiny from the outside, and to be sure, it's pretty small on the inside, but the food is as good as larger places. My wife and I eat there for lunch every few weeks and and never had a bad meal. Margaritas are great as are the draft beers they rotate. Basic Mexican dishes have been uniformly... More

We stopped in for an early dinner, around Five PM. The outside patio tables were taken so inside we went. There are maybe seven tables and a few seats at the bar. So be prepared. The tortilla chips and salsa were outstanding. Marguerites were very good as was the house limeade. I had the Beef Short Rib special with vegetables... More

Came here on a date night with bf. Margaritas were delicious- however a little too small for the price they were asking. Love the LA style tacos. I wouldn't say it was the best Mexican food in the area I've tasted. Definitely could find cheaper. BUT doesn't mean it wasn't good! A relaxed, fun environment and our server was wonderful.... More

When we lived in South Arlington (8 years ago)we would take the quick drive down to the town of Del Rey for a taste of So Cal Mexican. The crispy tacos and Margaritas are the stars of the menu. The crispy beef, chicken and pork are all outstanding. Crispy deep fried shells filled with succulent seasoned meats piled high with... More

We were in Akexandria for our DC vacation and my cousin , who lives in Alexandria, recommended this restaurant. I am sure we would never have discovered it without him. The food was so fresh, and just delicious. The service was fast and friendly and the prices were good and the portions were huge. It advertises the best Margaritas in... More

If you are looking for a delicious, cheap dinner you've come to the right place. It looks like a hole in the wall on the outside but the food is to die for. I always get the shrimp taco, duck taco, and taquitos. Staff is always attentive and it is in a super cute town. Margaritas are delicious too! It... More

Great - no outstanding - margeritas plus they give you a choice of salt or no salt. I haven't had a margerita so good in years. I'm told they are home made no mix and I can believe it. The food was super too, our table had a mix of enchiladas and tacos which were very good, but then you... More
