2:00 on a Thursday afternoon, the place was nearly empty, servers standing around everywhere, and I STILL couldn't get decent service -- from start to finish. Had to flag down someone and ask for every little thing throughout the visit, including napkins and drink refills....More

It's not real Tex-Mex but has some pretty good choices of food. If you're here from Texas you'll be disappointed. After a while it works out. Servers are good. Parking at Hoffman is poor.

My boyfriend and I dined here, a few weeks ago, and have visited this location several times, over the years. The restaurant has consistently provided great customer service and a good dining experience. We usually order the taco salad with ground beef and the carnitas...More

The restaurant's location is excellent: just minutes from the Eisenhower metro station and it's adjacent to an AMC movie theater. The service is friendly and fast. We received complementary chips and salsa almost immediately after being seated and our drinks and food were served soon...More
