Owners/Mgt was wonderful helping me in my wheelchair and mobility impairment, very accommodating! Tight squeeze to restrooms. It's a local dc restaurant serving mostly authentic Mexican comfort foods, tacos, taquitos, quesadillas, combo platters enchiladas and rellenos. Hand made margarita. They deliver within 1-2mi gtown-Arlington.
My parents and I tried Don Lobos on a whim the first time that my parents were in town. The dining area is small, but the atmosphere was great! The food was delicious and full of flavor.
This was some of the most mediocre Mexican food I have ever had. The Sangria, which the menu says has fruit, did not and was just ok. Nachos came with a small blob of guacamole on one chip, a dollop of sour cream on another, a spoonful of jalapeños on another over a thinly spread layer of refried beans. The only thing evenly spread was the cheese. It was passable. I had the steak fajitas. Steak was not seasoned well and was tough. The dish consisted mainly of onions, and the condiments on the side were very stingy. There was about a tablespoon of what looked and tasted like store bought guacamole, a very small amount of pico de gallo, a little bit of lettuce and a normal portion of rice. No beans. My spouse had the shrimp and crab enchiladas which came with red sauce. He was not impressed. We will not be back.
This place has great food and great service. We're from Austin, Texas with lots of Tex-Mex and interior Mexican food options in our neighborhood. Don Lobos would make our dining rotation back home; the kids loved it too.
This Mexican restaurant was very authentic and their margarita was on point. Fantastic guacamole and the server Olivia really could not have been any better looking after our large group of 20. We had an amazing evening.
Pleasantly surprised with the food, atmosphere, and service. Will be back when feeling like Mexican food in Georgetown.
We arrived and were dressed immediately as it was not busy. They gave us the food quickly after we ordered and it was very good.
We were in DC at the Hirshhorn and decided we wanted Mexican food. We found Don Lobos Mexican Grill on Open Table and made reservations (Early dinner on a weekday - reservations are not necessary. There were 3 other diners when we arrived.) Don Lobos is a very small, laid-back, cozy restaurant with good food. (There is a stairway as you walk in so I think they may have a larger room upstairs). Our server was polite and helpful.
The food was hot and good. The chicken was tender, well trimmed and plentiful. The salsa was different, rather spicy and a bit smoky. The chips were tasty but a bit tough. My husband ordered a thick and crispy Chicken Chimichanga and I had a Garden Burrito with a side of delicious guacamole. My Burrito was full of veggies and drizzled with a delicious green sauce. It was just perfect to accent the vegetables. I was tempted to ask for more!
We will recommend it to our friends but since we do not live nearby, it may be a long time before we visit again.
Welcomed by a kid who knew about the food very well, then we asked the difference between pitcher of margarita and regular and suggested the value for money pitcher. So we did. Had delicious nacho's, taco's and enchilada's. Good food, good service!
Great food served quickly.
I think someone must have called out because they did not have enough servers and our poor waiter was running around like crazy. The food was still very good and when we asked for refills we got them, but we had to flag it down
It wasn't the best Mexican food I have ever had.....what I expected for DC. If you go don't get the margaritas!!
Good authentic Mexican food, pleasant atmosphere, very friendly staff.
Great little Mexican spot! Our food was delicious and the service was great. I loved their salsa which was medium on the hot scale. I do wish they offered a version that was spicier - that is my only complaint.
What a great little mexican gem we found!
