We sat outside for brunch and had a nice morning - we got there before it was crowded, so we felt safe eating there. The food was really good and the waitress was also good and responsive to us. I recommend this, as long as you get there early - by the time we left there were people standing in line and it was a little crowded around the host stand. Maybe they could move it to the side so people don't have to congregate near tables and pedestrians don't have to maneuver through the line

This was my first Mexican food experience at DC and definitely Mission at Dupont was the right choice! Their Waffle fries Nachos topped with cream, cheese and guacamole was super yummy almost too irresistible to stop eating. If you are Quesadilla fan like myself, their Quesadilla is a must try, loaded with filling and cheese can easily be shared between two people. If you are hunting for a Friday get together spot to have a couple of drinks, chat, and yummy Mexican food, Mission DuPont will give it all.

Great food! Drinks were okay... bottomless margaritas way better than mimosas (too much orange juice) and you aren’t served in champagne glasses, just these plastic cups like in college. A little disappointed about that. But service was honestly on point!

Very friendly service! We were seated inside quickly where tables were distanced properly. The music was a little loud and my margarita was very sour, but other than that the food was awesome. We had the nachos, sliders, and churro bites and I would definitely recommend it.

I had high expectations for this place but was left highly disappointed. The service was super slow and the food was less than subpar. I had the Al Pastor tacos & the steak tacos. The steak tacos taste like nothing, flavorless, unseasoned and the texture tasted like it was stewed in liquid. We also had chicken tacos at our table which my friend said were very dry and flavorless. I only gave a max of 3 stars in some categories because the margaritas and fried chicken wings Appetizer were the Best items we had. Everyone with us left with alot of their mostly inedible food still on the table. Im sure there are much better tex-mex style places better than this one in DC so please dont waste your time here.

Great food! No complaints there! Wait staff was friendly and helpful. It was my first time there though and I wasn't sure where to go. The "greeter" at the door just watched me walk past and didn't say hi or "greet" me. So I wound up having to walk back outside to greet him which I thought was silly. Also bathroom doors were propped open so when you walked upstairs you had a clear view right into the men's room. Too clear of view. Aside from those, still a pleasant experience and good food! Reasonably priced for the area.

Sat outside due to COVID-19. The service was good and food was delicious. The empanadas were huge and very filling. The drinks have a little too much ice and my only real complaint is they used little plastic cups with printing on it. Obviously they reuse them, since most of the printing was faded on them, so it t gives off the vibe they are old and dirty. Not sure why they use reuse plastic cups.

Loved the new outdoor dining. A man came up to me and my friends while dining and on our way out, one of the waitresses made sure we were okay and offered for one of the hosts to walk us to our destination, which was unnecessary but an appreciated gesture! Good vibes and social distancing, just make sure you bring your own hand sanitizer!

Went to Mission on a Saturday afternoon. Got the nachos and breakfast tostadas. My buddy got the shrimp tacos. No complaints about anything except I don't like a runny yolk, but that was my fault for not asking.
All the seating was outside, which was really great even if it was a muggy summer day.
All in all, I'm looking forward to my next chance to go to eat and drink at Mission Dupont.

Mission has been a saving grace during Covid. With a large outdoor eating area and attentive service, I had appreciated Mission's delicious food and convenient location even more.
