If you like Mexican food, you HAVE to go to MXDC. Great drinks, great service and an interesting twist on quesadillas, serving them open-face pizza-style.

In town, visiting from California & MXDC had great reviews on Open Table & was close Tom our restaurant. Food was great. Service was a bit slow the first night we dined (ate lunch there a few days later) … but others did their best to help out.

First night in DC & the reviews were favorable. Our dinner was great as were the cocktails. Our server was distracted by a larger party at a table next to us. Others did their best to chip in and serve us so all in all not a bad time.

Delicious, creative food. Tacos are out of this world so too the margaritas. Very busy and wait staff overburdened but friendly, helpful and courteous. Highly recommend to anyone visiting DC.

Excellent service and food. Only drawback was no free chips and salsa - I feel like that’s a staple at any Mexican restaurant.

Really enjoyed this restaurant and would go back if visiting DC again.

The only downside was that we felt a little rushed by our server. When we ordered drinks and an appetizer, he seemed concerned that we wouldn’t be ordering more food and asked us if we’d be ordering dinner. It seemed like within 5 minutes of being there, he wanted our whole order for the night.

Other than that, the food and ambiance were great. We did mix and match tacos and all were delicious: mahi mahi, carne asada, pork belly and cochinita pibil. Also had guac, jicama salad, brussels (could have done without those) and fried ice cream churro. Drinks were also very good: spicy strawberry Paloma, grapefruit Paloma and mango margarita.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. The food is good and the margaritas are even better! I highly recommend the branzino and roasted chicken dish with honey glaze sauce. This is a great spot to celebrate a special occasion or a night out into what town just because. There’s a parking garage around the corner so the restaurant is easily accessible. Give the restaurant a try!

The food and service was great! The payment system was down so we waited about 30mins for a manager to come to our table. They did not make any customer service gestures and asked if they could write down our credit card number to run when their system came back. Wish they would’ve provided better customer service!

Felt rushed. Was there for only 15 minutes before they brought out our main courses. They forgot/skipped our appetizers. It’s like they were trying to get us in and out as fast as possible. Taco Bell is slower than they were. Didn’t realize we were going to a fast food restaurant

I really enjoyed MXDC, and I would return! Service was fast and friendly, and my salmon was amazing. My biggest complaint is that the dessert I ordered, the fried ice cream churros, cost $1 more on my bill than it did on the menu, and the churros didn't taste like real churros. I also had a difficult time hearing my friends talk.

I went for an early dinner by myself. The food was amazing and authentic. I had the queso dip with chorizo (I forgot the name of the dish) and the salmon and yellow rice, it was delicious! My waitress was very nice and attentive, even the bartender came over to bring my drinks. I loved this place, I definitely recommend for Mexican food lovers like myself! 10/10
