Margarita was excellent. Chips and salsa very good. Guacamole is fantastic - definitely worth ordering. Entrees were good, but nothing special.

Many fans of the Washington Capitals hockey team were having a great (LOUD) time when I arrived. Thankfully, nice hostess found me a table where my friend and I had a least a reasonable chance of hearing each other speak. Food mediocre. Fajitas came with cheese melted all over them -- not what we expected. Fish taco had too much sauce on the top. Waiter was pleasant, but I don't believe he checked in once after serving the wine. Someone else delivered the food. I enjoyed being with my dinner partner, but the meal was underwhelming.

Rosa is always a reliable bet. I haven't been here in a while, and I think they've raised prices in recent years. Not so easy to get an inexpensive light lunch. But the food is tasty and well done, and filling. Guac is always good, and a good variety to choose from.

Outstanding food and service. Great location. The ambience is conducive for a business dinner or for taking that someone special out to eat. The fresh quacmile is to die for.

Both our table and the table next to us did not get a Brunch menu, which ended up being a six dish list anyways. The Huevos Josefina was great, Eggs Benedict not so much.
