....in this simple, yet extraordinary taqueria, where, every time you come back you feel you are in central Mexico and are never disappointed... Many taquerias are full on Sunday, but this one is full every night, so prepare yourself to several minutes of waiting.. your patience will be compensated by the variety of Mexican country flavors.. from tongue to jowls to tripe to liver or heart for the courageous and the cognoscenti, and more common items. like chorizo, chicken, nopales, carnitas and so on.. definitely off center,as compared to the center of DC, but worth visiting for any food aficionado...

Wowee I was excited to see the menu as it has been a while since I've eaten Venezuelan cuisine so I was eager to try a bit of everything: tequenos, arepas, cachapas, chicha, and the cuban sandwich. The cachapas (shredded beef y queso) and the arepas (chicken-avocado) were my faves but whenever they serve the chicken avocado arepas, go for it!!!!!!

For $3 each I was expecting the usual single-handed meal experienced at other taquerias. These tacos were overflowing with meat, were difficult to hold with one hand, and each bite caused some chunks of meat to fall out. Besides the pleasant surprise for quantity, quality was very good. The lengua was very tender and needed some sauce (green & red accompanied the tacos). The al pastor was flavorful. The real surprise was the tender, crispy texture of the tripa helped by a few minutes on the flat top grill. If you want Coke, both domestic and Mexican versions are available.It can be busy during lunch. Ordering is faster if you speak a little Spanish. They assume most gringos take out. The TV is blaring a Hispanic station.
I love the pupusas here - but have had little else. Fried plantains are good too. My Spanish is non-existant and not all of the staff speaks English well, so sometimes we have trouble communicating. They serve on disposable Styrofoam with plastic utensils - no liquor license.
The dishes here are delicious, and beautifully presented without being precious. The wine list is reasonably priced and varied. I've been 3 times so far, everything I've tried was quite wonderful. My memory isn't specific enough to make particular recs for certain dishes, but everything was above expectations and way above average. Important note for my age cohort - the noise level is very comfortable. The staff are very knowledgeable and very professional. The setting (old Riverdale) is charming. Because of that setting, a bit outside of DC (but very accessible for DC residents), prices are quite reasonable.
