Find out what Mexican restaurants to try in Potomac. Potomac ( listen (help·info)) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Montgomery County, Maryland, United States, named for the nearby Potomac River. Home to royalty, billionaires, diplomats, and the international business elite, it is one of the most prestigious communities in the Washington, D.C. area (and the US). In 2013, CNNMoney listed Potomac as the most affluent town in all the United States based on median household income. Potomac is also the seventh-most top-educated American small town according to Forbes. Bloomberg Businessweek labeled Potomac as the twenty-ninth-richest zip code in the United States in 2011, stating that it had the largest population of any U.S. town with a median income of more than $240,000. In 2012, The Higley Elite 100 published a list of highest-income neighborhoods by mean household income, which included four neighborhoods in Potomac; one of these neighborhoods, "Carderock-The Palisades" was ranked the highest-income neighborhood in the United States, followed by "Beverly Hills-North of Sunset" in Beverly Hills, California, and "Swinks Mill-Dominion Reserve" of McLean, Virginia. More recently, two Potomac neighborhoods were ranked among the ten wealthiest neighborhoods in the country by CNBC in 2014. In 2018, data from the American Community Survey revealed that Potomac was the sixth-wealthiest city in the United States. Many Potomac residents work in nearby Washington, D.C.

El Mariachi

Reviewed By Mrfiz

Family outing. Some of us had been here before. For us, our first visit. And my spouse isn’t wild about Tex-Mex. But what a pleasant surprise. An extensive menu with dinners running between $15. and $25. The scallops, shrimp and lobster dinners are recommended. Two of our party ( including my spouse ) had the steak carne and both enjoyed it. I ordered the chicken chimichanga with rice and beans, onions, sour cream and guacamole. Lots of chicken stuffed into a wrap. It was excellent and so big I couldn’t finish it. Others in our party had other dinners. Each was brought out hot from the oven and each was presented attractively. In all dinner for six ran about $165 for a group of six. And we would certainly return.

I went to Potomac Village and decided to have lunch at Chipotle. I got a chicken, brown rice, and guacamole burrito. I enjoyed my burrito and gulped it down with a strawberry smoothie from Starbucks. It had a very strong and tasty flavor, and I instantly realized why: the tangy lemon flavor of the guacamole and the spicy taste of the chicken. Overall, I would rate my burrito 4 and 1/2 stars. I loved Chipotle Andi wish to go again soon.Note: this review was written by a 10 year old girl. I recommend this place to all ages.

Gringos & Mariachis

Reviewed By fdoaguirre57

We visited Bethesda and found Gringos & Mariachis to be very authentic Mexican food. The Staff was also quite friendly & quick. We will return again. Besides the food, they have quite a list of creative & unique drinks. We asked for some adjustments to some drinks, like replacing tequila for mezcal, and they gladly accommodated our requests. Net, very worthy experience.

Plaza Azteca Restaurant

Reviewed By Darryl R

The cuisine is Tex-Mex and some Peruvian dishes with seafood and duck. The portions are large and prices reasonable. It is located in a strip mall with a Home Depot, where parking is free but limited. The family-run restaurant is busy but service keeps up with the demand (my water glass was never empty as they constantly topped it off). The quality of the food was very good (my Carne Asada was tender and cooked to order-medium) and there are plenty of menu choices for everyone. They willingly substituted the rice & beans with the mixed vegetable side (celery, carrots, green peppers & onions cooked al dente). Not a gourmet destination, but a great local restaurant that you want to return to.

Gringos & Mariachis

Authentic Mexican street fare specializing in street tacos, tequila, mezcal and whiskey.

Reviewed By greagan

Went for lunch.EXCELLENT golden margaritas! EXCELLENT duck tacos! EXCELLENT salsa! Awful tortilla chips. Thick, more like crackers. No flavor, no detectable salt. My husband had the Torta de Chicken (sic)Milanese and was rather disappointed. Huge, thick, white bread bun encasing some pretty good fillings, served with a giant side of French fries. Way too much carb. Blood glucose sugar express!!!Service was excellent across the board, will definitely be back.
