Citysearch Editorial Review. This Washington landmark near the National Cathedral serves tourists and presidents alike, keeping tradition alive since 1968. The food is so authentic, even notoriously reclusive “Dubya” ventured in for a taste of home. The culinary vacation begins with crispy chips and slightly spicy salsa served to every table upon arrival. Menu items range from the traditional enchilada platters to tacos filled with local rockfish, while the decor is distinctly southwestern, with exposed brick and rafters and Native American garb displayed near the entrance. Grab a seat on the large, umbrella-covered deck during margarita-sipping weather, or request seats for a big group of friends inside where even teetotalers will enjoy refreshing frozen lemonade.
D.C.'s Best Mexican Food. Like Pringles, once you pop, you just can't stop... eating the chips and salsa at Cactus Cantina. This Glover Park favorite is the best place for Mexican Food in a fun, laid-back environment. The space is large enough so that there is rarely a wait to be seated, even when you're with large groups. There is a lengthy list of tequilas, a variety of margarita options, and of course all of your favorite Mexican beers on top. Aside from the drink menu, the main menu has every Mexican dish you can think of and each one tastes better than the next. This is a great spot to meet for drinks and a quick bite after work during the week.
