8 consecutive years as one of the best 100 Cheap Eats—Washingtonian

From the Washingtonian:
“Two cornerstones of the South-of-the-Border cuisine, guacamole and beans, are among the best in the area. The ensalada de nopalitos a good-size platter of marinated cactus slices, jalepeños, avocados, and queso fresco is a great starter to share.
Tamales are also stars, filled with pork and guajillo sauce or chihuahua cheese and salsa verde.”
