They were badly understaffed and everything took forever. Then when we ordered veggie fajitas, they were basically frozen vegetables that had been sautéed. They are tasteless. Then we got a tiny bit of salsa, lettuce and sour cream on the side. No cheese and no beans. The tortillas were good.

Had a chicken and beef burrito and my friend had small shrimp fajita. Both good dishes and tasty. Definitely should be on your list.

I have been to Georgetown a million times, but never seemed to notice this place. Well, that won't happen again! Yes, it's tiny, but the size of the place belies the quality of the food. And the house margarita was one of the best I've had in the DMV. Face it, Mexican, or specifically, TexMex, is not a quality cuisine in this area, but you'd never know it from the food Don Lobos serves. I had jalapeno stuffed prawns wrapped in bacon for my dinner, served over a bed of grilled onions on a hot fajita plates. Fresh tortillas, pico de gallo and guacamole made it a perfect meal. My friend, a colleague from Singapore, had a tasty red-wine sangria to accompany her carne asada, which looked amazing! I wish I could have eaten two meals and I would have tried that as well. The waitress was attentive and darling, checking on us several times during the meal, but not so often as to be a nuisance. And the prices were so reasonable: my entree was the most expensive on the menu and topped out at $23.00. Wonderful evening and I'll definitely be taking other friends there in the future!

So happy we found Don Lobos on-line! The food was authentic, served hot right out of the kitchen, & delicious! Great, friendly service and reasonably priced! It’s a small place with a typical Mexican decor but great for a casual dinner! All four of us enjoyed it!

No hours were posted, no real website could be found, and no one answered the phone. OpenTable has great customer service and responded quickly which was much appreciated! It looked really fun inside and I wish we could have dined here. Maybe next time!

Rather than enchilada sauce on the enchiladas it was barbecue sauce. The salsa was warm and was not a good flavor. They didn’t bring the chips out until our food arrived. Cute place.

The Sangria, which the menu says has fruit, did not and was just ok. Nachos came with a small blob of guacamole on one chip, a dollop of sour cream on another, a spoonful of jalapeños on another over a thinly spread layer of refried beans. The only thing evenly spread was the cheese. It was passable. I had the steak fajitas. Steak was not seasoned well and was tough. The dish consisted mainly of onions, and the condiments on the side were very stingy. There was about a tablespoon of what looked and tasted like store bought guacamole, a very small amount of pico de gallo, a little bit of lettuce and a normal portion of rice. No beans. My spouse had the shrimp and crab enchiladas which came with red sauce. He was not impressed. We will not be back.

We found Don Lobos Mexican Grill on Open Table and made reservations (Early dinner on a weekday - reservations are not necessary. There were 3 other diners when we arrived.) Don Lobos is a very small, laid-back, cozy restaurant with good food. (There is a stairway as you walk in so I think they may have a larger room upstairs). Our server was polite and helpful. The food was hot and good. The chicken was tender, well trimmed and plentiful. The salsa was different, rather spicy and a bit smoky. The chips were tasty but a bit tough. My husband ordered a thick and crispy Chicken Chimichanga and I had a Garden Burrito with a side of delicious guacamole. My Burrito was full of veggies and drizzled with a delicious green sauce. It was just perfect to accent the vegetables. I was tempted to ask for more! We will recommend it to our friends but since we do not live nearby, it may be a long time before we visit again.

So we did. Had delicious nacho's, taco's and enchilada's. Good food, good service!

Did a google search for the closest Mexican to me and came up with this. Was greatly surprised by how excellent it was. It was really really really good. I have already recommended to friends and will continue to do so. The beans especially were fantastic.

Unfortunately, the food was not very good. I ordered flautas and was given something that was more like a chimichanga - and the taste was not great. The rice was dry and tasteless as well. I have actually never written a poor review for a restaurant anywhere - but, the food really was not good.
