Voted #1 BEST margaritas in the DC area by Washington City Paper 2014 , 2015, 2016, 2017!
Zagat's Top TEN Mexican restaurants in DC area !
"The tacos can be things of beauty: a marriage of meticulously prepared fillings (the cumin-poached chicken and the adobo-seasoned pork among my favorites), corn-dense tortillas and a smooth, smoky house-made salsa constructed from mild-mannered ancho and Anaheim chiles." The Washington Post
"...a cheerful, friendly establishment, usually crowded with families. The owners are proud of their fresh salsas and they should be. Each one--green, red and the hot habanero--has a rich flavor..." Gayot's Review
"The traditional tacos al pastor, which come out only after 5:30, pile thin shavings of adobo pork with cilantro, pineapple, and red-chili sauce. We love the grilled-shrimp soft taco, with its sweet-tart red-onion escabéche and avocado drizzle, and the LA-style crispy taco, filled with adobo pork." Washingtonian
"Washington could hardly be farther from the Pacific Ocean, but the Baja Fish Taco at Taqueria el Poblano is a welcome taste of the other coast." Washington Post
"Swimmingly good" fish tacos are the lure at these "sunny" Californian-inspired Mexican joints in Arlington and Del Ray that also draw accolades for "good" salsa that hits the table "almost immediately" and "zippy" 'ritas — "no margarita mix here." "Efficient," family-friendly service and "low prices" please an "enthusiastic crowd." Zagat
"Fresh is the operative word at Taqueria. Even the margaritas are made with fresh-squeezed lime juice. I recommend starting with guacamole (made daily with fresh avocados). For a main course you won't go wrong ordering your preferred Mexican dish, but in case you don't have one, I suggest pairing an L.A. crispy taco with a shrimp or duck carnita." Andy, Arlington Gazette
When I arrived in D.C., I went into serious fish taco withdrawal. I was ecstatic—almost giddy—to find that Taqueria Poblano serves fish tacos.
