Reviews for El Tamarindo

Horrible customer service, we over heard our waiter arguing with another waitress to take our table because he didn’t want to help us. He took our order and never checked back in with us. I had to flag down the manager I think it was to get us refills and our check. On top of all of that the food is over priced and quality has gone down. Will definitely NOT be returning or recommend to friends/family

My friend and I were visiting DC for the day and were in the area when we came across El Tamarindo. Our serves was very nice and accommodating and they've done a great job of keeping the tables spread out during this pandemic. We got the chicken and shrimp fajita which and both were quite delicious but that being said I have had much better Mexican food. For the price, I would recommend trying out El Tamarindo if you're ever in the neighborhood.

This is one of the best budget meals in DC. DC is known for being a hotspot for pupusas, and yet we somehow have not gotten pupusas in the 8 years we've lived in DC (other than frozen ones at Whole Foods, but that doesn't count). If you have a pupusa craving, El Tamarindo is a great choice. They set up a tent with several dozen tables underneath in the parking lot adjacent to the space, which allows them to do outside seating right now during phase 2 of the reopening....read full review
