Thirty seats surround the bar at this big, bright taqueria and tequileria from the owners of DC Coast and PassionFish, but the actual standing-and-sitting capacity is about five times that. A relatively mature Clarendon crowd fills the space—engaged in conversation or entertained by a game on one of the flat-screen TVs (rather than, say, yelling and spilling things). Another perk: a weekday 4-to-7 happy hour featuring a very respectable house margarita for $5. Insider tip: Friday through Tuesday, grab a seat near slender, brown-haired bartender Dale DaSilva—he’s speedy, attentive, and full of useful menu recommendations. Open daily.
