The reason to drop by this Mexican restaurant is the menudo, a hard-to-find soup made with tripe and simmered for hours that many Mexicans regard as the ultimate in comfort food. That explains the crowded, noisy room. But the denizens of Little Mexico, the immigrant community clustered in and around the Bladensburg/Hyattsville area, also come for the chilaquiles (a glorious mess of torn corn tortillas, red or green chili sauce, a fried egg, queso fresco, and a fried chicken cutlet), the huevos rancheros, and the posole, a robust pork-and-hominy soup. One dish is plenty and will take you well past lunch, but don’t ignore one of the best guacamoles in the area. Daily 9 am to 10 pm.
