Mama Chuy, web site, 2620 Georgia Avenue NW, Washington, DC, 202-667-6262 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [WaPo | dishtip | Washingtonian | Don Rockwell | Yelp]
This place is really good. Mom and pop. The chef is from Jalisco and the place serves mostly tacos, snack food, tamales, and so on. The best guacamole I’ve had in this area. First-rate sopes carnitas. Above-average tacos but the sopes are better. Cheap prices. The sort of place that many of you are clamoring for.
