what was consumed: quesadillas, taco salad, fajitas, ribs! salsa, margaritas …

i love mexican/tex-mex food! so, when i heard there was a place right on capitol hill that was a favorite among my friends, i was excited to make my acquaintance.

they have a wide array of mexican/tex-mex foods – enchiladas, fajitas, tacos, you name it! you walk into a pretty standard looking restaurant, greeted by your server. you can sit either inside or outside (when the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is totally packed! totally popular~). once seated, they bring out some delicious chips and salsa. the salsa has lots of big chunks of veggies and is sort of gespacho-ish (ie there’s a lot of soup/water in the salsa, so if you like it like that, you’re totally in for a treat!). ohhhhh, and their margaritas are delicious! they’re served on the rocks and by the glass or by the pitcher. i, for one, prefer them by the pitcher (haha). during the time when i was a frequent la loma goer, the moment my group would walk in, the servers would know to get margarita pitchers ready … delicious!

but one of the best things (yes, even next to the margaritas) to get at la loma are … their ribs! yes, la loma was the first time i had ribs at a tex-mex joint. so delicious! and if you order them along with fajitas, the ribs are fantastic in the tortillas. but i warn you – between the chips and the large fajita plate, even the best eater will be overwhelmed with the food (ok, so it was just me, but … you know what i mean).
come to think of it, it’s been some time since i’ve visited la loma. a revisit is due! SO excited ^_^
