We believe a great dining experience begins with family. At our restaurants we combine great atmosphere with friendly staff and quality food. We hope the efforts of our family owned business reflect in the experience our guests have and make you feel right at home and part of our family.
The Rincon family arrived in Virginia in the late 1970’s. All four children graduated from Fairfax county schools and universities and continued to invest in their community. They believed that their businesses should provide opportunity and pride to demonstrate the dedication to their hometown and the metropolitan area. Now their children continue the same aspirations as their grandparents did when they arrived over 30 years ago.

The setting is extremely loud, however, especially when they do a birthday song. The only thing keeping me from listing them as 5-stars is their fajitas do not come with bell peppers. It's all onions under the meat. Plus, they give you a very small dollop of guacamole.

The reservation wasn't for a table but the opportunity to skip the hour and half walk-in wait. Unfortunately due to some mishap on their end, the pager given to me wasn't in their system so they had to scramble to get a table after we patiently waited 45 minutes. Luckily their was a bar(or all a part of their plan) and the food and wait service was good (considering they were trying to get everyone moving in and out as soon as possible).

The restaurant was packed. We had reservations and had to wait approximately 30 mins prior to sitting. The time went by fast as the kids had fun watching the tortilla machine and chatting among themselves. Had we waited any longer, it would have been challenging to keep them busy and out of the way of fast-moving servers. Once we sat, they brought chips and salsa and drinks within seconds. The service was outstanding! It's clear they are experienced and adept when it comes to managing large parties. Our food was very good. It was loud in the restaurant but to be expected at a popular family restaurant on a Saturday night. And of course we couldn't leave without them singing their traditional birthday song to our Sombrero-wearing daughter. Francisco, our server, was phenomenal! Attentive, professional and personable. Fun night!

The Fajitas were from the lunch menu and a very generous portion. Chips included ahead of the meal with an excellent sauce. Service was attentive, food was hot, and tasted very good. We'll be back.

I went on a Sunday night so it was super busy and very loud, at times it was hard to hear my friends at the table. We all ordered fajitas so the table seemed to shrink but they were delicious so it made up for feeling a bit cramped. The service was great besides me asking for a large margarita and getting the regular size, our server was very friendly and attentive. Overall I would recommend this place and return!

Reservation process, hostess, bar and waitstaff were great. All 6 of us loved our apps and entrees. But the dining room is ridiculously loud, very difficult to hear ourselves or the servers. Will be a long time before we torture ourselves again.

However, they didn’t bring out a dessert as requested. I felt as I was being rushed with my meal as well. I’m a bit of a “camper” and I definitely don’t like being rush with my meal. Reason why I made a later reservation so I won’t intervine with other seatings. When I arrived the hostess was welcoming, but when my partner arrived he felt as they were a bit rude as one of them roll their eyes because she had to walk him over to the table.

The wait and kitchen staff were fast. The appetizers and chips held us until our main courses. All who came had great things to say about the food. 10/10 recommend.

Nothing special or good. The salsa is not good. We got the steak fajitas — the steak and the tortillas were good but the beans and guacamole not good at all.

Everyone's entree, table of six , was delicious and well presented, came out piping hot and quickly. The Cameron's tequila was very good, as we're the beef and chicken fajitas. There were a lot of choices covering known favourites and a couple of newbies. Especially great was the extensive gluten free menu for one person in our group. Margaritas too, were delicious. Both, on the rocks and frozen, in particular the passion fruit margarita. The large size was huge and pretty good value. At $18, less than double the price of the small but what looked like more than three times the volume. The noise level was high, to be expected in a large open seating area. It was especially loud when the maracas, drums and singers serenaded a table. But, lots of diners joined in, so not a deal breaker for us. Service was good, not intrusive, but prompt and meet all our needs. Overall we all thought we would definitely visit again as it was a fun night.
