Las Tunas in Clarendon
- Michele Graham
It's a divey little Mexican food place in Arlinton on Wilson Blvd, but for some reason I've always wanted to try it. Anyone been there and have some thoughts on it. (It's between the Duncan Donuts and Ballston Mall)
I've been there about three times, but not in the last year and a half or so. I've always liked it, the food is solid Salvadorean and Mexican, not showy. I'm not really recalling anything as being a real standout, but I'd put it on my list of authentic, decent places - not too expensive either. Mostly Spanish speaking and local so sometimes you get looks when you come in the door. The bonus is you can visit the Indian Spices and Appliance shop across the street after your meal - that place is just bizarre.
Good El Salvadorean/Mexican dive (great margaritas) in the district is Casa Juanita's at 11th and I.
