Lauriol Plaza

93% love it
Tasty Tex-Mex eats in a sophisticated, urban atmosphere.
Lauriol Plaza is a great spot for Mexican and margaritas. They've got a gorgeous rooftop patio. The restaurant also tends to do a lot of charity work where they donate a percentage of their earnings to organizations that help HIV and cancer patients and the Children National Hospital.

      Better for Socializing
      Lauriol Plaza has several good things about it. The building is gigantic, the drinks are good, and the service keeps up surprisingly well considering all the different floors and tables they have to navigate. The only problem you may have is if you are a real lover of traditional Mexican Food. this is not what you would get in a little mom and pop restaurant in Texas or California. What you do get however, is passably good food, in a place designed to allow you and a group of friends to have a fun evening out while being able to see a few hundred of your other friends doing the exact same thing.

      Just OK Mexican
      The place is huge and designed well, but the food just always seem so so to me. You will see your fair share of gays there, but it isn't a "gay spot" per se. The majority of folks are on their way to Adams Morgan or U Street after. If you want basic american tex mex food...this place wont' be bad, but don't expect culinary mastery.
