The reason that there’s such disparity in the reviews is the change in ownership late 2014, and there’s a very big difference between the old and new owners.
I lived in Poolesville for several years. The Mexican Grill under the previous owners was indeed less...than mediocre.
About a year ago the restaurant changed hands, with a new crew in the Kitchen. I spent time in Mexico city, and I find that the kitchen now creates authentic Mexican food, very much like the stuff I enjoyed in Mexico city.
So this is not Chipotle, or Uncle Julio or any of these chains offering what passes for Mexican food in American suburbia.
The food is fresh, made to order, and consistently good. The service is very friendly, if somewhat unpolished.
These guys are a great addition to the limited food scene in Poolesville, and I wish them the best of luck, and I urge fellow Poolesvilleans as well as visitors to our fair little burg to give them a second chance. You will not be disappointed.More
