Dear PoPville – El Torogoz is the Best!

A reader writes:

“El Torogoz has the best foodie happy hour in Petworth. They have the most kick-ass fresh nachos you can find in town for only $5!!!”

El Torogoz is located at 4231 9th St NW (just north of Upshur). We last judged them back in March 2011.

Anyone else try the nachos? Any other must order items?

They also have a great outdoor patio area that faces one of my favorite pocket parks in the city:

  • Yes! I love their chicken tacos… and the enchiladas that are on the appetizer menu. I order them to go at least 1-2 times a week… totally addicted.

  • I love getting pupusas and beer on that patio in the spring/summer. Looking forward to it! I also enjoy their huevos rancheros for brunch. And the tiki bar inside makes me smile every time.

    Yep, I’m a fan too. I’ve had some mixed results with the menu items but the good stuff is really good. I love sitting out there on the patio with a beer or margarita and some nachos! Might head up there tonight as a matter of fact!

  • Yup. Great food, but I don’t dig the cave-like interior with the music cranked up to “11”. I never understood the need for blasting the music in Latino establishments….

    • I just think they really know how to rock it out, and also it helps to distinguish the restaurant from libraries or the quiet car on Amtrak.

      If you ever get the opportunity to own a car with an exceptional sound system installed, I think you will begin to understand!

  • What makes the nachos fresh?
