Good mexican restaurants around MoCo for SoCal transplants?

dodomaster | Sep 15, 2007 01:06 PM

We recently moved from Southern California and we are looking for some great Mexican restaurants around Montgomery County.

Preferably real Mexican and not so much Tex-Mex. Habaneras, cactus burritos, crispy carnitas style, mole, crunchy chimis, and goat tacos, pozoles, would be awesome.

We have been to Tia Queta in Bethesda; Rio Grande, Pepitos, and Taco Bar in Gaithersburg; Mi Rancho in Silver Spring and Germantown; el Mexicano in Germantown and North Potomac/Darnestown; Taco Tecuba (decent carnitas) in Germantown; we even tried the Salvadorian restaurant Juanitas near Redland (shady grove Metro) and it was decent.

Any suggestions? Nothing fancy, just awesome spicy mexican food is all we are looking for... Thanks in advance.
