Clarendon just got a new Mexican place! Lime Fresh Mexican Grill. I always love it when West Coast hotspots make it over our way. As you would expect, this restaurant uses humanely-raised meat, local produce, and makes all of the sides and sauces onsite. Besides the Wilson Blvd location in Clarendon, Lime has also spread to Pentagon Row and DC.
Chris & I have been there twice so far and it will definitely be a regular in our date night rotation. Also, we have actually run into friends each time we’ve been so far. I guess we’re not the only ones who love it!
The prices are similar to Chipotle, though a side of guacamole is about twice the price of Chipotle’s… but you get two or three times the amount, so it all works out. I have loved the tacos so far, and Chris went all out with steak and chicken fajitas last time. We’ve tried two different kinds of guacamole (there are four to choose from) and have enjoyed both.
I think the deals are what I’m the most excited about. Scoutmob has been running a 50% off deal–which is really $7 off, since that’s the maximum. Also, Lime has a great happy hour on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays: $2 Coronas, $2 Original Tacos, $3 Sangria, and $3 Margaritas. I haven’t tried the Sangria yet, but the Margarita (comes out blended from a machine) was pretty good.
Thanks for coming, Lime! We appreciate your cheap and refreshing presence here in Clarendon. We’ll definitely be back soon!
