The food at Tia Queta, at least what I've ordered, strikes me as much closer to authentic Mexican food than the typical Tex Mex to which I'm accustomed. I've tried a number of the fish dishes, and they were fantastic. Portions were somewhat larger than expected, as many places seem to assume that anyone ordering fish must be on a diet. And the chef managed to make it all taste great without covering it in fat. Atmosphere is very relaxed and low key (it's in an old-style [convert]ed house), a welcome respite from every other place in downtown Bethesda. Only complaint is that upon closer inspection the menu is more repititive and less varied than it initially seems. I don't recall what the specials were the last time I went, or even if they have specials, but a little more variety would turn this "A" restaurant into an "A+".

We've been going here for years and it is always very good food, especially anything in the fajita family. A real standout is their homemade hot sauce ask for the red "salsa picante". Staff and owner don't speak English all that well which can be difficult if you're asking details about the food... a good place to get a quiet table, tables are close together but the feeling is private. Highly recommended
