On the upper edges of Georgetown, Los Cuates can be a hike, but it is absolutely worth it. The bright, Latin decor and ambience creates never-ending good times, with plenty of laughter to go around. While the steak fajitas are mouthwatering, Los Cuates is famous among college students for its frozen margaritas. Get the lemon, strawberry, or both to start off your night out in Georgetown. If it’s your birthday, they may let you wear one of their colorful sombreros!
