We are operating all our locations beyond CDC and state-mandated health and safety guidelines in order to do our part in keeping you and our city safe. Before you proceed with your reservation please take a moment to review our response to COVID-19.

  • 20% service charge: During these uncertain times, we’re adding a 20% service charge in lieu of gratuity to all guest checks. This fee will be used by the restaurant to cover the additional wages paid to staff and other atypical expenses related to COVID-19.
  • Enhanced safety and cleaning protocols: You can learn more about those efforts at fifthgroup.com/clean.
  • We’ve gone cash-free: This will help us reduce points of contact between team members and guests.

Your favorite local taqueria serves up Tex-Mex with a twist in a fun and vibrant atmosphere. Enjoy an ice-cold beverage on the patio or dip into our signature queso royale in the dining room at this family-friendly joint filled with Virginia-Highland charm.
