Cactus Cantina

While the tourists are down the hill in Georgetown, the real Wisconsin Avenue hot spot is Cactus Cantina. This Tex-Mex restaurant, which is a couple of blocks from the National Cathedral, has served DC residents for over 30-years—meaning there are people who have celebrated both their first drink and their first child here. The restaurant is huge and can seat around 300 people comfortably, so it works well for a casual catch up or group gathering. The food itself is just okay, though.
