Who knew tacos and enchiladas could be so controversial?
Lauriol Plaza, a trendy Mexican restaurant between Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle, is one of the most controversial eateries in D.C.
Everyone seems to have strong feelings. Critics say it is vastly overrated and dismiss the food as not being worthy enough to justify the packed bar of young people sipping margaritas waiting for a table. Yet clearly many people love the restaurant, or there wouldn't be big crowds in the first place.
But why do people have to hate Lauriol Plaza so much? Just because a place is popular doesn't mean it's bad. Even if it is indeed overrated, that just means it should be rated a bit lower -- not that it should be discarded entirely.
