After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender baby disk with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Latin fare and drinks at El Aguila in Silver Spring.

El Aguila's culinary artisans adorn plates with heaping portions of authentic Mexican and Salvadorian fare prepared with fresh ingredients. Inside, dining diners can lecture fellow feasters on the importance of sustainable cheese farming over an appetizer of Nachos El Aguila, a mound of corn chips topped with melted cheddar, refried beans, and juicy morsels of charbroiled chicken or beef ($9.99). Once palates are primed, meat-eaters can munch on Steak a la Salvadoreña, a tender-cut sirloin served alongside rice, refried beans, and salad ($13.99), and sea-food fiends indulge in a Cola de Langosta Rellana, a lobster tail stuffed with crab meat and served with rice and veggies ($27.49). The vegetarian burrito, a tasty tortilla swaddling almost every vegetable known to man, will appease herbivorous tongues looking to tango with meatless fare ($11.99). Of-age drinkers can supplement spicy spreads with mango margaritas, just one of many fruity concoctions on the drink menu that can provide the courage necessary to ask a stranger to dance, even in the absence of music. El Aguila's cozy dining area boasts a prismatic beach mural, a palm-tree motif, and––on some nights––live music, lending the restaurant an atmosphere of relaxed vibrancy, perfect for family outings and executive-level food fights with coworkers.

Reviews

Fifteen Yelpers give El Aguila a four-star average and Gayot rated it 12/20:

  • We like the courteous service as much as the Santa Fe burrito filled with beef rolled in a flour tortilla and topped with enchilada sauce. The chile relleno also is good. For a taste change, try the pupusas in their thick cornmeal wrap or fried plantains with cream and beans. – Gayot
  • [O]ver all the food was very tasty and the portions were large, the prices were good, and the ambiance was charming and relaxing. I will go back. – Lauren B., Yelp, 7/6/10

"Very satisfying Dinner"
Walked in early on a Saturday night for dinner. DJ was setting up and offered to play requests betwwen 8 and 9 pm. We took him up on that and sang "Unchained Melody" while danced at our table.

"Meh"
I really wanted to like El Aguila. Though not in an ideal location (strip mall), it produces good smells. We went there on Cinco de Mayo because our usual place was PACKED. The fact that this place was not should have clued us in, but it did not. And we were told that they have live music ... Read More

It was lunchtime when there is a buffet and regular menu. 12:30 pm. When manager asked if we wanted ... Read More
