Great tacos

Tacos are great here. Lots of variety is offered here. I especially enjoy the breakfast tacos which are served all day! Typically a 10-15 minute wait.

I visit this location about once a month with my wife and 2 small kids and have not been disappointed. The tacos are great and a range of choices in terms of meats and toppings. It looks like they recently put some $ into a light update to the decor and turned down the music (it used to be too... More

I heard about it on a local news channel talking about them opening their 8th or 9th location and that it started as a truck business in 2009. That many locations in a short time span caught my attention. I went. I understood the rapid expansion. I plan to visit as often as possible.

The tacos here are of high quality, the service is fast, the place is crowded and the parking is extremely limited. We went here right at lunchtime on a FRI. First, like many other venues off Route 29 in Arlington, this place is in a small strip mall area, has very limited parking and the adjacent stores have signs warning... More

District taco continues to offer ridiculously tasty food morning, noon or night. Great place to grab coffee and breakfast (egg) tacos on a Saturday early or a quick dinner in between child activities/chaperoning ad naseum. Cheap - big and personalized tacos - choose your tortilla (wheat or corn), protein (6 choices) - pick your toppings (at least 8) and then... More

Arlington is still talking about how great District Taco is. And it is for take-out, if you can find parking. The restaurant has limited seating and parents who love to unleash their children on the place. So plan to take the food home with you - and you won't be disappointed. The "3 Tacos for $8" is the best deal... More

Had heard really mixed reviews of this place. Tried it for lunch and it didn't disappoint!! Easy ordering, friendly service, cold beer and other good soda! Nice salsa bar. We had chicken tacos, order of pintos, order of black beans and rice, chips and salsa. We'll go back for sure!! It was very loud in the main eating area. We... More
