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

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

District Taco is crowded and noisy, even for a late lunch. But the food is excellent and inexpensive. You can also order on-line and have your food ready when you walk in the door. If you're familiar with Mexican food and know what you're ordering, you can go wrong with District Taco.

I am always confused when eating at District Taco because it is always packed. Living only a few blocks away I have eaten here a number of times, because my little brother loves it, and the quality remains consistently mediocre. The chicken is always lacking in flavor, the cheese tastes like plastic, and the guacamole is a joke. If you... More

A member of our group was hankering for some good Mexican food and heard of this place. We gave it a try and even though we complained about the 10 mile/ 30 minute drive, we were glad we made the drive. The tacos we got were fantastic and all were good options but I loved the Carne asada taco in... More

Small restaurant. Good fresh tacos more in the Mexican style not Cali, or Tex-Mex. fresh salsa bar and a soda fountain that has drinks made with pure cane sugar.
