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

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.

My husband, three year old daughter, and I had lunch at District Taco. The tacos were amazing! I had their fish tacos and I was in heaven. My daughter couldn't get enough of their chips and salsa. They were the best we had since moving east from Texas. The ingredients were fresh and well prepared. Service was fast and friendly.... More

We loved this place, we had never heard of it but gave it a try. It was delicious except the tacos were so small, We liked everything but wanted more. It was fresh, delicious, and the carne asada was great. But 3 tacos for $7 was a deal, except they were just too small. I could have easily had 5... More

District Taco in Arlington, Virginia is a terrific place to have breakfast tacos... a Tex-Mex treat I usually find only in Austin, Texas. Breakfast Tacos consist of a fresh tortilla, eggs, potatoes, and your choice of other fillings like bacon, chorizo, avocado, etc. The result is a delicious and satisfying breakfast alternative to the usual fast fare. District Taco has... More

This was my first visit to District Taco after many stops at the big chain taco/burrito spots. Moving forward, my cravings for burrito bowls and tacos will be satisfied by DT. The ingredients in my burrito bowl tasted so unbelievably fresh and left me energized rather than feeling lethargic. Definitely check this place out. Enjoy some Boylan's Birch Beer while... More
