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

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

The parking lot is always packed. Just park a block away in the nice neighborhood if you want to eat here. I enjoyed my meals. This rating is based upon two visits. The menu is somewhat confusing and both times I ordered in a rush because many others were waiting. Bottom line is this food is fresh and tasty. They... More

I have been trying to find a good taco place and was excited to try District Taco (new to me but been around awhile). I went on a Wednesday evening. Service was very fast and smooth. And it must be popular since there was a constant stream of customers. I ordered three tacos - grilled chicken, shredded beef and pulled... More
