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

I love District Taco! The food is deliciously fresh and well-seasoned. They have a great salsa bar with fresh cilantro, chopped onions and jalepenos which is also really nice. Their menu offers a wide selection, but my favorite is the barbacoa (sp?) beef. I have never had their queso, but their guacamole is de-lish. I love their homemade chips, too.... More

There's a reason the lines are long and parking is hard to find. This is great local mexican food, and it's wonderful that you can customize every taco to the furthest extent. Try the fish tacos when you get a chance! Most people like the guac, too. (It's just so-so to us.)

District Taco is essentially the norm for taco bars. The chicken had no flavor, unseasoned. The beef soft tacos had flavor, but we're salty. The place is loud, really loud and hard to get your order in. On the plus side, they have Boylan's on tap.

Started out as a food truck and expanded to multi locations in the metro area. Guacamole tasted as good as homemade with the right amount of lime, salt, cilantro and obvious avocado chunks. Locally brewed soda selection is fun and well worth $2 price. Quesadilla was great choice for kids. Would definitely return again.

It looks like a hole in the wall -- but, there are lines out the door at all hours and any wait is definitely worth it. The best tacos around. (You can call and order ahead for takeout.) My favorite are the pork & pineapple soft tacos with a little cheese. The guacamole and chips aren't bad either.

District Taco has the best tacos I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Never mind the fact that the price is great, but the staff is nice, the food comes quickly, and there's something for everyone. Best tacos ever. 'Nuff said.

I was really impressed with this place on a recent visit to D.C. As a traveller on a budget I was able to eat fresh, healthy and tasty food for a modest price. Great value. I loved the salsa bar and also the quality of soda. In comparison with other places on my travels I think District Taco's effort to... More
