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... read 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

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

Delicious upper end quality Mexican food for a good price. I had two tacos, one chicken, one beef. Next time I would chose just chicken. The chicken was seasoned perfect and tender. It is a rolled taco that was stuffed with my choice of grilled vegetables, and other toppings. The fresh cilantro and pico were very good as well. The... More

District Taco is, without a doubt, the best Mexican food in Arlington. I've been there four times, and the food is always stellar! Like salsa? District Taco has a whole salsa bar full of salsa mild to strong salsas. The sodas (Boylan) are also very good. From sit-down to take-out, District Taco is a great restaurant. I recommend the burrito... More
