“We love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Excellent food. We particularly love their breakfast tacos. Delicious! And their hot salsa is the best that we've found in our area.

“District taco always fresh and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The tacos and salads are delicious. The guacamole is great quality. The service is friendly and efficient and the salsa bar is spicy. What more is there?

“Authentic mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We are from Texas where there are mexican restaurants on almost every corner and we eat mexican food 1-2x per week. So while traveling in the DC area we needed a mexican food fix and found District Taco. We were not disappointed. In fact we went back twice during our week long stay in DC it was so good. We had various versions of their tacos, chicken, carnitas (pork) and beef, all were excellent. Order them as per their menu the "mexican way" which means onions and fresh chopped cilantro added on top, this is the way they are made in Mexico. Their salsas are also excellent, with choices of green (tomatillo), mild and hot red sauces. It was obvious all the salsas were fresh made in house, we know our salsas and these were all awesome. The restaurant was very busy on both visits but ordering is quick and your food comes out fast. Top off your taco with a cold Corona and you cant go wrong. If you want authentic mexican food (Yucatan style) in the DC area this is the place to be.

“Weak....Chipotle Is All It Is”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Look, I was ready, so ready to like this place.

How disappointing.

First of all, no crispy shell tacos. Which strikes me as pretty lame. Secondly, the food that I did end up ordering is just nothing special. It is basic. Sorry, but it really had nada to speak of. Without sauces? Bland. It is Chipotle or anyone else serving burritos or whatever in flour wraps. Chewy & boring.

The environment reminded me of a cafeteria. Or a Roy Rogers, lawd help us all. The fixin's bar was RR all the way. And the place was a pigsty, with sauces & condiments splashed about. Unappealing!

You want good tacos, good food, I'd recommend El Paso Cafe on Pershing in Arlington. I won't waste more money at District Taco.

“Solid Neighborhood Tex-Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Cool place, good vibe. The desayuno was so-so, but the Tacos were very solid. Nice people and definitely a lunch-time favorite. We would recommend the tacos and burritos.
