“Local favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

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.)

“Did not stand out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

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.

“Delicious food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

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.

“Local favorite not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

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.

“Went here three times in four days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

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.
