One afternoon I was in the area with friends and wasn’t in the mood to cook dinner. We stopped here because I have passed it many times and it always seemed busy so I figured I would give a shot. Big mistake. I ordered a...More

I went here for dinner w/ my kids. I thought this was a “authentic” taco spot. Wrong. You go to the counter to order American-Mexican, then they bring it to you at the table. You get your own drinks. I am not a fan of...More

I had been living in the USA for 4 months, so I had a chance to try different foods. California burrito in Taco District is one of the most savoring meals I’d had! If you are a tourist like me who forgets to eat for...More

We go here for lunch often on weekends. The service is always quick and friendly and, for DC, the price point is good. I always order the fish tacos and love them every single time. My husband usually gets nachos with pretty much every topping...More

For fast food, this isn't a bad choice. Certainly better than most burger places. I ate three tacos, but it wasn't quite enough for a decent lunch for me. My wife, however, was happy with her three tacos. Overall, it's a good spot for tourists...More

We two had a mix of tastes: varied tacos for one, the burrito mojado for the other; plus a dish of guac with chips. The flavors were good and fresh. We like the salsa bar, although it could be kept a bit cleaner. The staff...More

District Taco is a staple for our DC visits. It’s fast, cheap (for DC), and super fresh. If you don’t HAVE to go right at lunchtime, I would recommend going earlier or later because it will be very crowded and if you haven’t been there...More
