I was looking for a place to eat on the SW side of DC and had a car- bad move as all of the places on 8th St SW had no parking nearby. I was about to give up and luckily found a spot on...More

Shrimp tacos were special for Monday and they tasted fresh. I brought home two salsas to try. I have had them when they tasted less fresh so I was pleased.

Personally, I don't understand the draw this place has. Living in NYC I'm only stopping in when visiting friends in DC, but other than the price I don't understand what people love. I've been in a few times and they've been ok but my most...More

Yes, it is fast food but well done. If you want to over do it on portions, it can happen here. I prefer to stick with the tacos so I don't over do it. Some of burritos and other dishes are large. Cheese dip rocks!...More

I got this recommendation off Reddit and they did not disappoint. Food was absolutely delicious and the sugar cane sodas were a nice treat! We still talk about this place and can't wait for another trip back to D.C.

Awesome! Everything we had here was amazing. The tacos are very affordable (3 for $8!!) and they are wonderful. Carnitas and Barbacoa were my favorites. The food is quick and the toppings are fresh. The cashier who took our order was VERY nice and also...More

When District Taco opened this Eastern Market/Barracks Row location, they quickly became a neighborhood favorite. Tasty food. Reasonable prices. Easy for groups to eat there or take out. Love their taco options.

The portions were huge. I got a burrito salad that was huge. I didn't come close to finishing it. The chips and queso were also good. My husband enjoyed his tacos. It's quick service, but they bring the food to you. Not the cheapest place,...More
