We just tried this place and are so thankful. It was terrific! Ingredients were fresh, meats weren't greasy,and it's efficient. It's a fun place/environment. Highly recommend!

Best tacos in DC- and surrounding burbs-period!!! Weekends are busy and parking is always a hassle. The barbacoa are just like mama used to make and the house brand sodas are a nice change!!! Go hear... Treat yourself... You are worth it 😎😎😎

This is a nice fast food restaurant serving the standard Mexican fare. The servings are ample and prices low.

I grab district taco for lunch fairly often during the work week. The tacos and guacamole are my favorites. My office is across the street and I've also ordered catering from them for some lunch meeting, which is always a hit. Be prepared for long lines during the work week lunch hour.

Our whole family loves to get our Mexican fix at this casual place. We love the chicken and carnitas tacos, bean burritos, guacamole, and burrito bowls. Service is usually pretty quick.

Rosslyn is a lunchtime wasteland, so I was excited to see that District Taco -- which has strong buzz from its DC locations -- had opened on Wilson Blvd. [Note: This location is not in Trip Advisor's listings.] Sadly, District's arrival is not a significant improvement.

A lot of people love this place, and I can see why. They have a pretty good menu and lots of options to choose from. I had a quesadilla, and it was pretty good. They had unique soft drink options, not the typical Coke or Pepsi products. The staff seemed friendly and helpful, especially since it was my first time... More

It seems like a hole in the wall, but it's always busy - for a reason. Starting out as a food truck to get a customer base was very smart on these guys! The food is great, the restaurant has a great atmosphere. It is very similar to chipotle, but better. More variety in options, and better quality food. The... More

Busy all the time and parking is a challenge. Very popular spot for a reason -- the food is good. Very good! Three tacos American style with shredded pork were delicious. Great portion of meat with a huge variety of toppings with mutiple salsas available.

Thank Wes G
