It used to be a pleasure to eat the food at this place . Last two visits the tortillas where old and the huevos rancheros were dry and lacking of taste .

This is a great local Mexican place. Plan on waiting a good while if you go in the middle of the day on Saturday or Sunday, but it is worth the wait. My favorite order is their standard vegetarian taco with a free avocado on top. Unlike most fast food places they also have beer (in bottles) to go with... More

Used to live in the area and eat here all the time, and every time I come back to visit I have to eat at District Taco! They have a food truck and location in DC, but the Arlington location is just as good and definitely less crowded. The Boylan's soda fountain and salsa bar are great, and the ingredients... More

Love the queso and guac at District Taco. Also, THE SHRIMP TACOS are it!!! My daughter likes to get the nachos, but they are too big for her, so I have to share them. Our favorite way to order them is with queso, barbacoa, black beans, tomatoes, guac and sour cream. No wonder I can't lose weight! HA!! The breakfast... More

Stopped by with my general contractor for a quick lunch break. Arrived at 12:30 pm on a Thurs and while busy, we only had to wait about 2 mins before we placed our order. Had we arrived 15 mins later, we'd been standing in a line reaching out towards the front door! I discovered that you can also order online... More

Tacos are great here. Lots of variety is offered here. I especially enjoy the breakfast tacos which are served all day! Typically a 10-15 minute wait.

I visit this location about once a month with my wife and 2 small kids and have not been disappointed. The tacos are great and a range of choices in terms of meats and toppings. It looks like they recently put some $ into a light update to the decor and turned down the music (it used to be too... More

I heard about it on a local news channel talking about them opening their 8th or 9th location and that it started as a truck business in 2009. That many locations in a short time span caught my attention. I went. I understood the rapid expansion. I plan to visit as often as possible.

The tacos here are of high quality, the service is fast, the place is crowded and the parking is extremely limited. We went here right at lunchtime on a FRI. First, like many other venues off Route 29 in Arlington, this place is in a small strip mall area, has very limited parking and the adjacent stores have signs warning... More

A great little Mexican place - wonderful food, kid-friendly, always busy & crowded but I can always find a place to sit.
