District Taco is, without a doubt, the best Mexican food in Arlington. I've been there four times, and the food is always stellar! Like salsa? District Taco has a whole salsa bar full of salsa mild to strong salsas. The sodas (Boylan) are also very good. From sit-down to take-out, District Taco is a great restaurant. I recommend the burrito w/ carne asada

Great tacos! But it's a taco bar and not a restaurant. Don't go there for the atmosphere. Go for the Tacos and other Mexican dishes. It's on par with Chipotle.

Pretty good tacos, great choice of fillings. They can accommodate special orders. Drink selection is good. If you have to have a taco in Arlington you can't go wrong.

I enjoyed District Taco, which features fresh ingredients and soft corn or flour tacos. Unlike one of the other reviewers here, I thought the carnitas taco (pork) was much tastier than the steak options. I tasted my husband's beans and rice order and thought the beans were undercooked but he liked them. The cheese dip was a little bland, but we mixed in jalapenos from the salsa bar and that improved it immensely.

The restaurant was very crowded but we found a table for four, although there were mostly long tables that I think people were sharing. This is in one of the strip malls along Lee Highway between Glebe and Route 50 so the surroundings are not great and the parking was awful. Happily everyone was polite as people had to wait and slowly back out to maneuver in the space.

I would definitely return!

On a Saturday for lunch, it was crowded, and by the time our order was placed, people were queued outside the door. If you plan to eat inside, you just have to find spaces somewhere along a long table. A few tables for two exist. This fast food joint is located in a small strip mall with limited parking. In fact there is valet parking for the entire shopping center but we lucked out with a parking space. We just ordered a taco and burrito. You specify every condiment, & even the type of protein (chicken, beef or pork, etc.) you want on the taco or burrito so it is confusing for a first-timer. Agree it is fresh tasting but found it too basic. Perhaps we should have ordered something else, but there are no combination dishes or specials to guide you. Obviously this is a popular place. We love Mexican food but doubt we will give this location another try.
