Wanted to find a relatively inexpensive place to eat outside of downtown DC. This was a great choice, food is fresh and authentic. My family had an array of items from nachos, burritos and of course the tacos. We also in joyed the drink options. Definitely at the top of my list on another visit to our nations capital!

Before there is a local uproar, this rating is based on the menu items top to bottom. Just going for barbacoa tacos? 4+ stars I've gone to DT many times and I have never had a bad experience. Never spectacular although can be excellent if specific combinations are ordered. Everything is fresh from salsa to tortillas to meat. I've dined... More

First time in the area and I know I will return!!! Had a trio of tacos - on beef, chicken and carnitas all served a different way because I was so indecisive. They were all fabulous!!! Also got an order of guacamole and chips which were really good as well.

Great tasting food. The staff was very helpful as my young niece was unsure about ordering tacos from a place other than Taco Bell. Good salsa bar. Even authentic soda.

All the tacos are amazing. Today we had fish, carnitas, beef, al pastor, and kids quesadillas. All are perfect - wouldn't change a thing. Great selection of salsas on the salsa bar. It can get loud when dining in but the crowd was thin at 5:30 pm and ramped up a bit from there (on a weeknight). The food and... More

I've been a District Taco fan since they were just a food truck and have never had a bad dish. The homemade corn tacos are favorite (as are the loaded nachos burrachos but I tend toward healthier fare). Tonight I tried the shrimp tacos and they were delicious. The shrimp were warm and flavorful, topped with cabbage and a delicious... More

We eat here at least once a week. The kids love the burritos and tacos. I get the denudo (no tortilla). Love the self serve salsa bar with so many fresh salsas to choose from.

District Taco is well loved for its natural ingredients and take-out with all the condiments you need for a decent Mexican meal. Dining is impossible with families bringing small children to run around the area while they wait for their take-out order. Very loud and very busy made worse by inadequate parking. We've stopped going there as there are equally... More

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!
