Small menu featuring Yucatán-style tacos, burritos & more from morning to night.- Google
"The taco meat no longer tastes like a carcass, but it is perfectly cooked."
"The key to District Taco is the unlimited condiment bar in the back."

Who would have though that a lunch spot would have been my favorite spot during my trip to DC. Seriously, this place is really good, and that is coming from someone who has become very bored with Mexican food over the years. It always feels the same. But, this place feels like Chipotle on steroids. Obviously, the place has more than just tacos, but it is called District TACO, so I got three of them. As expected, I got to choose a protein, type of tortilla, rice, and various topping to put on my taco(s). I could have gotten something different on each one, but I was pretty grumpy at the time, and thus incapable of making executive decisions. I nominated for a blanket strategy. Frankly, ordering the tacos in this manner feels redundant, as there is a bar where you can pick and chose which and how much of a topping you want. They should just hand you the tortillas and let you have at a bar that is fully stocked with everything, proteins and all. Let you make it the way you want. As a side note, the salsa selection is pretty awesome, and range from mild all the way up to hot. Come to think of it, I really don't have any glaring complaints about District Taco. The food is good, and the atmosphere is casual with plenty of seating available. It's a great place to take a break and grab a bite while exploring DC.

Good food, but you turned a burrito into an enchilada! The burrito "with the sauce" isn't really meant to be picked up, but rather eaten like an enchilada. You've been warned. Still tasty.

Great food. Took my fiancée here and we both loved it. A chain but small and local to DC. Great variety for food, much better than Chipotle.

Great custom made tacos to order. We went just after the lunch rush. The tacos were fantastic. Price was awesome. Three tacos for $8.

Best "fast food" Mexican food in the area - blows away its direct competition. The salsa bar is amazing! EDIT: It's a shame to have to edit my original review because the quality of their food is definitely superior to its "fast food" competition. However, the quality control has really been shoddy the last few times that I've visited this location. Three out of four times they have messed up my order to the point where I have to open and inspect the food in the store, prior to leaving with my takeout. Unfortunately, I probably will not be going back again after this last time where they messed up the order, and then provided me with a messed up replacement that I did not realize until arriving home. And finally, how are your chips stale???

Great fast casual option in Capitol Hill in Pennsylvania. I actually prefer DT over Chipotle, as they don't nickel and dime you based on which meats you're getting, with your order and you can get multiple kinds of salsa for no extra charge. The employees here have always been very friendly and helpful, which adds to the positive experience.

Quick and easy meal. The best part is they use Birch for their soda, though it is rather on the high side. You can get everything for about $10. I discovered the way to not make your bowl look so lacking was to get it topped with everything. They have plugs by the wall for your electronics. Also, you have a choice of real silverware or plastic. Depending on how busy they are, they may deliver your purchase to your table. There is one entry door and an exit on the other side of the tables, so you won't be bumping into people. It's actually really organized.

One of my favorite fast casual Mexican places. I recommend the barbacoa salad
