Upscale Mexican food with a casual setting. Downstairs offers a different menu then upstairs so take a look at the menus before you ask for a table. The poritons downstairs are very large and great for groups, nachos, burritos and tacos.

This food was sub par at best. I knew it was a disaster when they brought me white rice for my side. Their form of salsa is "pico de gallo". I had high hopes of this place. Especially since it was near Penn's campus. But, I'm very disappointed. I guess that's my fault for assuming authenticity.

While it was 4pm and slow on a Saturday, the service was stellar. The food was eve better. The chicken nachos were amazing.

service was sooo slow (granted we were in a huge group) but I thought the food was just okay. it's a nice, lively restaurant with a good drink selection. good for big parties but not top of list of places I'd come back to.

I love Mexican food, but need a healthier choice. I found it here! I had the Red Snapper in a tomato-based sauce and it was delicious. The also have a huge selection of tequila, and great service.

Had dinner with family of five last night. Distrito's is one of our favorite places in Philadelphia. We were very disappointed this time. The quality of the food was mediocre to poor. The chicken enchilada's had tough and stale chunks of chicken. The steak enchiladas gave my daughter severe diarrhea 5 hours later. Fish tacos and other enchiladas were average. This experience was totally opposite of the many times we have been there before; and will act as a deterrent to future visits

Great small plate type Mexican food that is unique & not your typical Mexican food. Our small group tried almost every vegetarian item, & some gluten free items. Don't come here to find heavy cheesy or oily items, but modern Mexican food with unique items to make them special. The atmosphere is lively with colorful art, tables & chairs.

A lot of hype. Feed was fine, but nothing to rave about. Inflated expectations.
