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...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...More
