    Hmm. What time would I need to get there, do you think? I live in building….

    • Anon

      You can afford to live in this building but you’re willing to wait in a (presumably) long line for a free taco?

      • FridayGirl

        lol.

        • Anon (first)

          Et tu, FridayGirl? You are usually nice!
          .
          Everyone has been so snippy on here lately. PSA: It’s not always required that your response makes a joke at someone else’s expense. Before being too pleased with yourself for a snarky comment, consider that you may not know someone’s circumstances….

          • FridayGirl

            I was less laughing at you and more laughing at the lengths people go for free things in this city generally.

      • Anon (first)

        Yes because I’m unemployed (hopefully temporarily, but then I got pregnant so I’m basically unemployable for the next 6 months bc ain’t no one hiring a blatantly pregnant lady!) So, yes, I pay high rent per lease, I’m broke, hungry, and have lots of time on my hands. What’s it to you?
        .
        Now, does anyone have anything responsive to say in response to my question?

        • Anonymous

          Your best bet is to go outside and check at 845am. I can’t imagine things being quite as bonkers as when a Chick-fil-A opens since there is no prospect of a bunch of free meals for a year.

          • MadMax

            They’re only giving away $9 on a Tuesday in an area that’s usually cleaned out because people are working further downtown. I imagine there won’t be much of a line.

          • FridayGirl

            Ok, that’s enough snark now anonymous. One was enough, and the other anon beat you to it.
            .
            Also, first anon, I personally feel like 10:30am in that area would be a decent bet… maybe 10am if you’re feeling really ambitious. I know the Cava opening in Dupont had a huge line around 10am but that was in Dupont, so…

      • Anonynon

        that was pretty good. I have to admit.

  • GBinCH

    I don’t get this – I walked by on Friday and people were in there eating. Was that the soft open? Do fast food places even do soft opens?!

    • FridayGirl

      Ick, that happened when Eatsa first opened too and I was annoyed! People were there eating so I tried to stop in a little bit later and they wouldn’t let me in! They said it was friends and family only! So I guess it could have been that kind of thing?

  • Anonynon

    Why not offer paying customers $1 off their first taco. I think all around that ‘model’ works a lot better than this ‘free’ wait in line ‘craze’ that appears to be happening across DC on a weekly basis. Cool that this is now an option on U street

    • textdoc

      A free meal is (IMO) a lot more newsworthy/buzzworthy/enticing than a dollar-off offer. Doesn’t seem like a bad way to drum up publicity.

  • MadMax

    They were OK for like the first two weeks their truck was in operation, and it’s only gone downhill from there.

    • MtP

      Agree completely (though I give them credit for at least a few months, maybe a year or so, of the truck being good). I was shocked at how bad (dry, flavorless) it was last time I tried it.

  • northeazy

    Anything less than 3 months of free food and I am not interested. I waited in line for Mason Dixie’s opening Saturday. I grossly underestimated the turnout and did not get a free food pass. I will NOT be making that mistake for the Maryland Ave. CFA.
