From a press release:

“District Taco, a popular fast-casual Mexican restaurant in the D.C. Metro area, is opening its second restaurant in the state of Maryland on July 1, 2019.

From there, the restaurant chain plans to open multiple restaurants in 2020.

District Taco is truly delicious. I am literally drooling after simply typing their name. So, so very good. I know what I’m having for lunch today. I’ll be grabbing a bite in Tenleytown at 4600 Wisconsin Ave, NW (photo above.) But you can find all their locations here. And if the lure of their deliciousness is not enough – do it simply to spite this jackwagon:

We last spoke about District Taco back in early August when they donated a portion of sales to help “purchase school supplies for underprivileged children”.

Again, you can also find them in Dupont at 1919 M Street, NW; Eastern Market at
656 Pennsylvania Ave, SE; Metro Center at 1309 F Street, NW; and Virginia locations here.

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been sitting at Joselito for less than 20 minutes and in that time no fewer than a dozen people have been turned away dejected that District Taco is closed for renovation, which makes me think this is new. Figured I’d do my civic duty and report it.”

Last week District Taco reported on their Facebook page:

“Beginning tomorrow, June 5th, our Eastern Market location will be temporarily closed for renovations! Lo siento for the inconvenience.”

I’ll update when they reopen!

From a press release:

“District Taco is opening its eighth restaurant on Monday, October 17th, 2016. The restaurant is located at 4600 Wisconsin Avenue NW in Washington, D.C.

Regular business hours start at 11 am. District Taco expects a positive turnout so it is best to arrive prior to the opening time. The first 50 customers in line will receive a District Taco goodie bag of swag.

As a company that encourages philanthropic outreach, District Taco actively partners up with non-profits located near the restaurant sites. For the Tenleytown grand opening, District Taco is hosting a fundraiser for the Friendship Place Community Center. (more…)

Tenleytown continues to dominate the fast casual food market. Yesterday the Washington Post had a great profile on the founder of District Taco and towards the end revealed this little tidbit:

“Next up are restaurants in Skyline and Tenleytown.”

I emailed Osiris and he tells me that if all goes well the Tenleytown location should be open in 5-6 months!! And it’s coming to Wisconsin Ave and Brandywine St in the brand new Tenley View development.

You can see District Taco’s menu here. Updates as they get closer to opening.
