    We eat here regularly with our celiac daughter and have never had a problem. Many items are gluten free, and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. District Taco is a blessing for our family!

    Gluten free options were well defined so it was easy to order. Very delicious food. No ill effects. Can't wait to go back.

    Eaten here dozens of times, literally can't get enough! I've never gotten sick here. Almost everything is gluten free except the flour tortillas. I've tried nachos, queso, burrito bowls, chips, tacos, all delicious!

    a lot of gluten free options! you can get absolutely everything either as a bowl or with corn tortillas. when we explained to them that my daughter had celiac, they changed gloves and took precautions to prevent cross contamination.

    This place is so much better than chipotle and has a fresh salsa bar! The guacamole is super good and the chips are corn. They offer corn tortillas and I've never felt sick eating here but I also don't get sick if there's cross contamination. This is a must go place if visiting the area. My favorite is getting carnitas with chips and guac.

    They know what you mean when you ask for gluten free, and they place aluminum foil over the grill when warming your corn tortillas. They have always gone out of their way to accommodate me. And the tacos are great!

    Was in DC 3 days sightseeing. I have celiac and so does my son. We ate here four different times and loved it. My son liked the tacos but couldn't stop getting the gf queso. For gf orders they have a dedicated person change gloves, wrap fresh corn tortillas in aluminum and prepare the order. Tortilla chips are gf.

    It was all just ok. The best part was that they write Gluten Free on the ticket so I know that the kitchen knows not to cross contaminate. I wish everywhere would do this! Chips were hard and tasted stale. No salt. Tomatillo salsa was strangely creamy. Guac was a strange texture and a bit bland. Corn tortillas were thick and chewy- in a bad way. Barbacoa is better at Chipotle. Carnitas were bland. My friend got the chicken as said it was the best meat in his three tacos.

    A good fast food option, qualitatively better than chipotle with roughly equivalent quantity. They have corn tortillas and bowls as GF options, and are generally sensitive to the gluten free diet; largely by default because of the type of food they serve. The guacamole is good and the salsa bar is worth checking out as well. I recommend take out because it can get pretty loud and hectic in the store at times. Good atmosphere on par with similarly priced burrito/taco shops like Chipotle and Moe's. tl;dr - Good food, fair prices, good quality, not dedicated gluten free, would visit again.

    I watched them cook my vegetables right on the same spot they had been warming wheat tortillas.

    Food is still good but the lady making our food stuck her hand right in the cheese and lettuce. Maybe she only did it with the gluten free. I can't be sure. My kids aren't as sensitive as me but yesterday I had a teenie stomach ache and we ate there also. So ifs def worth eating just as always watch your food.

    Excellent! If you like tacos you will love this place. My kids loved it too! You just let them know you need gluten free and they give you a corn tortillas instead. Delish! The pico de gallo is yum! We got the barbacoa ( shredded beef). Definitely recommend!

    I had high expectations for this place after reading some reviews. I go to all the popular Mexican restaurants so I find it easy to give my opinion here. Overall the food was decent, no brilliant flavors or spices mostly salt and pepper. The rice is completely unseasoned white rice, no cilantro or lime. The steak was very plain too, however it was tender. I would give their food 2 stars because it was so bland, but adding 1 star because it did taste fresh and they did accommodate gluten intolerant customers. Their chips and queso are gluten free, and to make all the dishes better I put queso on them. Be careful because some of their salsas have wheat, you should ask which ones. I would rate them below all the major Mexican chains even California Tortilla and Moe's...

    We thought the tacos were very good, especially the fish tacos. I didn't have any symptoms after eating there. The order got confused several times, but they did their best to get it worked out.

    Unfortunately both times I've been here, I've gotten sick. Make sure if you get tacos that you specify that you want gluten free, not just corn tortillas. They handle them differently. I'm not sure if I picked up cross contamination from the chips or what. However, well priced, and while the food isn't spectacular, it's good with a bit of salt, pepper and lime.

    Due to being GFCF I eat a lot of Mexican food but even though it was quick and inexpensive, I wouldn't call it fast food. It was freshly prepared, the salsas tasted home made and it was delicious!! What a wonderful treat. I wish we had these in New Jersey!!

    Less than $5 for lunch from District Taco - corn tortillas with pinto beans, rice, guac, and mixed veggies. Tell them you're gluten free at the register and they'll make your meal special to avoid cross contamination!
