Last time I went off my beat and wrote about food truck District Taco, a lot of comments complained about the fact the taco totin’ food cart wasn’t actually located in The District. There was also a random accusation that I was a secret spokesperson for the local establishment. Sorry to say they don’t pay me, I’m just a fan.
Even though it would be wicked awesome if they did pay me to eat their tacos- that would be a great gig.
I’m happy to report that District Taco can now fully embrace their namesake. This week DT founders Osiris Hoil and Marc Wallace opened a new District Taco location near Metro Center near 13th & F St NW. The new store is the latest step of a remarkable story for Hoil, who was laid off from his construction job in 2008 and decided to start a Taco business with his best friend and neighbor Wallace.
I took some photos at a sneak peek of the restaurant last week check them out past the cut.
The restaurant will be open 7 AM – 9 PM Monday – Friday. Weekend hours are in the works for the near future. I personally enjoy grabbing a breakfast taco with the works (bacon, chorizo, and guac), however there’s also a wide selection of burritos and quesadillas if you aren’t a fattie like me.
