It started with two friends and a taco stand.

In 2009, Osiris Hoil and his neighbor, Marc Wallace, got together over some homemade chips, salsa and guacamole and decided to launch the District Taco food cart in Rosslyn, Virginia.

Over a decade later, District Taco is operating multiple restaurants across Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. We continue to provide the surrounding community with not just the best Yucatan-inspired food, but also with countless opportunities to grow and develop with the District Taco team.

District Taco’s unique cuisine is different from other popular Mexican chains. The flavor palate is based on family recipes from Yucatán, where co-founder Osiris Hoil was born and raised. We infuse dried chiles, citrus and our own secret spice blends.

Our marinated meats are grilled and diced in our restaurants daily. Our salsas are made from fresh grilled tomatoes and chiles and blended to perfection for authentic Yucatán flavor.

Our ingredients are sourced fresh and our recipes support a healthy lifestyle. There are no trans fats in our food, and we offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
