Taco City

Taco City is inspired by the Aztec/Mayan culture, mixing Mexican current traditions with today's modern society.  Located passed the bridge on 8th Street SE (south side of Barracks Row), stop here for Happy Hour specials before heading to a baseball game at Nationals Park.

For only $2.50 each during Happy Hour, the tacos were fresh and packed full of meat.  Keith ordered the Tinga de Pollo - shredded chicken with aioli and pickled onion; Chilorio de Res - braised beef with avocado sauce, onion, and cilantro; and Carnitas - roasted pork with salsa verde and a pork skin on top.

We also shared a side of the Esquites - grilled corn with crema, cilantro, queso fresco, Chile Pequin, mayo, and lots of lime juice.  This dish had a subtle spicy kick and was very tasty and a perfect summer salad.

I ordered the Quesadillas de Pollo with Chihuahua Cheese, pico de gallo, crema, pickled onions, and queso fresco.  The chicken was very flavorful and overall, I really enjoyed this comforting dish. The pickled onions gave a nice sour contrast to each bite.

The service was incredibly friendly, welcoming, and the food came out fresh and fast!  I can't believe we hadn't been here sooner.  Check out Taco City next time you are in the mood for some authentic Mexican fare.
