What makes us UNIQUE

District Taco is a tech forward, innovative brand serving the freshest ingredients with our signature flavors inspired by our Founder's family recipes from Yucatán.


Our Story

In 2009, friends and co-founders Osiris Hoil and Marc Wallace started with a food cart selling tacos in the Metro DC area. The authentic recipes were from the Yucatán, where Osiris was born and raised. Today we have 15 locations in four states and recently signed our first 5-Unit Development Agreement.

Our Mission

To provide customers with an experience that exceeds expectations, from our high quality ingredients, to our outstanding customer service.

Yucatán-Inspired Menu

District Taco's cuisine is different from food at other popular Mexican chains. The flavor pallet is based on family recipes from Yucatán, where Co-founder Osiris Hoil was born and raised. Our delicious meals infuse dried chiles, citrus and our own (secret) spice blends. Our meats are marinated, grilled and diced (never ground!) in our restaurants daily. And, our salsas are made from fresh grilled tomatoes and chiles, then blended to perfection for authentic Yucatán flavor.

Technology Innovations

Our robust tech stack includes a native mobile app, loyalty program, comprehensive in-store and off-premise ordering channels, and operations portal.
