We used to go there on a regular basis a few years ago, loved it. The food was delicious and we used to do the tastings all the time. We went for my son's 18th birthday and we were disappointed with the limited menu and the quality of the food. The server was awesome and very attentive but we will not be returning because the food was a disappointment.
The karoke room was so so fun!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!
Food wasn’t that great, and the waiter wasn’t very welcoming
You have to really, really like Mexican food to enjoy Distrito. It is certainly a draw for patrons between the ages of 21-30 years of age, so as a member of the more "senior" set, I found all the noise and energy a bit off putting. That being said, the food was quite good and a significant change from all the fare out there masquerading as authentic Mexican cuisine. Be sure to add the crabmeat if you are having the Avocado dip appetizer. You will not be sorry. Overall, I would recommend this place no matter what place on the age spectrum you are.
One of my favorite restaurants in Philly! Great place to have our function for our business club.
Great place to start the weekend Dining and celebrating with friends!
Hefe margarita was fantastic. Guac and soft tacos were generic/ lackluster. A bit pricy for what we got.
Great happy hour prices, extremely friendly staff that seems very team-based. Food was great!
Love the food. It’s always great. I’ve been five times in the last 8 months and I live in DC; that’s how good the food is. Never been let down by service or quality of food. So glad you can make reservations!
Went with my wife and her friend and had a great time!
Excellent prep, fresh and original take on mexican cuisine!
Excellent service and food. We sat at our table for 2h and the server was very attentive and helpful and allowed us to have our pace. Highly recommend especially on Taco Tuesday!
Fun restaurant with flavorful food! Great place for young adults!
Food is fine Very limited menu.
Overall the restaurant was nice, but I did not enjoy the food. It was too bland for me.
My favorite is the Chipotle Chicken and Distrito is a great place to go with friends.
Normally I give 5 stars all around. I mean this is my favorite place and I would definitely recommend anyone to go here, but the fire alarm went off and continued to go off for a good 45 minutes. Everyone was just so nonchalant about it and it was so loud I couldn’t even hear the conversation I was having with a friend and imagine someone being there who has epilepsy.
Asked for glass of water with no ice. We were the only people in the restaurant and the server was talking to the hostess for about 20 minutes until he remembered to bring me water with no ice. I took care of myself ask the bar tender for a glass instead. I ordered the flatbread and it was not as good as last time. Will not be going back.
Waiter and Kitchen wouldn’t even make an easy modification for my wife being a Vegan, only when Manager came out did he say they had messed up and comped the meal. I didn’t even want anything for free, the Kitchen and Waiter should have found a way to say yes to our request the first time, Distrito you need to learn, the customer is always right!
Went to Distrito Taqueria while we were staying in University City. We were in the mood for something we couldn’t get at home and i searched open table when we got to our hotel. Looking for something within walking distance I stumbled across DIstrito. When we arrived We we greeted and asked if we needed children’s menus. I was happy they had this as my kids aren’t adventurous eaters and they had standard items like hot dogs and chicken tenders ( but much better quality). We split the nacho. They were delish and huge. I had the two house special tacos, they were delish. We ordered lemonades and you can tell they were genuinely fresh squeezed. The ambiance of the restaurant was super fun. Clean and colorful. I told my husband this would be a great first or second date restaurant. Lots of things to pick out in the decor that are conversation starters. The service was excellent. Overall I’ll be recommending this place to anyone I know who will be in this area.
The waitress we had was really nice and attentive to us. The service was fast but we were not rushed. And the food was delicious!
It was very quiet likely because it was the Sunday before July 4th. Food and drinks are good and prices are average for this type of establishment.
First road trip in our brand new Tesla!
Absolutely amazing place. Great for groups! Drinks are amazing!
We went early on Saturday night and were seated at a small table. Our appetizer and meals came out within minutes of each other so the table was packed. Larger tables beside us were empty. I felt rushed. Our waiter was good though. Food was ok, nothing special.
James our server was great! I will definitely go back again.
Everything was outstanding, except our server. He was very slow, unattentive, and never refilled our drinks. But, he was muy simpatico. :(
Our server, Zach, was quite good first to last. The guacamole was just fine, nicely spiced and just enough for the two of us. Best of all was the appetizer special: grilled shrimp heavily spiced and sizzling. Our two entrees, on the other hand were ok, but nothing special: enchiladas, mine crab, Andrew's vegetable.
We would go again if in the neighborhood, but we seldom are. Compared with Amada, this place suffers greatly. But it's ok, and the price is right.
Wonderful enchiladas and margaritas.
We were placed next to the waiters stand, but other than that the food was delicious and well priced!!
We went for my 3 year old son's birthday while visiting Philadelphia. We were told to request a Car or Swing table and ended up with a Car, which the little guy loved. Service was quick for drinks and food. Food was prepared well and had great flavor. All in all a good meal.
A little on the expensive side for me ($4.50+ for one taco), but the food and drinks were really good.
Would recommend this restaurant for a couple or a group of friends
Thanks to Zack, our server, for a pleasant experience! Loved our nachos!!
It's been years since we frequented the original Distrito, since we had a local outpost near home in Moorestown. Menu is a little shorter and more casual. Still good for a margarita and meal out with friends.
Took very long to be seated, and server was not that great. He was slow and got the drinks wrong. I didnt send them back they were actually good. The food was awesome, the drinks were awesome...
It was loud and the food wasn’t as good as I remembered and there were a lot drunk college kids.
Still my favorite Mexican restaurant in University City! Great place to meet and hang out with friends.
Love Distrito! One of my personal favorites from just meeting a friend to celebrating with family!
Great Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Happy hour drinks daily 5-7.
