Quaint place. Food is great, drinks are great. A Little dark ( in upstairs area) ( for reading menu card etc.) Also, be reminded, it is a TAPAS bar, mostly small bites, taco's, chips, salsa etc. Some of the menu items are plentiful ( nacho's quesadillas) So if you are hungry order those items or just several tacos. Overall it was a great place service was fantastic.
The food tasted very good and there is a large variety of tacos. The four stars are for the size of the tacos. They are very small and cost about $3.75 each.
Very reasonably priced, great taco selection. Would recommend highly.
A tequila bar with no tequila list to be found anywhere.... very inattentive service that was spotty at best all around the room.
Tacos were good though..
The food was amazing and the ambience was very nice! Will definitely visit again!
We have a child with a food allergy, and the manager (Carlos) was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable. Super friendly, super helpful, and the tacos were DELICIOUS!!!!! Thank you, Don Taco!
(For those with food allergies – it always helps to make a reservation ahead of time, noting your allergies in the comments section. We also try to call the restaurant the morning of our reservation during "off-peak" hours to confirm that they are willing and able to accommodate food allergies).
we love Don Taco. we fell in love with the variety of Tacos and then discovered brunch. the Eggs Benedicto is simply amazing!
We happened across this restaurant on Yelp pretty randomly and thought we would check it out because who doesn't like tacos. We were pleasantly surprised to say the least. The place decor was great, the service was quick, the tacos were amazing (reasonably prices and ability to order just one taco at a time makes for being able to taste lots of different things). We ended up ordering off both the brunch and normal menus. The grilled cheese on the brunch menu was absolutely above and beyond. Seriously so yummy. I'm a vegetarian and they were nice about taking the bacon off the sandwich. There are also a few vegetarian tacos. I tried all of them and they were pretty good. All and all would recommend to a friend.
I'm a taco nut. I travel a lot and eat tacos wherever I go, getting a sense of where the best are to be found. (Encinitas, CA, if you were wondering.)
My name is Don and so I had to try the tacos at Don Taco on Alexandria, VA. (I collect taco shop tees, so it was a must-have.) They are what I would call "non-traditional" (NT) tacos in that they are more "foodie" style tacos, with a wide variety like Lamb Chimichurri and Mexican Spare Rib. They had traditional tacos, but I opted for the funky ones.
I have to say, these were the best NT tacos I've probably ever had. The price was right at $3.75 each, and three tacos was just right. I had the two tacos mentioned above, as well as the pomegranate steak tacos. All three were really nicely done. My wife had the special (salmon) as well as a portobello taco and a shrimp taco. She loved all three.
Wide variety, good prices, great drinks, accommodating bartender (my wife had special requests) and great, attentive staff. This taco spot barely edges out Haggos tacos in Encinitas as my fave NT taco shop.
We LOVED the tacos! We got 7 different kinds of street tacos and they were the best we've ever had. The food was very creative and unique and we will be going back there the next time we're in DC! The service was amazing, our waiter was really personable and outgoing! Last but not least the margaritas are a must try here. They are among the best I have ever had!
Overall good. Tacos were delicious, however, margaritas are too expensive.
Food was great, just wish the prices would match the amount of food that I actually received. They also charge you for chips and salsa, like c'mon, really?
Always try the "taco of the week" special
-great tequila selection
-outdoor/indoor seating, second level too
-House Margarita a little small for its size
-3 or 4 tacos recommended per person
-Would like to see the Tequila Menu online and on the table please
Great relaxed place with amazing tacos and margaritas!
We love Don Taco. Servers go out of their way to be friendly. Our bartender even mixed us a custom drink. Food is great and the ambiance is chill.
Low price, decent service most of the time, but sometimes they are busy. Lots of variety in the food. If you don't like one thing there will be something you do like. Their guacamole is the best.
Great food. Friendly and helpful staff. Pricey drinks.
Food was awesome, we really enjoyed it! The prices were good but I wish the Chips were complimentary. Quest dip was like $6? But service was quick and waiter was very nice.
Well thought out menu. Well prepared food
Went with a group of colleagues, we had a great time. Menu variety had something for everyone and lots to share.
Our server was EXTREMELY rude from the time we walked in to the time we left. She seemed annoyed to be serving us and did not make us feel welcome at all which was so disappointing considering it was my birthday. I won't be going back here.
Interesting place, I wasn't that impressed. The taco selections are creative, but nothing that really wowed me. The empanads are fantastic. If you are going to go here get the empanadas. I like my tacos classic. Small space and cool ambiance. Loud during happy hour. Most people crowd around the bar.
Service was great. Very helpful in choosing tequila flight!
Our waiter wasn't as helpful as we hoped, had to wait an extremely long time to simply as for the check. Food was bland.
Always good here. You can do a small meal or you can go big and order a ton of food amongst friends.
The tacos, guac and salsa are all very good. The seating can be a bit cozy, but the presentation and the taste of the food make it a worth it. It has a nice hip vibe and the staff are polite and friendly. I would recommend giving it a try.
food is great as usual!!! a bit of a younger crowd. But nothing crazy. My girlfriend and i took her parents here for dinner and they loved the food
Don Taco was so good for brunch. The mimosas (and man-mosas) and bloody marys are cheap and delicious. The breakfast tacos, guacamole, chips...everything was excellent. Our server even was able to guide us to something that might work for our child. We will definitely come back here again soon.
Great evening with friends! Fun atmosphere! We will come back again!
Giovani was our waiter - very knowledgeable and friendly . Cinthia was our hostess. Excellent environment. The food was great. We had enchiladas. We'll be back soon.
Grear atmosphere, great food, and our waitress was accommodating, fun, personable, and knowledgable!! Great times and great place!!
This was my second visit to Don Taco. Both times the food has been sub par & the service both times was horrible! The margarita also tasted like something you would get from a dive in Tijuana Mexico...cheap & like gasoline. Our server had no idea what came in each Taco & it is not listed on the menu which is NOT helpful. We will not be eating here again!
Great variety of tacos and other dishes for meat-eaters, vegetarians, gluten free, and even kids. There was definitely some variability in how good everything was - maybe that's just a matter of taste and preferences. Overall would definitely go back.
I am not a huge taco fan, but Don Taco is absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. The menu offers a great array of fresh, well-prepared fillings. My go-to's are the sweet and spicy mahi mahi, grilled portabello with Mexican cream drizzle, and the pomegranate-glazed skirt steak. The tacos are bite-size (2 to 3 bites), so you can try several and feel quite satisfied.
I got 4 different tacos and all of them were packed with flavor. The pomegranate steak packs a unique island taste and the surf and turf is a must order with the steak seasoned to perfection. I would be out of pocket not to mention the palet grabbing chicken siracha taco. The tacos are small but the chef piles the goods on them so go ahead and order a few. Try many flavors too. They're worth it.
Great Sunday brunch. The food and drinks were fantastic, the service was very good. Great little haunt.
The service was amazing! From the time you walked in the door to the time, you left everyone spoke and was very courteous. The food was tasty, proportioned just right and fresh. Our server Gary, made the experience memorable. Only odd thing to mention, the bathroom on the first level had a very strange smell.
Tacos ordered 'sushi style'... Fairly priced and absolutely delicious.
Great service for our small group.
The tacos at Don Taco are obviously great, but they also had other small plates worth ordering, like empanadas, guacamole, and the chicken nachos were easily a meal for one person. I would also highly suggest the waffle battered oreos- they come a la mode and were the perfect decadent treat to share.
