Good variety of menu options to share late lunch with friend: jicama salad, plantain, vegetable enchalada, beans with rice. Attentive service. Comfortable setting for an enjoyable afternoon.
Food was delicious but It should be noted somewhere that they do not seat guests upstairs after 8pm. Downstairs is a significantly more of a taco shop atmosphere.
Excellent service and food. Was a little loud, hard to have a conversation. Great value!
The tacos are amazing, the margs-extra boozy, and the ambiance is also very cool.
The staff was very friendly. The food was delicious and the frozen margaritas are amazing!
Great service and good solid food.
Great food. Lots of items to share and also individual entrees. All delicious!
Reservations for Friday night. The first thing you notice as you walk in is a strong smell of bleach. My thoughts are what did they just clean up? Second thing I notice is that it’s pretty empty. It’s noisy but that’s coming from the bartender.
Like most Stephen Starr restaurants, they’re really nice when they first open but then slowly fall apart not very well maintained. The masks that decorate the wall look like they need a good cleaning at least a dusting.
Most of the food was OK. I like the corn. The fish taco tasted just a tad bit off.
I was here before and had a good memory of the place. Now, not so much. Can’t recommend. There are much better Mexican restaurants in the city. The small crowd on a Friday night tells a story of a restaurant thats not popular anymore.
Distrito used to be my first choice in Philadelphia for Mexican food. The quality has regressed and the service was just ok. The guacamole was bland and the salsa was watery. The atmosphere was very much like they didn’t want us there as there were empty tables and stacked chairs and in the past it was inviting and lively.
Really used to love this place, it had a great menu and food, but now its just average Mexican, with a smaller menu and lack luster preparation. The space is still cool and service is fine, but the food, which is why you go there, is past its day. Needs a do-over!
Best margaritas ever! Perfect happy hour spot - and dinner after you've had your fair share of the $5 margaritas. Highly recommend the al pastor tacos. Flavorful, juicy, tangy, delicious!
Food presentation and taste was outstanding. Excellent cucumber margarita. Our server, Sam, was attentive and knowledgeable about the entire menu so as to answer all of our questions. Building can amplify the energetic crowd, but I didn't find that to be a problem. Looking forward to our next visit.
While this restaurant is one of my favorites in University City for everyday dining, I also like it for celebrating with friends!
The service was fantastic, Emmanuel is a great guy who really knows how to make people feel welcome. We look forward to returning soon!
Distrito is a fun place to go with a family or a group of friends. Service was attentive and food was creative and served at the proper temperature with good spacing. We have dined there a number of times and would return.
The food was nothing special. The guacamole had no chunks in it and was just ok. The special taco was 450 and it was so small it was funny. The margaritas where good but not worth the money
We just got 3 taco's each, but they were very tasty. Service and atmosphere were excellent. We'll be back to try more things :).
Food is always delicious here! Service is quick and I love the energy of the restaurant. The tortilla soup is one of my favorite menu items; sooo good! Their tacos are always a good bet; very filling and a nice variety are offered.
We'r were dat on the top floor ad it was more family oriented. The drinks were good and the desserts Outstanding. Burritos lacked meat, they were more filled with rice and beans than pork. Taste was ok. Servers where attentive and cordial. Overall, it was ok. Pricey.
Distrito has always been a favorite. This time we also had the Horchata Flam for dessert. Absolutely scrumptious. Service was excellent as always too.
Distrito is always one of my favorite places to go so my friends took me here for my birthday. The service is always so fast and our server was knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. Food was delicious and came out quickly! Can't wait to go back again!
Thought the food was amazing! The server was a little unkind.
love the atmosphere and the tacos are amazing! My friends and I will definitely return soon!
Burrito was great. Black cherry margarita was amazing.
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.
