Big news for District Taco fans.

The restaurant, at 5723 Lee Highway, received its state alcoholic beverage permit today, according to owner Osiris Hoil. That means the eatery — which has thus far been limited to serving soda, juice, water and coffee — will be able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo tomorrow (Thursday) with cold cervezas.

We also learned today that District Taco is planning on opening a second brick-and-mortar restaurant by the end of the year. The restaurant will open somewhere in D.C. proper, Hoil confirmed.

Hoil says they haven’t settled on a location, but hinted that he hopes President Obama will drop by one day. On its web site, District Taco says it also has plans to expand outside the Washington area.

    Good for them. District Taco has quickly become my favorite cheap food in Arlington. It has the potential to be a very successful regional chain.

    Hooray Beer! I agree with Zach. District Taco is a great place to get good food without paying too much. Half the fun is trying to find a parking spot.

    Are margarita’s coming as well?

    I can say that their cart is always busy when it’s parked in Crystal City.

    This is a good thing; seeing a homegrown business flourish. They do a great job w/ social media advertising.
