Tacos El Chilango Truck Opening D.C. Restaurant

Like District Taco before it, the Tacos el Chilango truck — which serves tacos from a semi-permanent parking spot in the residential neighborhood of Radnor-Fort Myer Heights — is getting its own brick-and-mortar restaurant in the District.

As the Washington City Paper reported last week, the Tacos el Chilango restaurant is expected to open at some point next month at 1119 V Street NW, in a storefront once occupied by an Italian restaurant. Truck co-owner Jesus Santacruz tells that his brother, Juan, will be running the restaurant, while he continues to run the truck.

The truck, located at 14th Street N. and N. Queen Street, near Route 50, will remain open Monday through Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Though the aging taco truck may not look like an acclaimed eatery to the casual observer, the authentic Mexican fare it serves has earned it praise from foodies, and a rare five star overall review on Yelp.
