Best fish tacos this side of the Appalachians hands down...

And I've lived in Cali and on the Mexican border.

Haven't had a decent fish taco outside of Cali until this place.

yea district taco. Their barbacoa is legit and their fish tacos are amazing. Definitely authentic and a good story of how a small business can still succeed in this world if it has a great product.

Very very good tacos. District Taco on Columbia Pike makes some good ones, too.

Didn't they use sliced cheese instead of shredded cheese? I can't even imagine what the Dorito's tacos would be like. Messy is probably a good word for them.

The one thing that is surprising is how difficult it is to find good Mexican food here. I haven't been impressed yet by any of the choices my husband has found.

To have good Mexican food you need Mexicans, particularly from border towns. We don't have many of those folks here. I feel like starting a recruiting program.

I've been there. Picante is Tex-Mex and the employees are Central American, not border Mexican. It was meh. We've covered this before.
