Anyone who enjoys all-day breakfast has likely heard of Commissary DC, but their offering of the best tacos in DC is equally as likely to attract new patrons. Their fish tacos feature peach Pico and purple cabbage, but there are also grilled burgers, baked mac & cheese, filet medallions and thin crust pizza for those with different cravings. There’s an eclectic array of décor – ranging from nautical to international – but it’s the everyday Happy Hour, extensive alcohol selection, delicious smoothies and casual ambiance that will grab most people’s attention.

Located inside The Darcy and offering an interactive and shareable dining experience, Gerrard Street Kitchen is truly something special.

All-you-can-eat brunch, bottomless cocktails and the unlimited tapas experience could stand on their own in attracting guests to Toro Toro. Insanely enough, this isn’t where the greatness ends. They also offer a Pan Latin twist on contemporary tapas, and there are a variety of Central and South American flavors to choose from. Their flour tortillas loaded with tempura fish constitute some of the best tacos in DC, and they're enjoyed surrounded by one of the most unique dining areas in the city. Neon lights, livestock skulls along the walls, cow-hide bar seating and a visually exhilarating bar are just a few of the perks.

With a name like Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab, it seems pretty obvious what the eatery would offer. Fortunately, this includes grilled mahi tacos with avocado, tomatillo salsa and jicama slaw. In addition to this and the restaurant's namesakes, guests can enjoy a wide variety of chicken, salads, sandwiches and soups. Just as exciting as the menu, though, is the fine dining atmosphere. Luxury chandeliers, fine linen tablecloths, an array of professional photography and gorgeous marble columns create a high-end environment to enjoy a meal.

For those seeking a local DC experience, Morton's The Steakhouse probably isn’t the place to be. This brand prides itself on being America’s premier steakhouse group, but with some of the best tacos in DC, Morton’s certainly shouldn’t be missed. Both the short rib steak and tuna tacos are worth drooling over, but popular offerings like crab cakes, pork sliders, crispy chicken BLT and prime ribeye should also be experienced. The exquisite lighting, luxury seating, beautiful exterior views and variety of artwork create a true American steakhouse experience.

If someone can't decide between visiting an American steakhouse or a French bistro, BLT Steak DC is the place to be. The soft lighting, candlelit tables, expansive wall of wine and collection of foliage bring together the best of both worlds. The menu, however, has more of a Modern American appeal. There are a variety of raw bar selections, and guests also enjoy NY strips, Wagyu ribeye, seafood platters and a soft pretzel board. Their avocado tacos are a unique and distinct take on the best tacos in DC, but they’re certainly worth a try during Happy Hour.

There were no brew pubs in America's capitol since Prohibition, but Capitol City Brewing changed this in 1992. This is a great Downtown location to enjoy a large selection of hand-crafted beer, and it also doesn't hurt that they offer some of the best tacos in DC. Guests can get fish tacos either fried or grilled, and if they’re craving something different, there are delicious offerings like flat iron steak, jambalaya, black bean burgers and porter bratwurst. The intricate overhead lighting, neon-lit columns, old-school art and vast collection of televisions creates a fun environment inside a DC classic.

For classic Mexican cuisine with a bit of contemporary flair, MXDC Cocina Mexicana is the place to be. It's only one block away from the White House, and those visiting with family and friends will love the family-style dishes. Anyone riding solo or in small groups will also have a variety of options, and these include quesadillas, enchiladas, ceviche and many other south-of-the-border classics. Of course, this includes some of the best tacos in DC – with at least nine varieties. The eatery bucks the traditional Latin décor and created more of a contemporary lodge-like space.

The various types of foliage, chic artwork, live music and contemporary flamboyance inside of Proper 21 resemble a New York City establishment. As it turns out, that’s because The Big Apple is where the concept was born. This eatery offers a variety of contemporary American dishes, and this means everything from chicken wings and meatball eggrolls to Mom's Meatloaf and ginger salmon. Those who think they have had the best tacos in DC might change their mind after trying Proper 21’s charred veggie variety, but even if they don’t, the discounted tacos on Margarita Monday are worth the trip.

Lovers of microbrews can be found at City Tap House on any given night. They have over 40 draughts in addition to a bottle collection any bar would envy. In addition to their local, national and international brew offerings, they also serve up some of the best tacos in DC. Their Korean short rib variety must be experienced to be believed, and true fans will always show up Monday for Taco Night. The roped chandeliers, exposed ductwork, distressed wood and touches of iron create a rugged appearance for those weary from the road.

Those who want more of an experience than a dinner cannot miss the opportunity to visit The Hamilton. Their cuisine includes charcuterie, sushi and a variety of both regional and seasonal American fare. This obviously includes grilled fish tacos, but guests also sing praises for the shrimp & grits, falafel, Atlantic salmon and BBQ brisket burger. Whether guests get the best tacos in DC or one of the other delectable offerings, though, they’ll always enjoy the live music and entertainment. The elegant chandeliers, modern art pieces and vintage style may be impressive, but it rarely detracts from what’s happening on stage.
