Endless tacos at Distrito representative?

KMcGrew | Oct 19, 2010 10:39 AM

I went to Distrito for the first time last night for their Monday Night Football special. (Unlimited tacos and enchiladas in the cantina for $25.) I'd intended this to be a wallet-friendly way to test the restaurant to see if I'd want to come back for a full tasting menu, and I was pretty disappointed in this trip. The tortillas weren't warm. The enchiladas were overwhelmed by the salsas. The black beans and rice were over-salted. The crab in the crab enchiladas reminded me of bad supermarket crab cakes where bell pepper overwhelms the sweetness of the crab. (Desserts, which we ordered separately, were good.)

I'm still not entirely ready to give up, though. I don't know whether they just didn't put their best foot forward because they figured we weren't "real" customers, or if the tacos just generally aren't the strongest part of the menu. Has anyone else been to Distrito for a regular meal and this promotion?
