I was here a couple years ago and thought it was pretty good so when we wanted to go out near 30th Street station, I recommended Distrito. It was okay but not as good as I remembered. We tried to poutine and it was almost...More

We went here for tacos and margaritas. It was good, but not the type of place I would normally seek out. The food and drinks were okay, but not memorable.

Quirky yet charming. With the booth inside an old-school VW bug or the table with porch swings, Distrio showed us unexpected delights from our entrance to to our entrees.

I had a cancelled flight and only hotel available was in the cool Universal City area. Front Desk person recommended this spot, so gave a try at 930P. I’d agree with some of the previous reviews...I also felt like the price just quite didn’t justify...More

Fun atmosphere. Reasonable service. All of the food we had was good, but nothing spectacular. Fajita servings were relatively small. Mexican Poutine is definitely worth trying. Citywide is served with tequila.
