Taqueria del Barrio brings something new to Upshur Street… dinner reservations

Upshur Street in Petworth has become a destination for restaurants and retail, but some nights you need good luck to get a table at one of our highly rated places. It's easier if you have kids and do dinner at 5pm (best time to grab a table at Timber, by the way), but otherwise, it might be hard.

After being open a few weeks, Taqueria del Barrio (821 Upshur St NW) has decided to start offering reservations for dinner. They have new operating hours as well (opening at 4pm), with brunch and lunch coming in a few months. 

Their tacos and empanadas go for about $3 each, with entrees running $12-15. Definitely worth checking out, as this place has been packed since it opened, with good reason. Pretty good food, good atmosphere and service. Now, you can make reservations, too. 

Make a reservation by calling 202-723-0200 or emailing General Manager Mikey Torres.
