What’s the best new addition to D.C.’s tacosphere?

(Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post )

District Taco. Mama Chuy. Bandolero. El Chucho (its Al Pastor tacos pictured above). Crios. All have opened in the city since December, and there’s more on the way with the opening of Tacos El Chilango’s brick and mortar location just north of U Street.

“Finally, a Great D.C. Taco Spot?” a Young & Hungry post wondered of El Chilango on Monday, a supposition that elevates the hype surrounding the new endeavor while also accepting that every other taco proprietor in the city is sub-great.

We weren’t so sure, so we figured we’d ask you what you thought of the wave of nouveau taquerias: Do any of them qualify as great? If you’ve been to El Chilango, does the physical version match the expectations set by the Arlington-based mobile version? (Keep in mind that while we love us some Taqueria Distrito Federal, Pica Taco and Juquilita, we’re only interested in the new, D.C.-based places for the moment.)
