El Centro DF is a lively taqueria and tequileria from celebrity chef Richard Sandoval. Sangria Sundays, Nacho Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Margarita Wednesdays, Latin Music Thursdays and bottomless brunch on the weekends make this a larger-than-life destination every day of the week. Inside, a chic dining room with different shades of wood panels and hip metal taco holders will keep your meal stylish and clean.


El Centro DF is one of many conveniently located restaurants in Georgetown, just a five-minute walk from the hotel and waterfront. It’s located right next to the Apple Store and other outlets on Wisconsin Avenue including UGG Australia, Ralph Lauren, Loft and Vineyard Vines.

What to Try

El Centro DF does one of the best traditional guacamoles in town using a nice balance of cilantro, chile serrano, onion and tomato. If you want to pump things up, order the Guacamole Supremo, which comes with bacon, roasted corn, queso fresco and pumpkin seeds.

Moving to the main course, tacos are the way to go. Order up a variety across the table and be sure to pass and trade with friends and family. The crispy shrimp is a popular options with house made Mexican slaw, grilled pineapple salsa and chipotle aioli. Another show-stopper is the pipian pork belly tacos, which come with charred pork belly, pipian sauce and pickled vegetables.

Lastly, close out your meal with something extra sweet. The banana tres leches is our favorite with passion fruit sauce and toasted soft meringue.
