Super Tacos & Bakery (same place, used to be called Tacos Pepitos Bakery 2), 1762 Columbia Road NW, Washington, DC, 202-232-7121 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [WaPo | Yelp]
Maybe the most authentic Mexican place in DC right now. They are really trying. Tacos and classic Mexican dishes of all sorts. It is a bakery and sandwich place as well; they have all the classic sandwiches you can get in Mexico City. They have huaraches too. Not perfect but pretty good. Excellent for snacking. Opens at 8 in the morning. A sign of progress. Lots of take out and some stools.

I went here for lunch on Thursday. Had three tacos (carnitas, beef, and al pastor) and a Jarritos. The carnitas was the best–juicy and tender. The beef was a bit dry, and the pork was too fatty. Overall, it was pretty good, but not as good as Taqueria D.F. when it’s got its game face on.
I didn’t try the baked goods–no room–but they and the crazy selection of international-ish tortas looked great. I’ll come back here on a weekend to try them, along with the chilaquiles and posole.
