Welcome to El Techo 

Your escape from D.C. without having to get on a flight!


El Techo is the latest venture by the creators of Rito Loco.  Highlighted by the characteristics that made our food truck so popular.  Everything is homemade on our 72 person roof deck.  Our cocktails can be spicy, the tacos, savory and the tented and heated roof is always cozy!!!

By using the freshest ingredients, making everything from scratch daily one can always ensure the drinks and food will leave you begging for more!  One will find that no single item is the star of the show, but the food, drinks, atmosphere, music, staff and the patrons make for an experience like no other in D.C.

Some of our most popular items....

and our design!!!


I really don’t want to write this review because I want this spot all to myself 😂 A rooftop bar with warm, rustic wood motifs and a beautiful ceiling covered in hanging flowers. The basic margarita is delicious and abundant, tacos were great (rib and chicken were my favorites) and they have a really good and mild salsa verde that comes with it. Also, surprisingly warm for a rooftop bar in the middle of winter.

Beautiful space (even when it was cold out there are heaters and it's cozy !) with realty interesting drinks.
For example, I had a Bloody Mary that was crafted from an in-house recipe that starts with fresh produce as the base!

We absolutely enjoyed our evening at El Techo ! We met the owner who explained the menu. We started with margaritas which were incredible and the nachos were great. We also enjoyed the paella and the fish and avocado tacos. The roof top setting (heated in winter) was a welcome change to the ho-hum dining areas of old.
I am recommending El Techo to all!
