LOVE the Taqueria! I order the 'special' of 4 meat tacos of your choice for $9.50 and usually get beef, pork, chicken and fish. There are also vegetarian selections which cost less. I recently brought my daughter here for lunch for the first time. She loved it too! The corn tortillas they use are so good, and they double them... More

If you want a quick, delicious lunch that is also great value (less than $10 for 4 tacos) then you can't do better than La Taqueria. These guys are passionate about what they're serving, and it comes across in the fun atmosphere and bold flavours. They only serve tacos and quesadilla, but really, what else could you need? Wash it... More

I went to this location after trying their food truck and spending the next 5 days thinking about tacos :). The W. Hastings location is quite small and mainly offers counter space, so you should try to go outside their peak hours if you want to sit there to inhale your tacos. I went around 2pm on a week day...

Everytime my gf and I travel, we look for taco places. My gf never liked tacos. This is the restaurant that changed her mind. Everything we had was really good. The prices were ridiculously good for what you had.

Fantastic, authentic taco shop in the gaslight area --- don't miss the braised beef cheeks (yes, beef cheeks).

A friend of mine suggested this place a while ago. It's on Cambie and Broadway and I'd seen it a hundred times driving by but it didn't speak to me. But I'm alway up for new things and my friend is usually a decent judge. So we went. Inside it has a distinctly Mexican decor in a campy kinda way.... More

This time I went with wife and family since this is the highest rated Mexican restaurant in Vancouver and we were curious.We went for lunch and ordered only tacos. The... More

We tried their tacos after reading a review on TripAdvisor. Our 2 favorite are the "Tinga De Pollo" and "Pescado." The Tinga De Pollo is chicken with chorizon in a chipotle tomato sauce, topped with Mexican cheese and sour cream. The Pescado is grilled fish with pico de gallo. We tred a few others, but these were our favorites. The... More
