These tacos are usually the best and are often referred to as pinche tacos.Both locations are open 11am to 8:30pm Monday to Saturday. Closed Sunday.

I absolutely loved this place. Being Mexican it is always nice to see an authentic place. I recommend the barbacoa and yes, it is supposed to be greasy. The horchata was also very good.

This is definitely a place for quick eating. There are only a few tables and generally a very long queue outside! The queue helped me as it gave me time to decide what to have. We ended up getting a selection of 8 tacos - less than 20 dollars in total. I definitely recommend the pork "Al Pastor" and the... More

We saw amazing reviews on this place and had to check it out. Let me start by saying "AH-MAZE-ING" we walked in and were greeted by the super friendly guy behind the counter. I guess he could tell we have never been so he suggested we get the 4 taco for 9.50. Now normally that's way too much food but... More

It seems like every flavour combination on top of their corn tortillas are spot on. They offer both meat and vegetarian options. Can't beat 4 fresh and flavourful tacos for 10 bucks. Would recommend the pollo mole and pescado. Pile on some pickled cabbage and peppers and you're good to go! Not only is the food amazing, but the staff... More

First of all keep in mind this is a small operation, with a handful of tables & counters, serving a limited menu of small, soft tacos. Don't go expecting a full restaurant - go expecting a quick tasty bite and you'll be happy. As you wait in line to place your order, you can see the people prepping the food... More

This is an obviously popular restaurant, we arrived 45 minutes before closing and right after ordering, people started pouring in. I can see why. The food is very tasty and quick to arrive. What more can you want. We sampled beef, pork, fish and vegetarian between the two of us and liked them all. Our favorites were the carnitas and... More

I'm a local so I frequent La Taqueria as much as I can. I highly recommend this place as much for the food as the atmosphere. I hope all visitors to Vancouver try them out.
