Description: Offering authentic Mexican tacos in the heart of Downtown Vancouver.We make our tacos from traditional recipes with local, organic and sustainable products, when possible.Our menu offers different types of fillings which can be served as a Taco (soft tortilla, made locally) or as a Quesadilla.La Taqueria is born in 2009, through the idea of creating a pinche taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. 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.

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.

La taqueria fulfilled my expectations. I wanted something fast that i didnt have to wait too long for. The menu was really cheap, tacos were $2.50 a piece and you could get four for under 10 dollars. And mind you, the tacos were filling! I had the four for $10 and really liked the taco de lengua and carnitas.

Really quick and amazingly tasty food served in a cool little eat in and take away shop. If I was local, I would definitely become a regular.

Seen this place on my urban cruising but was always closed when leaving town but when a friend who's Mexican told me to try La Taqueria if you like authentic, so I made a point and awesome. I've only had the four vegi tacos so far but will be back to finish the menu.

Great Tacos. They're small one's so you can get a variety of tacos instead of one big expensive one. They're around $2 per taco and I got 4 different ones. They were all tasty. They have a sauce area so you can put on the level of spice you can handle. They have glasses of water because they know you'll... More

After living in Vancouver for 24 years and avoiding Mexican restaurants because they were not quite authentic, and I have better Mexican food at home, I've finally found a taco place that is better than most . . . even in Mexico! Yes, the difference is that these tacos are made from the best locally-sourced raw materials. Even vegans can... More

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
