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

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).
