Great, affordable eats in East Van

This place has delicious food (and white wine sangria!) for very good prices. The menu offers plenty of options for different food concerns, particularly vegetarians. It is located close to transit and has a cozy vibe. Highly recommend.

Fast pace place and to keep it going go directly to the cash register and get the little paper menu and go back when you know what it is your going to have. Very authentic with tongue, cheek and brisket and awesome vegetarian tacos as well and it's a healthier choice of fast food when time can interfere with urban... More

I'm always looking for a good tacos place in Canada, once by accident I found "la taqueria" during a business travel to Vancouver and by far are the best tacos in Canada! They taste 100% Mexican, fresh ingredients and the best selection of fills for your taco experience

I cannot say enough about this place so I won't say a lot but I suggest you visit if you're in Vancouver. The tacos are amazing and everything tastes so fresh you won't want to stop eating, even once you're full. I visit Vancouver twice a year and always have to make a stop here. Try it for yourself.

They make the best tacos I've ever had, period. They had a special with potatoes and other stuff and it blew my mind. Go to la taqueria.

La Taqueria just opened a small place on Welch Street in North Vancouver and we've eaten there twice now. The food is excellent and the flavours are delicious! There is a wide variety of tacos and we've enjoyed every one we've tried. Can't wait to go back for more!

I knew this place had to be good. After all, it's sanctioned by María la madre de Jesús herself. For some, this is just a place to have lunch -- for me this was church. The Jesús wall clock served as further evidence that this taquería was in fact the real deal. I must have had at least three epiphanies... More

Try the vegetarian choices. They are delicious. I'm sure the rest are too but I'm very fond of the cream corn taco.

Holy smokes, I cannot say enough positive about La Taqueria. We have eaten here MANY times. We always order a mix of tacos and share. The service is always quick and friendly, have yet to try any taco I didn't like there, and the beer is cold!

Their food is better than most of what I ate in Mexico. Love stopping by here--never a bad meal. The only downside is both locations are super busy and it's hard to get a spot.
