Cheap, fast, delicious

I was in South San Fran for a business trip and needed a quick bite to eat and found this location. The food was very tasty and I got a lot for my money. The staff was great too. Next time I visit the area, I will definitely be back.

When you walk in this modest restaurant, you'll notice the awards for "Most Authentic Mexican Cuisine"....and those aren't a joke. The food is authentically prepared, no pretentiousness, no muss, no fuss. Just simple food prepared simply, and the result is simply delicious. Be warned - the portions are quite generous. I way over-ordered, and the food was so good I... More

From the outside it is small and unassuming. Inside you order before you find a table. The kitchen appears cramped and the overhead menu sign shabby. But the food was hot, plentiful and delcious. Large portions made from fresh ingredients and friendly staff makes this place a gem. And the "mild" red sauce is truly mild.

I've been going to La Morena Taqueria for years. The food is always fresh and delicious. The Owner takes pride in the food he serves, and I'm happy to bring friends and work associates here for lunch, or pick up food for dinner on the way home. My favorite is the Quesadilla Zuisa!!! Would definitely recommend La Morena Taqueria for... More

Haven't been to the actual restaurant but we ordered the food for an office party. Food was very fresh, tasty and there was more than enough food leftover, so they do give a very good amount. Will definitely order from this restaurant again and do plan to visit the restaurant.

We found this on TripAdvisor. Small place real plain atmosphere which I like. You place your order at the counter and they will bring you your meal when it's ready. Wevtsljed with folks in line. All locals that bragged on the food. All of the ingredients were fresh and very tasty! Definitely good place to eat

I had the Super Burrito, steak and green verde, and my wife had the Green Verde Plate; easily enough food for three. The green sauce and the jalapeño really complimented burrito. If I am ever back in this area I will stop in again.

According to the TA reviews, we were looking forward to an authentic Mexican family-style place for great value. La Morena met our budget hopes, nice and affordable, but missed the mark on food. The chips were so stale we couldn't eat them (maybe just an old batch?), kind of took away from the pretty good guacamole. The super burrito split... More

La Morena is a little hole in the wall neighbourhood Mexican restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food. Normally, whenever I go to a taqueria, I'd order their al pastor to determine how tasty the rest of their fare will be, and by far, La Morena had the best al pastor around. The service is nice for a small taqueria, but... More

Checked this place out from the reviews and was not disappointed! It was late on a Tuesday night so we had the place to ourselves. You order then sit. I asked for a recommendation and accepted a 'wet' super burrito - it was fantastic!! And HUGE. She gave me two sauces and both were spicy and flavourful. The nachos were... More
