Love this neighborhood Taqueria!!

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!!!

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

I eat here when I am in the area on business. I get my orders to go and eat in my hotel room. The food is always hot and well prepared. The bean and cheese burrito is fantastic!

We were on our way out of San Francisco and staying near the airport and came across these great reviews. What fantastic flavors! I'm not going to comment on whether it's "authentic" Mexican or not, but the tacos, burritos and enchiladas were all fantastic. This is what all fast food should be like.

Stopped on the way home fron San Francisco at the recommendation of my cousin and I was not disappointed! I ordered the Carnitas plate, and by the time I was done the plate was spotless! It was so good that I want to make the 30 mile drive again this week to eat there again! I definitely recommend to anyone... More
