The burritos are great - made right in front of you. The portions are big, and the fat content is enough to either give you indigestion or a good nap (depending on your nature), but I have to admit, I had cravings for this stuff for a while. If you want a good burrito take out in SSF, I recommend... More

While it has been a while since I ate a La Tapatia, the food here is amazing! They have huge burritos for a reasonable price. Their carnitas are to die for! The carne asada is excellent too! While there is usually a line, it is worth the wait!

This is not only a Tortilla Factory, but it's a Taqueria and Mexicatessen too!! We have been going to La Tapatia for many years, and the quality has always been great. Whether you stop in for a burrito/taco/quesadilla, or just for all the makings to bring home, this is one of our very favorite places to pick up food for... More

This Restaurant is located near the Airport Marriott on the edge of the San Francisco Bay. Great views of the bay and the airport. Large menu and delicious food. Nice paved walking, jogging, bicycle path right outside to walk off some of the huge dinner portion you'll be served here! Wait staff is very good and food is delivered piping... More

Have been getting burritos at La Tapatia for almost 25-years, and nothing has changed (okay, price has gone up with the times - $5.50 - used to be around $3).. To my tastes, best in the Bay Area. I have found excellent burritos in the Mission; Alameda; Oakland; San Leandro; and many other places, but La Tapatia is my favorite... More

My boyfriend and I ended up here after being stuck in an airport hotel for a few days, craving some good Mexican food and hoping for no more than a 30 minute drive. We found this place on yelp, thought it looked promising, and headed over the next morning (just a few minutes from the airport), hoping to convince them... More

If you are in South City and need some food, need to pick something up for a party ( think Niners or Giants tailgate), come here!!! This is the real deal! The customers and employees are so friendly, we were made to feel we were life long members of the neighborhood.

We ate here on the day before we flew out of SFO. After reading the reviews we decided to get takeout from here. I had a great chicken super burrito and my wife liked the veggie burrito. Both were very filling. Our toddler loved their rice! The service was great -- we got the burritos quickly. And the value is... More
