Surprise, delicious!

Looking for an affordable and good meal. Take out style ordering. The food was excellent. Saw a lot of people in the establishment, means its got to be good, right? Well it was very good. Had a torta and bought some homemade tortilla chips, excellent.

Fresh carnitas, tortillas de Mano, and freshest avocados. They only take cash but have an ATM in the store. Always a line but well worth the wait. Difficult finding parking.

Burrito's are the best. Nacho's are also on the top of our list to buy. You will return once you have gone there once.

Whenever I visit family outside the SF Bay area, they always ask for food from La Tapatia!! I can bring food for dinner plus leftovers at a great price. Always delicious! The people working here are so nice and so efficient!

First meal on our honeymoon in town and we wanted something real. We really found it. We both had burritos and tamales. Both were amazing. The fun, lively atmosphere only set the stage. The staff was helpful and efficient. They made our food exactly as we requested. The price is as perfect as the food. Just be prepared, they are... More

Absolutely love the authentic Mexican food from La Tapatia in South San Francisco. Always go there to get all the ready made ingredients to make tacos. Something for everyone! This is not a sit down restaurant. It's more like a Mexican deli for take out. There is always a tremendous line during Christmas for their pepared masa for tamales.
