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.

I have been eating at La Tapatia for years! The burritos are so good and BIG! The Carnitas is the best I have ever had anywhere and the Chile Rellenos are huge! I highly recommend to everyone I know!

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

The tacos are as authentic as you will find. As always, I was disappointed in the pastor as they cannot duplicate the exquisite flavors in Mexico and the pork was especially greasy. However, they pile on the meat to their tacos and you will find many Latinos frequent this spot. The carne asada and fried taco were terrific. There is... More

I knew the food was going to be good judging by the smell when you walk into this place. We ordered three carnitas burritos and they were huge!!! No kidding, I had a hard time finishing it one sitting. And they're inexpensive too.

When you walk into a tiny little tienda/take-out restaurant and there are 15 people ahead of you, you KNOW the food is going to be good! I wasn't disappointed! I had a regular carnitas burrito that was, I have to say, one of the best I've ever eaten. Go here!
