Description: Tacolicious is by no means a traditional taqueria-you won't find burritos here. What started out in the summer of 2009 as a little taco stand at the Thursday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market with a fittingly frivolous name, has become a sit-down, cocktail-driven restaurant, 120 tequilas strong. Tacos anchor a menu that extends to dishes such as beet salad with grapefruit and pumpkin seeds, tuna tostadas, grilled squid served Veracruz-style, albondigas, shrimp a la diabla, and toasted coconut flan. Like many native Californians, Mexican food is in us. Though we grew up traveling to Mexico regularly (and still do), it took a trip to Mexico City-where the food is served in settings as sophisticated and urban as you'll find anywhere in the world-for us to realize that tacos don't have to be relegated to street food or a corner mom-'n'-pop. We're proud to be based in San Francisco, a town where the words local, sustainable and organic have become so redundant that they make you want to yawn. But just in case you were wondering about our menu: The answer is almost always, "Yes, yes and yes."

Never disappointed with the great food bites here. Mexican meets modern with always some creative fun options to traditional tacos. Awesome salsas and cheese dip. They have some fun drinks with my favorite being a good old Michelada with Negra Modelo. Great Staffa d fun atmosphere. Good times.

Good and fast service and good execution of a simple menu and concept -- family style tacos. Abundant dip and chips. Tasty sauces. Outstanding guacamole! We live nearby and will be back.

We stopped at the location in the Marina and what a treat! Enrique was an attentive and talented barkeeper. We ordered a plate of tacos to share and they were quite good. I will certainly return when I'm in SF. Good atmosphere as well.

High end, creative tacos - and related foods. Best to enjoy this place with at least a few other folks, so that you can get the discounts and pass things around.

Was in San Francisco for a few days, and visited the Tacolicious on Valencia St based on a recommendation. We weren't disappointed. Started with some pre-dinner cocktails which were delicious. There were six of us so we shared some starters and pitchers of margaritas, and all had a combination of tacos. Highly recommend, great food, great cocktails and very reasonably... More

My husband and I stopped here for a bite to eat. Fantastic chips and salsa. Tacos were good and prices reasonable. Very small place but did not have to wait long for a seat.

We loved the food from the fresh salsa that accompanied the tortilla chips to the delicious taco toppings. We particularly liked the beef topping but would happily eat the others too - we also sampled the beer chicken, chorizo and potato and cod. Margaritas were strong and plentiful and the bill was reasonable. What's not to love?!

What a great neighborhood restaurant! Nice selection of tacos and great prices. We ordered the sampler platter and it was more than enough for 2 people! Very busy in here and lots of noise, but we loved it and would definitely go back.

Before heading to our hotel we stopped here for a quick lunch. The taco were very very good! We ordered 6 tacos (each different), a tuna tostada and a tomato salad. Everything was great! The margarita variety was huge. They were tasty and refreshing, just the right amount of tequila, apparently good tequila as the waitress said. The service was... More
