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."

We actually visited the Union Street location of the same group but can't find that location listed here. We enjoyed a great chipotle taco if the day, fried cod tacos, and the braised short rib tacos. All very tasty and fresh. Super fresh salsa and chips and a table in the sidewalk on a sunny day is great people watching!

My wife and I dined here one evening. We sat outdoors since they have infrared heaters over the tables that kept us nice and toasting on a breezy cool San Francisco night. I had read the reviews and was looking forward to some great food. I have to say that the guacamole dip was the highlight of the evening. The... More

Delicious mini tacos. They were packed with lots of favour! Good service as well. The atmosphere was relaxing.

I'm not a huge Mexican food fan so my experience may have been colored by that fact. But I stand by the title of the review. The North Beach area of SF is crammed full of places to eat and I believe there must be many, many better choices! I had a Mexican breakfast of churizo and huevos and it... More

Hubby and I spent all day hiking through the Muir Forest and were looking for a local casual place. We stumbled on heaven! Awesome vibe, fresh food and friendly staff! The salsa was to die for too! Not overly hot, but you could taste the fresh produce! We both had tacos and they are very generous with their meat portions!... More

The food was great, drinks were excellent. Staff was great. Not sure if the one person we talked to was the night manager or owner or good bar tender but he really knew his stuff when it came down to baseball, food, beer, etc. The 10 taco tasting thing they do is great for variety and getting a feel for...

Definitely worth a visit. 4 tacos for $14, very tasty and very fresh. Great ambiance - previous guests include Obama himself. Kind of a youngish crowd but we went with a 4 year old and were as welcome as the rest.

It is easy to walk by this restaurant, but if you have the address, stop in for a fun and tasty lunch. Yes, some very traditional Mexican cooking but from tacos on down, including guacamole--quite excellent-the preparation make takes a few twists and turns which results in a fresh and satisfying experience. So, really, slow down and find this restaurant.... More

Very, verrrry good food. However, the wait was foreverlong. Unaccustomed as we are with having to make reservations (because we are Norwegian Potatoes), we thought we could just drop in on a SATURDAY NIGHT. Stuupid. We got a table though, after about an hour. I have never waited for a table that long before, but it was worth it. It... More

While visiting the Marina disctrict I decided to stop here for lunch. The crispy shrimp cakes was the dish from the menu that caught my attention so I decided to give it a try. It came with jalapenos and pineapple salsa and the whole turned out as a very good mixes of tastes. I was satisfied overall.
