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."

Food was great! We had the corn and two tacos each- I had cod and vegetarian and my partner had beef cheek and carnitas and we enjoyed them all. The tacos were stuffed and we were surprised at how filling they were! The complimentary tortilla chips and salsa were also yummy and our server was great. We sat outside and... More

My sister and I stopped by after a long day of sightseeing. Fast service, a good glass of not-too-sweet sangria, and steak tacos absolutely hit the spot. Two tacos each was plenty for us, but then, we did eat the chips and salsa that came with our drinks. It isn't fancy or fussy, just really good.

We visited both Tacolicious's locations whilst in San Fran following a recommendation. One is located in Mission, which is really hard to find, as it doesn't have a clear sign (look for the taco logo) and one in Washington Square. Both venues had excellent food. We ordered a mix of tacos, we found 4 each to be more than enough,... More

While on vacation we stopped at a Tacolicious (but do not recall which location). We sampled most all of the tacos, ceviche and guacamole. It was all great. And, the chips and Margaritas were de-licious!!! Stop on in! You will not be disappointed!!!! If you need transportation... DON'T TAKE A CAB! Download an app called 'Lyft'. We used this service...

Stumbled in after walking past and seeing how good everyone's plates looked out on the sidewalk! Food was very good, salsa was amazing, but waiter was either non-existent or very slow. We were there 15 minutes before happy hour and he wouldn't give the margarita special price. Not even if we waited the 15 minutes to order them. Really? Short... More

Stopped by here for a late night bite to eat. It was packed and very loud inside but we got a nice table outside. I highly recommend the made to order guacamole. All our food was good and service was quick.

Myself, wife, and three boys (13-7) went after a rec from the folks at cow hollow motor inn. Outside seating at six or so 2 person tables but despite the sun it was a little cool so we ate inside at a nice corner booth. Great booth for kids. Margaritas were 10.50 but a good value as they were mixed... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant stopping by on by on a Sunday afternoon. We were thrilled to get seated at a table looking out on to the street, which is always a plus for people watching. We ordered 4 tacos, 2 carnitas and 2 braised ribs, which was more than enough to split. The drinks were great,... More
