Having explored Mission San Francisco de Asis and taken a walk around some of the lovely independent shops in the Mission District (including the fun 826 Valencia Pirate Supply Store) we succumbed to the heat and hopped on a bus to La Taqueria for lunch. When we arrived there was a queue around the restaurant and out the front door... More

Two of arrived for lunch at 11am (opening time) on a Tuesday, since our Saturday, 1pm visit found the place overrun with customers waiting in line. Within 10 minutes (the staff had a bit of set up left to do), we were in and had orders placed: two carnitas burritos, a tongue taco, a Tecate, and water. A short time... More

La Taqueria is a Mission District landmark. It is known for it's amazing super burritos. The tacos are superb! They are actually THE BEST tacos I've had at any restaurant.

My girl friend wanted to try La Taqueria after she heard they had the best burrito. So off we headed to La Taqueria. We arrived at 10:45am on a Friday. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our burritos to go. Now living in California I have had lots of burritos. This was the best. I had the pork... More

Best burritos we ever ate, the beef is awesome! You can have extras. To drink try the strawberry or watermelon juice, they are excellent too! The price is very sweet. Very good atmosphere in the restaurant.

Locals say this is the best burrito place in town and I think they might be right. Everything tastes very fresh and you have to make sure to try their special sauce that's located on every table. Definitely a great place to grab a quick lunch that's fast, cheap and satisfying.

So cheap and SOOOO delicious. It is a must stop on your trip in the Mission. You just might not be able to have just one taco though! We didn't wait that long as they are quick to get your order in and quick to hand you your tacos. We each got three with onions and the works and they... More

We took our kids to La Taqueria because I insisted that we go. It was a haul to get there and when we arrived it was crowded with no available seats. My husband and kids started to get cranky and I prepared myself for a disaster. After waiting in line and ordering our tacos and drinks a table for four... More

Came here while on vacation. Husband read about this place on 538's burrito bracket. The scene was a bit chaotic; there's not a good place to queue. We got a burrito, tacos, and chips with salsa and guac. Husband loved his burrito, and I liked my tacos, which were crispy, but they weren't amazing. The guac was good and the... More
