Delicious, fast and we'll priced food. Turn up early! We had heard about this place from friends. It was definitely worth the trip from across town.

Get there early or be ready to wait in line, but well worth it! Located in the Mission District of San Fran. They are known for their burritos and we weren't disappointed! Small and intimate family run business. At times, standing room only. We shared a table and conversation with a local which made it even better!

The food was amazing, and really filling. The owner talked to us, and he's basically the best guy on the planet. He really gave all the girls with us a rose, and more than enough reason to come back. Get there early if you want to beat the rush, because practically everybody already knows about this place.

Always worth a visit. The very best tacos and burritos in San Francisco, in my humble opinion. Wide variety of fillings and meats. All are tasty. Quick service. The Queen of the Mission District.

I have been to the DF twice and La Taqueria reminded me of one of the places you see there with long lines and locals looking for good food. I had the carne asana tacos and it was almost as good as the best ones I had in the DF at street stands.

This is a great place to get a classic Mission style burrito. The portions are huge, the taste is fantastic, and there are options for everyone. I've always had good meals here, even though I've had to wait in a long line for one on several occasions. Street parking is a challenge, arrive on foot via bart if possible. It's... More

I have coming here for over 30 years. I have had quesadillas, tacos, burritos and they have been delicious all those years. Service can however be a mess. Sometimes rude and they don't always get your order right. But I love the food soooo much I go thru it. Parking is not good. Public transportation is a great option.

Ordered a taquito and it was quite large. Seemed like there was a full chicken breast in just one taquito. Heads up they didn't take credit cards!

My husband and I ate here on a recent trip to San Francisco because he had read that this was one of the best burritos in America. The line was extremely long, even at 3:00 in the afternoon. The burrito, however, was worth it! Very tasty and authentic. We both asked for no beans, however, it made the burrito a... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
