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

Quick, friendly service, delicious food. What more could you want? Go early for lunch, as we somehow avoided the line... on our way out from lunch, the line was loooooong. We used the BART to get here from downtown, and it was very quick and easy to get to. I would go with people, rather than solo, as there were... More

Got here right at opening and ordered the carnitas burrito with a side of chips and salsa. The burrito was full of mean, beans, cheese, and salsa; no filler (rice). The burrito was great, however needed a little hot sauce. I would recommend requesting that if you go. The chips and salsa were also tasty. I will try the guacamole... More

Hard to overstate how good La Taqueria is. A few things to know IMHO or IMAO (arrogant): First, get tacos here not burritos. The tacos come with salsa and beans. Yes, beans. Don't argue, don't leave them out. Just do it. Second, get them "crispy". Third, carne asada is freaking amazing. Chorizo too! With the carne asada I get it... More

My wife and I took our two kids and their spouses to the Bay Area for Thanksgiving. After walking around Chinatown, near Union Square, and a visit to the Westfield Mall on Market Street, we hopped on BART for a short ride to the Mission and 24th BART stop. My son had read a review that La Taqueria on Mission... More
