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

Order yourself a chicken burrito and an aqua fresca, and settle in for the 5 minutes it will take you to wolf it down, only to look up in embarrassment as other patrons are staring at you. Yes, it's that good!

We originally were going to another restaurant in the San Francisco/Valencia, but after our 2 mile walk, we were told the restaurant was closed for an emergency. We found La Taqueria on trip advisor and walked an additional 1.5 miles to get there. The walk was worth it! The soft tacos were delicious and fresh. The wait was short and... More

This place is always, always packed. Fast and friendly service and the food is spectacular. Go for the tacos. Their specialty is the fried quesadillas with chorizo (homemade chorizo). Simply to die for. Believe the hype. Cons: Place is small, so seating is limited. Pricey for fast food mexican but well worth it. Enjoy!

I ordered a chicken taco with extra sour cream, avocado & cheese and a beef burrito. Both were fantastic although slightly too much for one person. This was by no means refined but excellent for this sort of cuisine. For someone not used to the Mission area it was really fun to eat here and quite different from anything you'd... More
