Best burrito EVER!

We walked about 5 miles to find this place after reading that they served the best burrito's in San Fran - and the reviews were not wrong! The walk and the long line up were both worth it - honestly the best vegetarian burrito I have ever eaten.

This restaurant does not need to advertise. It's all word of mouth. It opens at 11am and by 1pm, the line is out the door and down the street. It's a small place, but does have outside seating. It's no frills but great food. Soft pork tacos are #1 and are hard to wrap your hands around. There is so... More

We were craving tacos/burritos in SF and decided to hit this place up. I loved that as a vegetarian I could easily find a delicious taco and my husband had the chicken burrito and the pork tacos. He said that the pork was so delicious, he wishes he would have had it in both! Can't wait to go back!

Food here is a step up from other very good taqueria options in San Francisco. The only knock against the place is the long (but fast moving) lines, crowded tables (but obtainable), and difficulty finding parking around the neighborhood.

La taqueria is located in Mission street and 24th. The place is not too big, but the atmosphere is great. Awesome tacos for a very reasonable price (8-11 USD). They also had live Mexican music and the service was very nice to us. I would be back.

Yes, the super burrito was great. Long, chaotic lines though. Had a chicken burrito, super tasty. Sauce was really good in particular. Cash only too.

I go to SF 1-2x a year. My usual itinerary: Land in SFO, hop in the rent-a-car and head straight to LA TAQUERIA. I've been doing this for nearly 20 years now. I absolutely love this place and as mentioned in my other Mexican food reviews, I am an expert in Mexican food having grown up on the stuff my... More

Very affordable Mexican food. Nice environment. Crowded but crew working very fast, so no waiting times. Food was very good and it was an experience visiting La Taqueria. Would really recommend this place!

Supposed to go to early Christmas dinner at fancy place a mile away, but they were too busy to take us. Fortunately, for us...walked over to La Taqueria and now leaving happy and with full bellies (and a much better price than the fancy place we were supposed to go to!). This is a very busy place, which makes sense... More

Staying in Mission District

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.
