For those Taco & Burrito enthusiasts that wanna taste the Real McCoy in Chicano dishes I suggest ya shun the Americanized fare at Taco Bell and give the La Taqueria on 25th Street in the Mission District, San Francisco a taste test. They serve unabashed knock your socks off burritos and tacos. La Taqueria isn’t much to look at and... More

Carne Asada burrito is world class! Two in our party are not big fans of burritos, and they both loved their choices here (one pollo and one carnitas). Service was fast, but getting drinks took two trips. A must stop if you want to eat the burrito that inspired Chipotle, Moe's and others.

We loved our carne asada taco and we really enjoyed our carnitas taco. We also wolfed down an order of chips and salsa with avocado. For our beverages we had horchata, fresca, pina, and mango fruit juices (we highly recommend the mango fruit juice). It was reasonably priced and the line moved well.

They say they have the best taco and burrito in the whole world. I can't say for sure since I haven't been everywhere yet (but it's on my list). I can say without a doubt, the Carne Asada Burrito was the best I have ever had. It was hands down my favorite meal on the trip and worth the trip... More

I've live in SF on and off for 25 years, and worked right around the corner from LaTaqueria. This is a great spot. It's quick, clean and the food is great. My favorite is the Carnitas taco, with cheese. Do you self a favor and check it out. Easy access even from downtown via Bart. Obviously there are a lot... More

Walking by this place we could tell right away it was going to be good, first of all it was packed, second of all it was mostly Mexicans lining up for their tacos and burritos so it had to be good right? Yup, sure was! Don't let the assembly-line format put you off here, they do a high volume at... More

I'd consider myself a bit of a burrito fiend so I so I'm comparing it against a lot of others when I say it was one of the best burritos I've ever eaten! I originally saw the La Taqueria on Man vs Food and have since seen countless positive reviews of it. The meat was delicious and the burrito itself... More

...closed for the day and I ended up elsewhere that didn't measure up. This placed opened in about 1975(?) and it has consistently met my expectations! This is THE, and only THE Taqueria in San Francisco, CA! Nowhere else do you get the punch of the simplicity of Mexican food, without all the creepy fluff most other taquerias come up... More

There are many Taqueria to choose from and you can't go wrong with La Taqueria in Mission. It gets crowded at dinner time and you may not find seating however the prices and flavors will compensate. It's also an interesting place to people watch as you get a heady mix of tourists and locales coming in for their Mexican fix.

Don't expect those over sized 2 LBS burritos here... They are well portioned with a lot of flavor. The whole beans and fresh salsa give them a unique taste.
