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

When I checked in my hotel room in San Francisco , there was a traveler's magazine which highly suggested the "la Taqueria " restaurant for lunch . Later the same day I asked some locals about a very good place to eat and they suggested the same restaurant . I went . There was a long line of about 30-35... More

I grew up in the Mission/Potrero area of San Francisco and have been going here since the 1970's. It was the best then and it still is the best now. My family loves the carnitas burrito. This place has been voted the best in so many magazines the last 30 years and I have to agree. One of the reasons... More

Portions are big so for the european palate, stay with the regular. No coffee but thats ok, what they do , they do well, so Coffee... More

It's a friendly establishment that has been there a very long time. Since they won the best burrito in the nation (I do not think it is), the lines are horrendous. The owner is very friendly but you can expect to wait 45-60 mins on a weekend from waiting in line until you can leave with your take out burrito... More

This place offers great authentic and affordable Mexican food. Because of that, the queue can be rather long so try not to go during peak hours. The restaurant is very laid back and casual. It's more like fast food Mexican, actually. I highly recommend that you try their tacos - they are just amazing. I was kind of disappointed with... More
