This place is within 2 miles of our rental house. It came highly recommend and was worthy of praise. Chicken burrito, horchata and beef tacos are fantastic. Just beat the crowd and had place to sit but service was fast and people move though quick.

The place is super busy with a variety of people. Great food is served to all of the guests packed in to the dining area and on the street too, showing just how good it is. Recommended for a great burrito or taco.

Everyone raves about the Carne Asada burrito, and it is good, but the carnitas quesadilla is the best thing on the menu followed closely by the carnitas taco. It was crazy busy when we were there today and apparently has been that way for a couple weeks since it was on a TV show on the food network.

All the guides (inc. TA) say a Burrito in the the Mission is a must. La Taqueria is easy to find being on Mission Street just below 24th Street. Catching 14/14R bus from behind Bloomingdales and travelling though SOMA and Mission was sobering but leant to the whole experience. La Taqueria has a mix of locals, trades people and tourists...

They brag about being the best burrito in the world, but it's my number two burrito. This was super easy to find, just look for the only place on mission with a line out the door. They ordering process was long and they had you order with someone mid line, it's not rocket science now, burrito or taco, choose your... More

Great little restaurant with fun atmosphere! The line was long, but we ordered in about 15 minutes, then waited less than 10 for our food. Burritos were incredibly fresh and tasty. Use the "secret menu" and order yours "dorado." They'll grill your burrito and brown the tortilla.

Worth the trip. Make sure you don't mix this up with one of the other ones, there are several on Trip Advisor. You want the one on Mission.

This is a small restaurant and can get crowded, but that's because it's DELICIOUS. I had the salsa/chips, a taco, and aguas frescas. I also had the pleasure of sitting at the small bar outside overlooking where they prepare the food. Everything was so fresh. The salsa was great, and my taco was superb. I wanted to go back the...

This was once a great taqueria but due to the popularity and the cutting of corners the food has gone downhill. Many better places to get a great taco or buritto. Very overpriced and not close to the place it once was.

This place has (maybe) the best burritos in town ! The ingredients are very fresh and tasty, I don't doubt that the tacos are excellent as well. We went on a week day for lunch and the service was very fast. Price is ok.

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.
