Best Burrito worth a visit

This small local restaurant is crowded, but worth the wait. I had the carnitas super burrito dorado style. It was the best burrito I ever had. No rice no refried beans just real food. Delicious.

Culture is the word for this place. A Hispanic community coupled with murals, restaurants, shops, and a very nice visit. The food is a excellent and well worth the price.

Hands down the best burrito I've ever had. My wife had the carne asada tacos and loved them. Would highly recommend this place. We came for lunch and it was very crowded!

Authentic and delicious tacos at this simple restaurant. Inexpensive but well worth tracking down. Shared tables and simple ambiance.

This hole in the wall has possibly the most amazing taco that you can put into your mouth. I'm talking about some kind of amazing Mexican cheese that is sandwiched between two wonderful corn tortillas that is then fried (think mini quesadilla) then smothered with avocado, salsa or pico and other goodness. I'm not a vegetarian and I couldn't get... More

The place was packed on a Sunday afternoon. We figured that with such a long waiting line, the food would be great. And we were right. We ordered tacos and chips and shared a table with friendly clients and left quickly after our meal. Food was really good, worth waiting in line.

I am not a big fan of the US standard version of Mexican food, but La Tacqueria is something different. This is far more innovative and authentic Mexican food. The tacos that we had were simply delicious. Pretty pricey. Quite crowded during lunch hours. Fast and good service.

I don't know if I built it up too much in my mind but I was a little disappointed. I got the super carne Asada burrito that they are famous for. The meat and flavor was wonderful. Beans and all the extras were just ok. They don't have rice which was fine by me. My son had the carne Asada... More

Billed as "the best tacos in the world", I had high expectations. They were good (I had the sausage) -- very good, in fact. But I expected more, somehow. I'm sure they were very authentic, but I don't know anything about that. I didn't get the guacamole, sour cream, cheese that comes with the "super taco". My taco was under... 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.
