Easily One of the Best Burritos in the World

Best Burrito around and easily one of the best in the country. Cash only, so be ready for that. The sign on the wall says Best Burritos and Tacos in the World and they back it up every day. No rice filler in the burritos and the beef, pork, and chicken is melt in your mouth tender. I don't... read more

Food was great and relatively cheap! The place was packed! Line was pretty long but they did a good job at making it move quickly.

We went yesterday after having heard of the place in a podcast. There was quite a queue so it took us about 15-20min to order. But boy, was that worth it! We shared a quesedilla of beef tongue (amazingly good!) and each had a burrito, one with pork and one with chicken (both very delicious). A soda and beer added,... More

This was my second trip and the line was just as long a year later after they were proclaimed the best burrito in the nation! They don't use rice as a filler, but if you aren't a big eater two people can probably share! We split a burrito and two tacos. Beef burrito and chicken tacos. Yes the line is... More

I heard many great thing about La Taqueria from both locals and Trip Advisor postings. I LOVE Mexican food more than anything else and this food was delicious. However, when we went it was extremely busy and the line wrapped through the restaurant and out the entrance. As a result seating was hard to find (inside and out) but this... More

It's exciting to know you're at a tasty enough place that there is a line out the door to eat. Patience to wait on a table and snake through the line is a must. The tacos are loaded with meat so even though they look small they are filling. The guacamole is as fresh as it gets. Glad they use... More

This place is no frills and serves up great food. Be aware there is no rice here, and isn't an option. The carnitas is fantastic and goes well on either a burrito or tacos. This place has a long line around lunch and dinner.

It was pretty average and it was hard to get to. Walked through several areas of dodgy San Fran, which was not worth it at all. Busy and food was average at best

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.
