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

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

Whether or not it really is the "best burrito in America" can be debated no end, but the fact remains that La Taqueria serves up delicious burritos (and tacos, quesadillas, aguas frescas, etc.) that are truly excellent, and certainly the best we've ever tasted. Just thinking about the food makes my mouth water! Their popularity and the quality of the... More

Having explored Mission San Francisco de Asis and taken a walk around some of the lovely independent shops in the Mission District (including the fun 826 Valencia Pirate Supply Store) we succumbed to the heat and hopped on a bus to La Taqueria for lunch. When we arrived there was a queue around the restaurant and out the front door... More

Two of arrived for lunch at 11am (opening time) on a Tuesday, since our Saturday, 1pm visit found the place overrun with customers waiting in line. Within 10 minutes (the staff had a bit of set up left to do), we were in and had orders placed: two carnitas burritos, a tongue taco, a Tecate, and water. A short time... More

La Taqueria is a Mission District landmark. It is known for it's amazing super burritos. The tacos are superb! They are actually THE BEST tacos I've had at any restaurant.

My girl friend wanted to try La Taqueria after she heard they had the best burrito. So off we headed to La Taqueria. We arrived at 10:45am on a Friday. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our burritos to go. Now living in California I have had lots of burritos. This was the best. I had the pork... More
