Staying at the Delta on West Hastings and driving to Port Moody, I have driven past this place many times. It wasn't until having a desire for Mexican food that the concierge suggested that I walk a few blocks to this interesting storefront that I had passed so many times. The Asada and Carnita were some of the best I've... More

With a great assortment if tacos with many chooses, this restaurant fits the mark for tacos away from my home in Southern California where good Mexican food is everywhere. Don't forget to try a variety of tacos. They have meat, veggie, and Gish options.

Loud and small, a little piece of heaven. It felt like being in a real taqueria down south except for the fact it was ridiculously clean! Service was awesome and friendly, walked me through the menu patiently, prices good And the food! So good. Amazing!. Big flavours, good portions!, getting hungry just thinking about it! Can't wait to go back.

I visited La Taqueria for lunch and immensely enjoyed the vibrant interior and the superb food. The asada quesadilla was perfectly crispy and succulent, and the serving size was generous considering the cheap prices. The tuna tacos were also a hit, and our server was friendly and engaging. The restaurant is small but provides an intimate atmosphere, making La Taqueria... More

My wife and I were craving tacos during our visit to Vancouver and looked up "mexican restaurants." This place was rated high so we paid a visit. They did not disappoint.

What a nice little (and I do mean LITTLE) place! Funky, efficient, authentic, CHEAP, and the best little (and I do mean LITTLE) tacos I've had in years. There is a big selection; order at least two; four (for under $10) if you're hungry. This is great for sampling -- sort of like taco tapas! Did I mention CHEAP? Service... More

I love this place! This is the second time I've been there but every time I go to Vancouver I try and walk by to see if it's open. They service authentic Mexican tacos and they are absolutely delicious! Very reasonable prices, diverse choices for tacos, excellent & fast service. Not the most visually appealing place but seriously do not... More

This is as good as it gets for "fast" food. There are a couple of "buts". There is little to no parking. There can be long lines. This is not fine dining. If you can live with that, fresh food at great prices. There are no better tacos anywhere.

Offering authentic Mexican tacos in the heart of Downtown Vancouver.We make our tacos from traditional recipes with local, organic and sustainable products, when possible.Our menu offers different types of fillings which can be served as a Taco (soft tortilla, made locally) or as a Quesadilla.La Taqueria is born in 2009, through the idea of creating a pinche taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. These tacos are usually the best and are often referred to as pinche tacos.Both locations are open 11am to 8:30pm Monday to Saturday. Closed Sunday.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
