Little pinche tacos - must try the chicken mole ones. So good! Be aware of the lunch rush. You get 4 tacos for $9.50, and since they are so delicious, the line goes out the door.

Everything from the service, to the prices, to the quality of the food, the food served here is worth the wait that you'll most likely encounter when stopping for a bite to eat at La Taqueria! Don't get scared away from the line ups out the door!

We really loved this little find. The beer on tap was cold and delicious. The tortillas tasted homemade and the toppings were amazing. They have 4 tacos for 9.50$ (2 meat and 2 veggies) and we were more than satisfied with our meal. And Anything with their queso Fresco is worth a try. The quesodias were to die for.

Took a sortiment of 5 different tacos as well as the beans and milk with cinemon. All tastes were very fresh, spiced with balance and served rapidly. The locations is nice and clean. They are actively asking for feedback and "thrive to make their guests feel happy, loved and at home" Am looking forward to next time.

Went for lunch at La Taqueria with a group of colleagues. I had promised them a good meal and they were thrilled with the experience - the food and the place. The restaurant is really small - a counter where you order - and then a dozen or so tables for quick eating. The menu is simple - tacos and... More

Went yesterday for my usual 6 tacos promo and the tortillas were cold, meat was chunky and the pastor was also cold. Waiting line was longer than before so something was happening at the back I guess. No onion neither carrots with jalapenos by the salsa at least the 20 min I ate, staff was extremely busy so I did... More

6 PM on a Wednesday. The place is backed. I ordered 4 tacos - two meat (actually 1 fish, 1 pork) and two veg. $9.50. This is a top cheap eat in the area. You order at the bar and they bring the order to you. Approximately 5 minutes later they arrived to my seat. The fillings were really good... More

The line up reached outside the door when I visited for a weekday lunch, but worth the wait and the line moved quickly. Menu ranges from very traditional to west-coast influenced ( tuna with wasabi mayo, kale and mushroom) Tacos are prepared on nice little corn tortillas. I had 2 meat/2 veg for 9.50, which seemed like good value. Enjoyed... More

I met my daughter for a quick bite - I have never had taco's before - it was awesome. There were so many choices so I ordered 5 different ones - all were great all unique flavors - exactly how they were described. The front counter guy was helpful and super friendly. We ordered the unique beverages - beer and... More

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 Shaughnessy

Neighborhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
