Mission Taco is a great place to get a unique spin on street style tacos. You usually have to wait a while, so I recommend using the Yelp app to get in line before you get here. The queso is divine, and the BBQ Duck,...More

Amazing! The Mexican street corn fritters...unbelievable! There were nine of us, including 5 kids 4-12 (spring breakers). We did a "call ahead" since they don't take reservations and they got us in about 30 minutes later and were very accommodating. All tacos we got were...More

Have to come back to this place when I visit St. Louis. The CWE location is easy to get to, though you do deal with CWE parking. I love their street corn and duck tacos. The South Beach burrito is also delicious and huge!

My wife and I were in STL for my birthday and went here for lunch. The food was great and the servers were super attentive. The chips and both types of salsa were great. The jam band tacos I had were awesome.

Dropped our kiddo off at soccer camp and decided to find a restaurant close to the college campus. Drove down Euclid and decided Mission Taco sounded the best. Ate at the bar. Food was good but not great. I have eaten at their Soulard location...More
