We stumbled upon this place while we were looking for something to eat, and got seated at the bar straight away (there was a waiting list for a table) and immediately noticed that the menu was on the pricey side. The food was good and the Vibes were awesome but there were a few glitches - we asked for no... More

The only taco that was worth getting was the brisket, everything else was dry and just OK. Our server was kind of rude when she came up... After 10 minutes of us sitting there without even being greeted (it was busy, but the place is small) and the one bathroom they had wasn't well kept. Has great reviews from others... More

We had a great meal at Tacolicious. We tried many different tacos, and was defenitely one of the best meals we had in California. The margarita cocktail is also very nice.

Great food and fantastic margarita options. We had chicken, carnitas and beef tacos with cilantro, pineapple and onions. They were super yummy. Very gluten free friendly with lots of options! Passion margarita was absolutely delicious and had a hint of spaciness. Highly recommended.

We knew going in this place basically only sold tacos as their entrees. They had good apps also. Chips are authentic and sauces as well. Had the 10 tacos and some taquitos. At first I didn't think the 4 of us could eat it all but the flavor was so great we had no trouble finishing it off. Would like... More

Though a lot of people love this place, it wasn't great for us. I enjoyed the cod taco, but the braised chicken, brisket, and carnival were okay at best. I felt there could have been a lot more flavor to the food.

We ordered chips and guacamole, the shrimp and lime tacos, the carnitas tacos and the beef brisket tacos. My friend's favorite were the shrimp tacos (I don't really like small shrimps...I prefer prawns) and my favorite were the carnitas. The guacamole was very simple...no added tomatoes as filler. Everything was really good. I would go back for sure.

Food was amazing. We ordered the 10 tacos for $39.95. The tacos can mix and match. They are double wrapped in a soft shell. They also offer a fun prix fix of 1 shot, 1 beer, and 1 taco for $10. Best item was the chili con queso dip. Order 2. Clean bathrooms.

We had tacos and salad with fresh seafood and it was delicious. The service was quick. We also received complimentary chip and salsa, and sauces to go with the tacos. Quick and yummy lunch. Would go again.

Delicious tacos, especially the brisket! I would recommend ordering a bunch (it's less expensive that way) and sharing them. Also the yellowish sauce they give you for the tacos is amazing!

Description
Tacolicious is by no means a traditional taqueria-you won't find burritos here. What started out in the summer of 2009 as a little taco stand at the Thursday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market with a fittingly frivolous name, has become a sit-down, cocktail-driven restaurant, 120 tequilas strong. Tacos anchor a menu that extends to dishes such as beet salad with grapefruit and pumpkin seeds, tuna tostadas, grilled squid served Veracruz-style, albondigas, shrimp a la diabla, and toasted coconut flan.

Like many native Californians, Mexican food is in us. Though we grew up traveling to Mexico regularly (and still do), it took a trip to Mexico City-where the food is served in settings as sophisticated and urban as you'll find anywhere in the world-for us to realize that tacos don't have to be relegated to street food or a corner mom-'n'-pop.

We're proud to be based in San Francisco, a town where the words local, sustainable and organic have become so redundant that they make you want to yawn. But just in case you were wondering about our menu: The answer is almost always, "Yes, yes and yes."

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
