For a family of 3 it cost us $50 to eat lunch here. We each got 2 tacos and a bottle of water. Additionally we had 1 horchata and 1 coke. A bit pricey, granted we are in San Francisco. The tacos were delicious. The crispy tacos were the way to go. They are double shelled with a soft taco... More

I really enjoyed this place the beef and pork tacos were outstanding. Lunch time is busy and hard to get a seat but definitely worth it. It was nice to get away from the tourist frenzied areas. I would definitely recommend LaTaqueria for a quick taco or burrito experience but do not expect fancy. This is down to earth!

I felt like I was in the Seinfeld Soup Natzi episode. The place was packed. All tables were occupied, and there were even more people standing in line or off to the side waiting for there food. I was a bit intimidated. Despite the long line, it went surprisingly fast, so I felt pressured to make a quick decision. Everything... More

I had a pork burrito with extra avocado. What I tasted was salty meat (yes just tasted salty, no other flavour), wrapped in a rubbery tortilla. There was no wow effect. There was disappointment.

To be honest, this was a little disappointing. I expected the best burrito in the universe and it was just okay. We live near San Diego so we eat a lot of Mexican food- maybe that's the problem. Just not a lot of wow factor or flavor. Bummer.

These are the BEST tacos, get them with the sour cream, I think they are termed "Special" We got carne asada but you have other protein choices. Lines are long, for good reason, but it moves faster than you think! Table seating for 8 a bit tricky but we got one.

We ate burritos (Super Version) and drank beer on a Friday night. It's not easy to get a table and there is a long line waiting. But it moves fast and it's absolutely worth it! We will be back!!! Muchas gracias :)

Visiting this place was a cool experience. It was very crowded and no chance of getting a seat, and the wait was about 5 minutes to order and then 10-15 for my burrito to be ready. I had a carne asada burrito. It was alright but I honestly think I enjoy burritos from a few other places better. I also... More

My family came here on a Tuesday night and still had to wait about 15 minutes or so just to order and another 15 minutes for our food. They are churning out massive amounts of food quick. Your only options are tacos, burritos, and quesadillas. The meat they use is not the best quality. Mine had fat and other pieces... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
