La Taqueria has incredible authentic Mexican food. It has quick service and friendly servers. The owner came around and greeted patrons and told stories about the sauces, restaurant, and food. This is a must do for people who enjoy delicious authentic tacos, burritos, and guacamole.

Stopped in for lunch after reading so many great reviews of this place. Yes, the burrito was good, but not great or sand out at all. For the area, it all seemed to be average. All the menu items are around the same price as every other shop in the mission. Types of burritos were almost identical. Size was around... More

Clearly worth queueing for. Service is very quick. Taste is amazing; no rice filler in Burritos makes them wonderful. Excellent.

Well, it's on everyone's top ten for best Mexican food...... Would i put it on my list? NO!!! Actually their burritos have one of the best taste around town, but they come out very wet, and they are kind of small for what comes out to be almost a 10dlls burrito. Im from Southern Cal and a burrito is never... More

I'm on vacation and I really love Mexican food, so I decided to give this place a try, it was busy but the line seemed to move pretty quickly. Sitting places are hard to find. But the food is really delicious here, have the best horchata as well. Would recommend to get the super tacos! Two is usually enough to... 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.
