This is a very busy place, but worth the wait. The tacos, burritos and quesadillas are to die for! Wonderful refried beans and chips & salsa. I will dream about this food !

Very easy, simple menu of well cooked Latino menu items. The chicken burrito was excellent. Very busy so must be good value. Enjoyed the experience.

We spent the day sightseeing all over San Fran. But my trip was not complete until I had Mexican from the Mission District. This was top rated on TA so we checked it out. Delicious. Super busy on a Sunday evening but speedy service. Delicious food! Hubs and I got carne asada burritos. Cheap. Fast. Delicious.

My daughter loves Mexican food so when we went to San Francisco we had to make a trip to La Taqueria. It is a small place with limited seating but it had fantastic food. If it is your first time ordering may be a bit confusing because it is very busy and people are just milling around waiting on their... More

The best burritos and tacos around. Be prepared to wait in line if you attempt to come at peak times,1130am-1pm, 430-6pm(later on weekends), as line frequently goes out the door. Good food, cold beer while you wait for food. Nice Italian bakery(Dianda's)next door for coffee/dessert after dinner./(see that review for further)

Though it's off the tourist path, this place is a must-visit. Chaotic, fast and cheap, the burritos are amazing and not to be missed!

I've walked to this place from Union Square so it was quite a trip (3 miles) but I had to after reading they have one of the best burrito's in San Francisco. I had the carne asada and was doubting to get a taco but I just sticked to the burrito and a beer. And WOW, that is one great... More

If I could take this restaurant home I would. The food is mouth watering. Standard range of Mexican beers. A busy bustling environment. Grab a table where you can then you order at the counter and listen out for your number. Locals love this place.

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.
