We liked it so much we came back twice over a 6 day visit! The hit was the flour quesadilla with beef head. We had 3 of those between the 4 of us. We had it as 'regular' (just meat and cheese) and as 'super' with guacamole, sour cream and other things. We actualy preferred it as regular. Prices are... More

Had a beef burrito, regular. It was delicious. I saw a couple of reviews saying there was no seasoning or flavor, not sure if they went to the same place as us, mine was incredible. It was crowded. Cash only. Community tables mostly but had great conversation with a few locals.

I'm more of an El Toro guy myself, as it is 2 blocks from my house and has better salsa options. Super Burrito Dorado style with both carnitas and carne asada was good, but if El Toro did Dorado style, I'd never come here

One of the best taquerias in the city. A bit different than most places, no rice, no grilled chicken and only whole pinto beans. But you can't beat a super carne asada burrito or taco from here.

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)

Thank John C

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.
