Food was good, we got take out as there was no place to sit. Everything is made fresh on the spot and you can actually watch them making your order.

This food was super! , very simple setting, no frills, but the very best, and very reasonable, esp for SF! Do not miss this place if you are in SF, it's worth the trip to get there.

Having read all the reviews we were expecting good things- and we were not disappointed at all. Ok the taxi ride takes you through some pretty interesting areas, but do not be put off! Very relaxed cafe style, long lines which is a good sign, cash only so the wait is not long. We got a table easily. We had... More

The burritos are awesome! Quesadillas are good. Fresh ingredients, great recipes - and the line moves OK. You can see why folks come here.

My girlfriend and I walked all the way to la taqueria from our hotel in union square - we were not disappointed in the slightest. The tacos I had were without doubt the best I'd ever eaten and I cannot fault la taqueria in the slightest. At the price point, this may be the best meal in San Francisco -... More

What shall I say. Go there, worth any mile. We had a Carne Asada and Pollo Burrito and both of them were just delicious. Even my girlfriend, who isn't too much into Mexican food was pleased.

When you walk in you only have to glance at the grills and see the mountain of steaks cooking to realise you are someplace special. No gimmicks, no tricks, no polish. Just genuinely good food, fresh ingredients and incredibly good Mexican food. You will have to wait, oh yes. But be patient. You will never have a burrito as good... More

Visited on an evening, it was busy but managed to get a table. Tacos are great, so is the horchata! Definitely give it a try if you're in the area and like your Mexican food!

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.
