Description: We make our tacos from traditional recipes with local, organic and sustainable products, when possible. Our menu offers different types of fillings which can be served as a Taco (soft tortilla, made locally & homemade style) or as a Quesadilla. La Taqueria was born in 2009, through the idea of creating a taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. These tacos are usually the best, a real Mexican tradition.

“One of our family's favorite places!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We will drive across Vancouver in rush hour traffic to eat these tacos. These are the most authentic tacos we have found in the greater Vancouver area. Our favorites are the carne asada, corn con crema, and frijoles. My husband often tries the taco of the day special and hasn't been disappointed! Don't forget to add the salsas and the pickled carrots and jalapeno. This is a small place, but very clean. Expect long lines at lunch and plan ahead by coming early or later. Cerveza is now available too. We love this place, just need to convince them to make breakfast tacos too!

“Taco heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Friendly service, delicious food, varied menu and affordable dishes. I loved it 9.50$ for 4 tacos. I love their mole verde and pescado tacos the best.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We had driven by many times and decided we needed to stop. Tuesday late lunch and the order counter was lined out the door for the whole time we were there, many for take out orders. Needless to say the small eating area was packed but we shared a table with "regulars" who quickly shared their knowledge of the menu. Great friendly staff, fresh food and delicious! We shared 8 different tacos, all very good. Hint, if you visit on a Tuesday and order 4 tacos get a free rice water, but you have to ask!

“Good, not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The tacos were inventive and sounded promising. it was good, just not great... I was expecting more considering the hype this place got... The taco shells were a little overpowering for the filling, not sure why each taco got 2 shells which didn't help the situation. It was lacking "oomph" for us... The décor, ambiance and service was great though - no complaints there...

“Fast and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

With a simple menu of tacos, this place doesn't seem to have a lot to offer on first glance. But the choices are well developed and work well on the taste buds. For under $10 this fast food beets much of the higher end competition in this town.
