“Delicious & cheap!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

What an amazing little joint in Mission, San Francisco. There are a number of taquerias in the Mission - but from my research/recommendations - La Taqueria was the place to go. We went for an early lunch to avoid the crowds which I had read abt- which clearly worked because there was no queue when we went there abt 11.30 on a weekday. The food is fantastic - tacos, quesadillas -the meat was sooo tasty! Not only that - it was so cheap too. I was only disappointed with the fact that we went there only on our last day in San Francisco- if we had gone at the start of our trip - no doubt we would have gone back there again!

“Tasty tacos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

We came here for an early dinner, since we had found the place in our Lonely Planet guidebook. There was a line when we arrived, but it moved forward pretty quickly and we soon were able to order. Upon paying you receive a slip if paper with the number of your order on it - once it gets called out, your food is ready at the counter.

We chose tacos as well as a burrito and both was really good.

The location has long communal tables where you can share a conversation with your neighbor or just gobble down your tasty bounty.

Several beers as well as soft drinks were available.

The neighborhood is a bit sketchy, but don't let that hinder you from trying the food. It is really good.

“Our go-to Tacqueria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

We've been living in the Mission for almost two years, and La Taqueria is where we take out of town guests for tacos. This place has been around forever, and draws a mix of Mission Hipsters, out of towners, and Hispanic families. Everyone is treated well here--service is fast--and the food is always good. You can get good tacos and burritos at a ton of places in the Mission, but this place is always a good choice.

“Indeed, Best Burritos in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

They live up to that slogan. At first I wondered why rice wasn't part of the burrito, now I know. It's not necessary. I got my steak burrito with cheese, guac, sour cream and you can bet it's a party in your mouth! The steak was not tough at all, and the flavors were just superb - definitely the best burritos I've ever had!
