This is as good as it gets for "fast" food. There are a couple of "buts". There is little to no parking. There can be long lines. This is not fine dining. If you can live with that, fresh food at great prices. There are no better tacos anywhere.

Tourists from FL: We stopped here on our walk to Gastown, and at first were put off by its small facade and that it's on a street in Gastown away from most tourist spots. We were so glad we took a chance! What a gem. Small, fresh and inexpensive tacos, with many toppings, made to order. You can eat 3... More

I happened to come across this place after a lovely trip to Canadian Tire, and it was an excellent surprise! The food is so good, and the staff is incredibly friendly! Only regret is that I didn't order more foods

The Tinga de Pollo with chorizo and chipotle sauce was tasty too. On the veggie side, the Frijoles Charros con Queso taco with... More

go here. just do it, and you will not regret it. we waited in line for maybe 20-25 min, but it was worth it. the place is tiny, and you definitely get up close and personal w/ your neighbors; love the DIY condiment bar!

I am addicted to these, the carnitas one is super tasty, but my favorite one is the picadillo, even though I am not a vegetarian it is just delicious! Taco Wednesday is a great deal! you get 6 tacos instead of 4! I am mexican and I can say these are the closest to authentic mexican food you will get.

Offering authentic Mexican tacos in the heart of Downtown Vancouver.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) or as a Quesadilla.La Taqueria is born in 2009, through the idea of creating a pinche taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. These tacos are usually the best and are often referred to as pinche tacos.Both locations are open 11am to 8:30pm Monday to Saturday. Closed Sunday.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
