I've never been to Mexico but these tacos are awesome. I've tried almost all the meat ones but my outstanding favourites would be the pescado (only way I like eating cod), carnitas (pork confit) and the al pastor (topped with pineapple). They're 3 bite double...More

This experience was better than I anticipated. The menu was simple enough but with a good variety of interesting options. I had 4 different tacos which were delicious, ceviche which was good and a nice Mexican Pacifico lager to wash it down. Very tasty. The...More

Great food, good selection. Came with friends and lots of kids, staff were friendly and service prompt. Loved the fish tacos and the crispy chicken tacos. Wish we could have had a burrito sitting down, but they're only for takeaway.

Went for a quick bite before the comedy show at Yukyuk's. Both the beef lengua and carnitas were very good. Washed them down with a frozen mezcal margarita. Wished we had more time to enjoy a couple more. We will definitely be back!

The tacos are delicious, freshly made, and extremely affordable. I'm not from Canada so when I do get the chance to visit Vancouver, I always stop by to get a plate or two.

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.
