Their burritos are great. All the meats here are fresh. They get their chips from El Tapatio (on Grand).

I consider myself a connoisseur for quality Mexican Cusine. When I read the ratings I knew I had to visit this restaurant. To my disappointment it wasn't as unique as described. It's just like every other Mexican restaurant I've been to. When you arrive your not sure how to order your food , to sit or order at register. The... More

We were a little confused with the names - the place is now called El Mezcal, under new management? The prices are reasonable in proportion with the portions served. We ordered Chicken fajita which came with rice and beans. Too much even for one! We also ordered chicken soup and it tasted of home made ones from home! There are... More

We were at the Comfort Inn and came over for lunch. Great Flavors and definitely not the commercial TexMex that I really can't stand. It's in a quiet neighborhood and the staff was really helpful and friendly as we made our lunch selections. There is seating upstairs and a few tables downstairs near the main entrance. Our selections ranged from... More

My favorite place to eat carne asada enchiladas with chile verde! Love to eat their specials, their meat platters, and carnitas. Large quantity, value, and great taste. Good choice of whole pintos, black, or refried beans. Burritos are excellent too. Good for foodies and great for your budget especially for families!

I was in South San Fran for a business trip and needed a quick bite to eat and found this location. The food was very tasty and I got a lot for my money. The staff was great too. Next time I visit the area, I will definitely be back.

When you walk in this modest restaurant, you'll notice the awards for "Most Authentic Mexican Cuisine"....and those aren't a joke. The food is authentically prepared, no pretentiousness, no muss, no fuss. Just simple food prepared simply, and the result is simply delicious. Be warned - the portions are quite generous. I way over-ordered, and the food was so good I... More

From the outside it is small and unassuming. Inside you order before you find a table. The kitchen appears cramped and the overhead menu sign shabby. But the food was hot, plentiful and delcious. Large portions made from fresh ingredients and friendly staff makes this place a gem. And the "mild" red sauce is truly mild.

I've been going to La Morena Taqueria for years. The food is always fresh and delicious. The Owner takes pride in the food he serves, and I'm happy to bring friends and work associates here for lunch, or pick up food for dinner on the way home. My favorite is the Quesadilla Zuisa!!! Would definitely recommend La Morena Taqueria for... More
