A favorite of both the kids and adults. When I lived in SF I would go almost weekly with my three kids. . Now I go whenever I am in the city. Love the mango agua fresca and the carne asada taco with avocado or thr burrito. Service is always quick--even when there's a line. Worth the wait. (Love the... More

The BEST in the west. We go every few weeks when we can't stand it anymore and need our fix. Carnitas anything is also the bomb. Sorry no pictures because we eat it so quick.

If you're in San Fran don't miss out on La Taqueria. I went with some buddies and we did our research beforehand on the best thing to get, which we confirmed with our own trip there: a carne asada super burrito dorado style (meaning they grill the burrito and get the outside a bit crunchy). Definitely the right thing to... More

Good experience, crowd was big but the line moved quickly. Food was delicious and fresh. Nothing fancy, just decent Mexican food from a local institution.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The food was delicious ! It's cash only and there tends to be a line but it goes by quickly and it is totally worth it. I had their burrito and couldn't get enough. The portions are huge so be warned. A can't miss!!

This noon was well-spent. We were second in line as La Taqueria opened at 11:00. The ordering system is tried and true, and we had our lengua (tongue) super burrito ($10.90) in six minutes. One super can feed two, knowing that our dessert is just a minute away at Mission Pie. The burrito was just as delicious as I remembered.... More

Read all the reviews you want to find the best burrito in SF. Nearly all will list La Taqueria in the list. Droning on about the others may give bloggers and reviewers something to do and sell, but I can save you some time and trouble--this is the real deal. The accumulated wisdom here is spot on; a must-have is... More

I went to La Taqueria on Cinco De Mayo right before closing and only had to wait maybe 15-20 minutes before ordering and getting a table - got the carnitas and chicken tacos. It was absolutely amazing. Worth the wait. Best tacos I've had in a very long time, if not ever!!!

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
