Nick's crispy taco is a must stop place each time I'm here for a visit. The place is clean, fast, friendly, cash only. My new obsession is the carne asada supreme burrito!!

Friendly service, loved the vibe and the decor of the place. Food is not the best mexican food but it is good and cheap. Keep in mind that this is a cash only place! Had a great time with my friends and will be back!

Nick's was mentioned to us in passing by the guide on our walking tour who claimed they were the best tacos in SF, so we decided to hunt it out in the evening and we weren't disappointed! I had the crispy chicken (Nick's way, of...More
