We visited this place based on feedback from TripAdvisor and local info. It did not disappoint. However, it is very well known for having the best food so be prepared for a crowd!
The line moves quickly and the food is cooked to order and comes out pretty quickly. We had a chicken burrito and a beef burrito and added chips with salsa and guac. Upon recommendation from a local, I tried an aguafresca in mango and it was so delicious.
Be prepared...this place is packed and you will probably share a table with folks and make new friends! If possible, get someone in your party to find a table while someone else waits in line. The menu is limited to burrito, taco, quesadilla and then you pick your meat and any extra fillings. The regular size is plenty big to fill you up!

Really good carne asada burrito - as others mention get it grilled. Had a great green sauce on the table as well, but m'lady bemoaned the lack of a salsa bar. Quality of meat exceeded some other places I've been, but I'm going to be honest (based on very extensive burrito experience) - there's lots of places slanging nearly identical product. There was a line before they opened and the whole time we were there which made it very claustrophobic and not very enjoyable to eat inside - I'd take it to go if I wine back. Strawberry and watermelon aguas frescas were superb!

Having never been to San Francisco, a stop at a Mexican restaurant was a must on a recent trip. La Taqueria was mentioned a number of times by various websites and reviewers for having the best burritos in the area so a stop here seemed to be the right choice. I visited for lunch and the place was pretty crowed but not unbearable. The line to order wrapped around the entire interior of the restaurant and those who had already ordered stood around awkwardly between the tables waiting for a seat to open. It took about 10 to 15 minutes to place my order and about another 5 minutes to get the food. I ordered the Chips & Salsa and a Burrito with Carne Asada. The Chips & Salsa was a little disappointing. The Salsa was a little soggy like it had been sitting around for a bit but still had a decent flavor. The burrito was enjoyable and filled with freshly grilled chunks of Carne Asada, tender pinto beans, crisp lettuce, creamy avocado, and sour cream.

We came a Thursday around 19.30 which isn't the best idea if you want to make sure you get a table. It is a very busy place! We came back half an hour later and were lucky. The burritos were very good!

Our first time there, didn't know what to get or how to order. The cashier was very impatient and rude. The Carne Asada burrito was good.
