    Probably the best Mexican I ever had. Local crowd and simple food. I'll recommend this place any time.

    Supposedly the best burritos around. My chicken burrito was great! And they don't put rice in their burritos which was different but still yummy. It gets pretty crowded so make sure to miss the lunch rush

    “The best tacos and burritos in the whole world,” declares the neon sign outside the white Mission-style arches. Bold words? As the expression goes, It ain’t braggin’ if it’s true. La Taqueria has won more than its fair share of converts with its chorizo, lengua, and carnitas tacos as well as rice-free burritos. Come to the Mission District on an empty stomach, and after eating here, you can size up the competition at El Farolito and Taqueria Los Coyotes, popular for its micheladas.

    $6 dollars for a taco!!? are you freakin out of your mind!!

    Well i must be, because it was worth it! Also there was no way I wasn't going to try it since it's on the 7x7!! However, the 7x7 tells you to get the carnitas taco, but thankfully my friend also recommended the carne asada one. I definitely think the carne asada one tastes much better since the meat is more seasoned and flavorful, but do whatcha gotta do!

    TIP: DONT FORGET TO USE THEIR GREEN SAUCE! IT'S A MUST!!!

    I love this place. Locoted in the heart of San Francisco's Latin Quarter, the Mission District. Simply the best chicken burrito in the city. Very simple like in Mexico. There should not be lettuce or rice in a burrito or taco. Expect long lines but they go fast. The salsa verde is pure perfection and they add avocado for an authenic flavor. Something about the tortillas. The meats are grilled to perfection. Best Mexican fast meal deal. Note, it's cash only.

    Definitely one of the best taco/burrito joint I have been to. La Taqueria is the go-to stop in the Mission district for great, authentic Mexican food.

    I ordered a lengua (beef tongue) burrito here because I was feeling adventurous and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked and all the ingredients together made an excellent burrito. Just writing about it now is making my mouth water. I am a bigger guy though so I thought it wasn't really enough food for me.

    Although it seems cheap...the base line price is $6.50, when you start putting in more stuff into your burrito, the price really starts getting jacked up. Of course I wanted all the add-ons, which included sour cream, guacamole, cheese, and no beans. (For some reason "no beans" was considered an add-on of $1.20! I suppose they put more meat in or something). The price of my burrito jumped up to $11 in the end.

    The people working here are hilarious. The old guy working the cash register was really laid back and talked to everyone like he's known them forever. He was not afraid to crack jokes and jokingly insult the customers, just as old friends chide each other.

    Cash only!

    La Taqueria serves the best tacos in San Francisco. Going on their twenty-fifth year, they are always packed with locals and tourists alike. The owner is often smiling behind the register ready to answer questions, and give samples of their delectable meats, and sweet home-made agua frescas. The carnitas taco with cheese, guacamole, and pico de gallo is my favorite ;)

    I came to San Francisco hoping to have a taste of some great Mexican food. This place gave me quite the meal.

    Not only is the food great, the atmosphere was a blend of tourists (Yelp maybe?) and locals looking for their taco / burrito fix!

    When we arrived just after 7pm on a Friday nite the tables were packed an the place was busy. BUT... fear not, the tables turn over quite quickly and we were able to grab a seat no problem.

    As a burrito fan, I could've easily eaten two as they were a bit smaller than the monster burritos we have in Toronto.

    Good food all around, if you're in the area and hungry for a good meal. This place is top notch.

    This is a well-known taqueria in the Mission. The tacos are expensive here, maybe twice as much as you pay elsewhere, but if you get them loaded with guacamole and crema they are almost the size of a mini burrito. I only get one. Two is too much!

    We don't all love the rice, but a Mission style burrito is a must to familiarize yourself with the Mexican food landscape in SF. Try La Taqueria in the Mission or Gordo in the Sunset.
