A local told us this was a must stop. We were not disappointed! Thr place was hopping with people on a Saturday night. Food was bomb digits delicious, got chips salsa and steak burrito. So good. Worth the trip off the tourist beaten path.

This review is written by a first time visitor. I have visited San Francisco dozens of times over the years and always wanted to go get a "classic" Mission Burrito. Finally we made it out there. Even on a midweek night the place was packed. Its small and packed with people. Some are sitting at tables, some standing at counters... More

Stopped in for lunch at this revered burrito (and taco) spot in the Mission. The burritos are top notch. We had a chicken and a carne asada. Both fresh and delicious (and the no rice is a great move)

We came only to the Mission to eat a buritto here. And it was worth it. You can choose your Kind of meat and ingredients, than you get a number for your order and wait for your Food. The burittos are made fresh. And what can I say: yummy, yummy, yummy..this is a perfect buritto for a couple of bucks.... More

I got a veggie burrito and veggie quesadilla. The burrito was really mediocre, and didn't even feel very fresh. The quesadilla was nice.

Had the chorizo and carnitas super tacos. Queues all the way to the street but quick service and good food. Bigger and more US-style tacos but all in all worth a visit

Wow, the quality at this place is amazing. The food is simple but the ingredients so fresh, it's almost that they went into their backyard garden and plucked out the veggies, etc. Great options for a vegetarian too.

A highlight of our trip! Full of locals and AMAZING burritos! Super busy and a great vibe. A bit out of the way but don't let that put you off!

La Taqueria has for many years been one of our top three places to eat along with House of Prime Rib and Gary Danko. But this time we went, we were just a bit disappointed. The prices keep going up, the portions keep getting smaller and the clientele is becoming more and more gentrified. Soon the only people speaking Spanish... More

This place is great! The food was on point, although the place was crowded (lunch time) the service was pretty quick. Best tacos I've had in a while. Definitely worth the ride from downtown SF.

Thank Michelle G

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.
