I really wanted to like the tacos here and to be honest the fish tacos were not bad but they were not great either. Considering that we researched and read reviews on Nick's tacos I really left feeling underwhelmed. The lady at the register was...More

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

Popped into this place after the Mexican we searched for in San Francisco closed. Walked in and were seated right away. Place was very busy as they have specials on Tuesday nights. Ordered right away and the carne asada tacos "nicks way" were phenomenal. Cheese...More

We ate a late, second dinner at Nick's Crispy Taco's on a Sunday evening in mid February. It was a nice walk from our Air BnB, located on an interesting street away from the tourist traps of the waterfront. We placed our order at the...More

Came here with a friend (local). What a great place. Another great, authentic bar with great food. Order the delicious tacos at the counter, find a table, enjoy some drinks, good music and amazing food. Well worth a visit for a unique non-touristy experience.

Can't believe I've never had a crispy taco before! Delicious soft tacos made even better by lightly deep frying the corn tortilla. A must try!!

Had another light lunch today. Ordered vegetariano taco, although it was all veggies it was flavorful, big serving and satisfied my hunger.

Returned for a second visit here, enjoyed every bite of it!! We got the nachos to start....positively huge!! They screwed up because the guy taking the orders wasn't really paying attention....so instead of the carne asada burrito I got the chicken burrito....which was honestly doable....More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
