This is one of the many examples of a place that achieved notoriety some years ago and has let it go to their heads. Watch out for extra charges ($2 for avocado on the burrito). Ended up at $10 per burrito ! The burritos are narrow

La Taqueria is a classic mission restaurant that is authentically delicious. The food is consistently great even though the place is prone to overcrowding. The staff is used to working well when their is a crowd so if there is a line do not let is scare you away. They will get you in and out fast with great food.

I love their burritos. I always get the carne asada with the green sauce, it is the best. The prices are great, they make your food really fast and it tastes amazing. I definitely recommend you eat here!

La Taqueria has the best tacos in the city, specially with their green salsa!!!! The price is a little steep but that won't matter after you take your first bite. Their Carne Azada is the best.

What can I say, if money's no object, then this spot is worth it. I make it a point to eat at taqueria's in our fair city, and when compared to others, La Taqueria has the best flavors. The quality of beef is the highest I've had in any

I don't think it's right to charge six bucks for a tortilla, meat, and three beans. I?m not stupid. This place charges extra for cheese, sour cream, guacamole, etc. You name it- they'll ding you for it. I got the "basic floor model"

Hands down, the best taco joint in town. No frills. I don't understand why they don't have a staple like rice, but then again, the main attraction at this place are the tacos and burritos. Everything is delicious. It's hard getting a table

Great late night, leftover cash eat. If your hungry and you've spent most of your last $20 at the bar, this place offers well priced and great tasting food. It is a mission must!

I lived the first 20 years of my life in San Francisco, and sampled all the taquerias and Mexican restaurants the city has to offer. But this restaurant, by far, is and will always be the best for Mexican. You must go!

this is actually my second favorite Mission taqueria, but I still come here often to switch things up a bit. I really like how they have a nice, clean area with good indoor and outdoor seating, unlike a lot of other places where you're forced to get your food to go. They also have really nice, juicy rice-less burritos. My favorite is the chicken, with extra avocado. they have good carne asada as well. be warned that the price is also higher than other places and burritos seem smaller.

I was intriqued by this "burrito sans beans," so I headed down one day for a late lunch. The menu is quite limited compared to other places, and they do not give you many choices as to what goes in the burrito. I filled mine with chicken

With its distinctive whitewashed facade, street-side seating and gleaming tiles, La Taqueria is perhaps the most visually appealing bargain in the Mission. Yet no one comes for the decor; they line up for the burritos, quesadillas, tacos…
