For a taqueria to survive the competition in the City's Mission District, it has to be more than just good - it has to be great. La Taqueria, an unpretentious place with an appropriately mission-inspired decor, is just that. The tacos and burritos come with a variety of flavorful meat and vegetarian fillings, and prices that'll tempt you to order more than one. Regulars swear by the Carnitas , made from slow-cooked pork and seasoned to perfection. It is a casual, friendly place that has been feeding the locals for over 25 years.
As a San Francisco native, I thought I'd be hard-pressed to find a terrible Taquera joint. Well, I look no further. This place is ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. From the moment I ordered (the lady behind the counter made a rude comment about me to another worker, she didnt know i spoke spanish) I was confused to see set prices for burritos but upon ordering, my sub-total was no where near the listed price. $ 1.20 for advocadoes?! $ .50 for cheese?! Last time I checked, cheese was a main ingredient in a burrito. Anyway, the damage was $18 bucks for a two burritos (in the Mission?!) I asked for chips and they said it was extra. For 18 bucks, I think chips should be complimentary. Whats worse is, when we opend up the foil, the whole thing just fell apart and it was gone in 5 bites. Absolutely THE WORSE TAQUERIA IN SF. My advice, go to La Corneta right down the block. They are more friendly, the portions are satisfying, and they dont charge you 9 bucks for crappy burrito. Not to mention I have never been insulted by any of their staff members.
The best burrito in the bay area. The food is fresh, tasty, and the variety is kept to a few very good choices of meat or vegetarian.. The service is fast and efficient. The only place I know and go to where the food is always very good. The price is right for quality ingredients. I also like the ambiance...friendly, fun place to eat.
I ilke this place because it is closer to SoCal Mex which is by far better and cheaper. The good thing is unlike most Mission/SF mexican food places they use real chips not smart and final bag o chips. And they let you have all the salsa and radishes you want. The beer prices are resonable. Good for Breakfast/Lunch. If you go there remember to bring your on rest room as they are filthy!
My parents lived in S.F. in the 70's and upon returning after a nearly 30 year hiatus, the first thing they did was take my sister and I to La Taqueria. To say the least, I've been back a few times since.
