    Bring a friend and do a spiltty-split with a crispy burrito & some crispy tacos. MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR CRISPY! So good. ps. if you grab a seat outside near windows you can watch them cut up the pork!

    The restaurant's policy of using no rice in their burritos produces a streamlined, taste-concentrated slab... and that taste is good, good, good. Their carne asada super burrito is like a religion. Read more

    Fivethirtyeight burrito bracket put this #1, and they were right. The carnitas are good, but the carne asada is better. Crispy style is a must, though not on the menu.

    La Taq's has a world-beating carnitas burrito, served with the perfect liquidy ratio of beans and salsa (but no rice) in a warm tortilla. There's a reason this won America's Best Burrito. Read more

    Welcome to Mecca. Get the Super Burrito, your choice of meat (I recommend carne asada or carnitas), and get the burrito Dorado style — AKA thrown on the grill till the tortilla has a nice crisp to it)

    Amazing tacos! Definitely worth going for the super version with additional avocado, cheese, and sour cream. Take the pork (carnita) and you will not be disappointed! Cherry on top: cheap and fast!

    ABSURD lines, super crowded, but absolutely worth it. Getting a seat by the window to watch orders being made is a great way to pass the time.

    Get your burrito "El Dorado" and they'll fry it up on the griddle after it's rolled!

    Hands down one of my favorite taco places in the Mission District! Order the off menu Dorado taco with Carne Asada or they have the best Lengua tacos in the City. You can't go wrong eating here!

    La Taqueria's burritos are delicious, and my favorite protein is their chicken. It's so moist and fresh. You must get this burrito with their hot sauce. Read more

    Yes, believe the hype. This place is that good. Lines get long, but totally worth it. The tacos have huge portions - so order accordingly. Carne asada and beef tongue were so good!

    So good - have to get your burrito Dorado style. I like mine with half lengua for the extra richness. Get an agua Fresca too.

    It wouldn’t be San Francisco without The Mission’s squadron of gut-busting taquerias. This one continues to lead the pack with unwavering rave reviews for its sublime, spot-on Mexico staples. Read more

    Let's get one thing straight. This is not the best burrito in the country. Not even the best in SF. The filling is fairly bland, but that griddled tortilla is totally amazing.

    The line can go out the door, but moves quickly. Simply delicious! Be sure to get you burrito "Dorado" style, i.e. Grilled!

    The burrito is definitely better than anything you can get in NYC, but I still prefer mine with rice.

    Any burrito and taco is amazing here! The best texture, the best sauce. Order the pickled carrots and pepper with the meal, they're free. They also toast the wrapped burrito upon request

    Two cabeza tacos. Add cheese. Get them dorado (crispy). If the line is too long, walk to Taqueria Guadalajara and get the carnitas tacos.

    You want a super burrito and you want it "dorado style". They'll make your burrito, then put it back on the grill for the perfect tortilla.

    Strong carnitas supertacos (el dorado and regular). Loved the horchata! The super burrito is very good, but cannot beat the one from el farolito.
  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.
    Try the Tacos Dorados - These are the crispy style tacos. Soft on the outside, crispy on the inside and stuffed with tasty grilled fillings. How have I missed these all this time??

    Best Carne Asada taco in the city! Carne Asada is cut in long strips and has a nice charred flavor. Fillings are plentiful and pico de gallo topping is super fresh and delicious!

    La Taqueria is an amazing place for burritos deep into the SF mission district. The seating isn't too great but the food is amazing. My favorite Mexican takeout in San Francisco!

    Im the biggest lengua snob in the world. This place, has AMAZING lengua. Make sure you get the burrito because they will stack it to no end and fill your ass up good. Negro Modello for beer of choice.

    Hefty and delicious vegetarian tacos. There will most likely always be a line, even at 11:30am on a sunday. Cash only.

    Yes, that's correct, we're saying skip the burrito at La Taq and go for the tacos. We can't emphasize enough that you need the SUPER and DORADO style. Read more

    Solid, no-nonsense Mexican food. The burritos are good, but the tacos steal the show. Can't go wrong with the Carnitas crispy style taco.

    This is the only super burrito I’d pay $12 for, hands down. Get it dorado style like everyone else (and the hot sauce is a nice touch). What a game changer.

    Flour cheese quesadilla is out of this world. Traditional burrito without rice is packed full of tastiness. The Fresca and horchata are delicious too.

    It's cash-only, so be prepared. Also, the place gets packed around lunch, but it's a fast line. The trick is scoring seats. Just be nice to people and generally, someone will share tables.

    Worth the line up. Burritos are small so super size and order them crispy. Green sauce at the table is spicy! Drinks can be skipped - I've had a better horchata

    One of the few places I can find a vegetarian taco that doesn't leave me feeling like I'm lacking tasty. Also very good prices and short waits for food.

    The carne asada is amazing: big, gristle free chunks. No rice in the burritos or anywhere on the premises makes burrito a fairly juicy affair.
