Resting on laurels – 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 (small), quite juicy (runny). The green sauce is inedible unless you have a teflon tongue..and this they are liberal with. Cash only. With so many other taquerias in SF that aim to please, this one should be avoided until it gets some customer service.

Tacos Tacos Tacos – Get the tacos. Everything else is pretty good but the tacos are the best around. Order them 'crispy' and ask for cheese. Best tacos in all of SF.

BEST. MEXICAN. EVER – All I'm going to say is that if aliens landed, and abducted me, and they gave me a choice of any last requests, LA TAQUERIA is going to be my last meal on Earth!!!!!

Best flavors for worste price – 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 taqueria, the custom hot sauce is delicious, all of the ingredients are fresh, and the meat is cooked just right. I've also had veggie burrito's around the city, and this place tops it for me. The taco's are on my top 5 list in the city; cooked so the corn tortilla is a bit crunchy, packed full, and presented beautifully.

The big downside to this place is the price. Right now, it's almost 10 bucks for a meat burrito. The veggie burrito is a good price though. Also, there is no rice in their burrito's, and some people hate that. I've eaten at La Taqueria over 50 times in my life, and I've eaten at as many other taqueria's I could find. I have to say that I'm rarely disappointed by La Taqueria.

try somewhere else... – I have heard many people say this is one of the best taqueria's in the city. So after being unimpressed in the past i decided to give it another try not once but twice recently on the urging of some friends.well i must say not only is this place overpriced, but the ingediants uninspiring, and rather bland. The salsa in particuliar was bordering on being "off". I have lived in the mission for over ten years and eaten at every taqueria and truck around and i'm tired of hearing about this place as one of the best, it is not....

MUST HAVE TACOS!!! – The tacos here are similar to the old "Talk of the Town" Tacos, a business in Oakland that closed after the patriach past. ( a crying shame the family could not keep it together) You can taste this food JUST thinking about it! The kind of food that stays in your memory forever. Kinda pricey but I'm worth it! Parking is hard, I have been lucky. Sometimes hard to get a table, don't arrive starved. Take your time to experience it. I have no complaints!

TACOS FROM HEAVEN – This place must have the best burritos and tacos in San Francisco. There aren't too many good Mexican eateries in SF. I must say these folks are a step above the rest. I would recommend the crispy tacos with carnitas. It is a little pricey but well worth it. I don't know why anyone would go to another taqueria when you could get the best at La Taqueria.

shady burritos and – 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" with a cheese upgrade and a beer, so my intimidating burrito cost me ten bucks. When it came, looking like a toothpick and soggy to boot, I sucked it up and began eating. There was no cheese, nor did they stuff the money that I spent on upgrading (this is ridiculous) my burrito inside. I asked the lady inside to make me another, and had to wait until all the other customers' orders were taken (it was like the floor of the stock market). She told me it was in the bottom of the burrito. At this point, I could counter with ?you don't know which side I started with" but I held back. This place is in it for the money. It is a joke to see the burritos they dish out. Traditional my butt. I?d rather eat Taco Bell and that?s saying something!

Best taqueria – 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 so just take it to go.
