La Taqueria

Hours:FRI

You’ve most likely heard of this famous Mission-style burrito spot, which makes a great rice-less burrito with meat, pico de gallo, and pinto or refried beans. But we’ll tell you flat out: this won’t be the greatest burrito, and it certainly won’t upstage El Farolito’s and El Castillito’s, which are some of the best in the city. But if this is your first time in San Francisco, La Taqueria is worth a visit, even if just to see for yourself what all the hype is about. Order the carne asada super with avocado and melted cheese—and get it dorado (crisped on the plancha)—and you’ll leave here happy.
