La Taqueria, San Francisco, CA

La Taqueria Restaurant Review

: With its distinctive whitewashed façade, street-side seating and gleaming tiles, La Taqueria is perhaps the most visually appealing bargain in the Mission. Yet no one comes for the décor; they line up for the burritos, quesadillas, tacos and perhaps the most authentic fruit drinks in the Bay Area. Despite prices built for a bare-bones taqueria, the carnitas cooked in lard are meltingly tender, the chorizo is spicy and lean and the carne asada is the best in the neighborhood. Diners who request their burrito "dorado style" will be rewarded with a wrap grilled to a golden crisp. Domestic and Mexican beers are also on offer. You'll have to go elsewhere for dessert, though.
