Nick's Crispy Tacos, San Francisco, CA

Nick's Crispy Tacos Restaurant Review

: Nick's Crispy Tacos, located in the funky space that also houses Rouge nightclub, uses local, top-quality ingredients including Niman Ranch meats and Fulton Valley poultry. Salsa and guacamole are made in-house. Try the pescado taco, featuring Baja-style fried fish wrapped in a warm corn tortilla and topped with salsa and lime mayonnaise: the outside is light and crisp while the white flesh inside remains moist and flaky. Chicken, prawn, grilled fish and meatless tacos are other options, along with burritos and quesadillas. But regulars will tell you that the carnitas taco "Nick's Way" --- braised shredded pork with pico de gallo and pinto beans in a hard shell tucked into a soft tortilla with guacamole and Jack cheese --- is the ringer, and among the best tacos in town.
