Cabeza Means Head
Beef head tacos from La Taqueria are heavy on the onions and cilantro. And delicious.
A Tale Of Two Tacos
The advice: try the tacos. Lines flow out the door on a regular basis, and she estimated that more than half of the orders placed are for tacos. Determined to spread the taco love, she insisted I take a photo to share with the world.
Left: chicken. Right: carne asada with guacamole.

A frequent consumer of Anna's Taqueria, Nate noted that the La Taqueria quesadillas are slightly more greasy and bi-fold when compared to the tri-fold Anna's version.
Hot Sauce Application Analysis
There are two prevailing theories:
- Pre Production | Applied by burrito constructor
- Post Production | Applied by burrito consumer
Pre Production Pros:
- Strong distribution with ingredients
- Care free eating experience
- One handed operation
- Cannot season to taste
- Limited choice in hot sauce variety
- Season to taste
- Sample multiple sauces per burrito
- Poor distribution
- Repetitive application required
Plus La Taqueria is delicious, which doesn't hurt.
We hope he gets there.
Phil, pictured here at La Taqueria, one of San Francisco's most famous taqueria's, takes a mean bite out of a burrito. Did you know he once ate three in one sitting?
La Taqueria Neon Claims Global Crown
Some things are a matter of taste, but after a year of traveling the world, I hesitate to call the sign a liar.
Adjunct Burrito Analyst
Jessie knows burritos, though she is not a Junior Burrito Analyst. Perhaps she should be. For the purpose of this burrito hunt, we'll call her an Adjunct Burrito Analyst.
La Taqueria was packed. The line loops around from the cashier (located by the front door) to the back wall and then back to the front door. With this many people waiting, there must be pots of gold at the end of the burrito queue, or at least delicious tortilla delights.
There was no gold. From the mid-chew smile on Jessie's face, you can bet we left happy.
Welcome To La Taqueria
They claim to have, "The Best Tacos & Burritos In The Whole World." That's quite a statement. Tell me more.
Seating is provided, but often unavailable, which reminds me of Tito's in LA. The Mission Street location is always packed.
The menu is sparse, containing only the essentials: burritos, tacos, and quesadilla. There is no rice in the entire restaurant, and meat is added by hand - bare hand. Don't question it. Just eat.
