Home of the original Mission-style burrito, still a giant in a neighborhood now filled with dozens of imitators.

There’s no shortage of taquerias serving the Mission-style burrito in San Francisco but the simply-named La Taqueria is an undisputed favorite. For under $10, this no-frills joint will serve you a giant foil-wrapped version filled with beans, cheese, salsa and meats ranging from carne and pollo asado to carnitas, chorizo and lengua (you won’t find any rice in the burritos here, a sore point for some burrito connoisseurs). As the name implies, La Taqueria also features tacos, quesadillas, aguas frescas and super-fresh guacamole.
