Do not wear your good white shorts or your fancy top to this place: you are guaranteed to spill on it. They do provide napkins for the spillage, but the napkins are tiny and placing one on your lap still leaves a lot to be...More

Went for a quick bite before the comedy show at Yukyuk's. Both the beef lengua and carnitas were very good. Washed them down with a frozen mezcal margarita. Wished we had more time to enjoy a couple more. We will definitely be back!

Dined here for dinner while in Vancouver in June 2017. Very busy place, absolutely packed. Bar seating in the middle of the restaurant and some tables off to the side. Good variety of options from quesadillas, tacos, and burritos. I had a daily special taco...More

The tacos are delicious, freshly made, and extremely affordable. I'm not from Canada so when I do get the chance to visit Vancouver, I always stop by to get a plate or two.

Unreal tacos, a little expensive but worth it. Great salsas and other extras. They recently added burritos and they are absolutely delicious. Go on Wednesday for their taco deal! Awesome to take them down to the water a few blocks down.

These two establishments, along with their full service restaurant, La Mezcaleria, (to be reviewed separately) are a huge relief from the tex-mex glop than normally passes for Mexican food in this city. Their tacos are delicious, their menu is varied and the salsas and pickles...More

This place was quick and the tacos were great. I had 2 meat and 2 veggie and they each had their own flavours and ingredients. Could be spicier, but that's just my preference. Will be going back again.

We make our tacos from traditional recipes with local, organic and sustainable products, when possible. Our menu offers different types of fillings which can be served as a Taco (soft tortilla, made locally & homemade style) or as a Quesadilla. La Taqueria was born in 2009, through the idea of creating a taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. These tacos are usually the best, a real Mexican tradition.
