    We decided to eat here on a whim, and so happy we did! The food is really well seasoned, and fresh. The variety for non-meat eaters is good as well. The mushroom carnitas are delicious!! We loved their cocktails as well :)

    Crazy expensive for street tacos and very slim on the choices. All were tasty but for a round of drinks (3 of us), guacamole and chips and 1 taco each, it was nearly $100. Not even sure how that’s possible but we were in a hurry to get to a show and didn’t ask questions. Won’t be back. So many other great Mexican restaurants in The Mission.

    Can’t go wrong with TACOLICIOUS! Great food, service, ambience, and value—will be back! PS: if you’re the DD in your party, try the non-alk drink, SILAS… pineapple, coconut H2O, and ginger beer—deLISH! The manager even held the door and everyone greeted us farewell as we headed out… top notch! 😁👍

    Excellent tacos and bowls! Also many tempting options for vegetarians. Recommend the quinoa bowl, kale/potato tacos, and for carnivores, the excellent carbitas. Guacamole & chips are first rate, and tacos come with three salsas, including a citrussy habanero that is just the right amount of heat. Music was a little loud for my neurodiverse dining companion but otherwise nice ambience. Attentive, friendly service.

    I should have listened to the other reviews. Insanely expensive for street taco size tacos. You pay for the trendy atmosphere and “craft” cocktails. Taste was good but so are most mission Mexican restaurants. $45 per person with a na drink and 4 tacos is over the top. Oh and adding $1 per carna asada “upgrade? Service was good but that’s about the only positive. We each ordered 4 tacos and they came basically on a big platter. The server rambled off which was with and we had to fend for ourselves. For that price I expect a nice individual plated entree.

    Honestly this food is horrible. Basic and flavorless. Cheap tasting ingredients. 10 out of 10 do not recommend. I will say the service is awesome but don’t let the aesthetic photos deceive you. I spent almost $80 on the most average meal I’ve ever had.

    The quinoa bowl was fabulous. The tacos great(shrimp and mushroom). The chips were a bit stale but the salsa was excellent. Did have the wrong beer served but it was remedied fast. So noisy maybe server didn’t hear. The table next to us (ver close) were extremely loud. Could barely hear my dining friend

    The Mission on a Saturday night is a major cultural change from the sleepy Sunset neighborhood. Lots of motorcycles on Valencia, hipster central. But that’s the Mission. I felt the overall-dining experience didn’t live up to the reviews. The service was excellent, my carne asada taco very good. The carnitas taco the pork was little dry. The green sauce saved it. The place was loud ( which I’m OK with since my 24 yr old son likes to noodle on his phone. He is often not so much of a conversationalist. A man of few words). At one time there were three different types of music going. The bartenders mixing up drinks and the wait staff hustling their collective butts off provided he entertainment for me. My son and I decided we would go back there. No way would my wife enjoy the experience. She prefers a quieter dining experience. The venue was close to the Roxie so we got to the 8:30 showing of the King Crimson movie in plenty of time. And it was a big plus I could make a reservation on Open Table. A bit mixed but overall I will take any shared experience with my son I can get.

    I like the food. It’s very tasty. The service is friendly and efficient; almost too efficient. We arrived at 6pm and we were done by 645pm. The just slam the drinks, chips, guacamole and tacos at you 5 minutes after you order. We want to enjoy ourselves a bit. Next time I’ll order more slowly. Drinks and guac first. Then later order the entree.

    The service was great. There was a varied selection of tacos. Or should I say varied expensive tacos. The guacamole had no flavor and was extremely overpriced. The drinks were small but delicious. Being an SF native this place is great if you’re an out of owner and don’t know any better. I will not be returning

    This was a mid afternoon meet up with an out of town work colleague. I’ve been to this Tacolicious many times but my colleague from San Diego had never been. The other two of us live nearby. We wanted to sit outside and the weather cooperated. The side patio was empty when we first arrived around 3:30 on a Tuesday and that served us well to have some privacy. The food was delicious but I think the spiceyness of the habanero taco was muted that day. The drinks were generous and kept coming. The ultimate check seemed higher than usual probably from all those drinks! Still, it’s my go to place for visitors in the Mission.

    Good option for a quick bite in the Mission. Mushroom, chicken, carnitas, spicy shrimp tacos are all solid choices. Tasty cocktails too. Service is friendly, professional, and moves fast. Not a place to linger and enjoy quiet conversation.
