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 always fresh and free. The two taco locations are great for a quick pick up... 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.

Very authentic mexican tacos reasonably priced. The constant stream of people coming through and ordering platters of tacos speaks to the value, quality and popularity of the food sold here.

My son and I stopped by for lunch while spending the afternoon in Vancouver and we were very impressed! Food was delicious and fresh and the staff were very friendly and fast. My only regret is that I only ordered two tacos.

There might be a line, but it moves quickly so definitely wait it out. This is by far the best taco experience I've had in Vancouver. The variety is stellar and they taste phenomenal. It's easy to get four different tacos to really try out the menu. It's a small shop but we were able to come in and spend... More

Staff was friendly and service was good. I felt like I had found a new regular kitchen but unfortunately the tacos are small. Like less than half a taco small. 4 for 9.95 seemed like a great deal until I saw how tiny they were. I had to go to Wendy's after because I was still hungry

Authentic Mexican street food. The location is great on Cambie St. near Broadway. This is a small place but business is booming at least when we were there. Each of us had a four taco special and you can mix and match the particular items that you prefer. The service is friendly and efficient. There are several special of the... More

Muy bueno tacos! Have finally decided my fave is the Carnitas, absolutely loaded with flavour! Four taos for $10, made to order and gorgeously delish! Very friendly counter service and servers. Eat in or take out. Gets very busy at certain times of the day, so go before lunchtime, mid-afternoon or evening, if possible. Tacos are served on very fresh... More

We stopped at this place to eat some tacos. To our surprise, the tacos were not all that great and they cost a pretty penny. We've gone to another taco place down the street and they were a lot better. We got more food at this other place then we did at this place, and the price was the same.... More

Little pinche tacos - must try the chicken mole ones. So good! Be aware of the lunch rush. You get 4 tacos for $9.50, and since they are so delicious, the line goes out the door.

Description
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.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
