In the evenings, this place is a bar. During the day, it still looks like a bar. A bar where you are having your lunch. So, to be honest: I had a bit mixed feelings eating there. Is the food clean, can the food be...More

Friendly service, loved the vibe and the decor of the place. Food is not the best mexican food but it is good and cheap. Keep in mind that this is a cash only place! Had a great time with my friends and will be back!

This doesn't shatter the earth with creativity, but it is a solid place to get a taco or ten and a drink.

Reading the reviews I decided to walk the 20 minutes from Union Square to find Nick's Crispy Tacos. When I first walked up I wasn't sure if it was a restaurant or a "club" - the atmosphere was definitely not what I expected. On walking...More

Popped into this place after the Mexican we searched for in San Francisco closed. Walked in and were seated right away. Place was very busy as they have specials on Tuesday nights. Ordered right away and the carne asada tacos "nicks way" were phenomenal. Cheese...More

This has got to be one of the most eclectic ideas that just works - an authentic Mexican restaurant tucked into the side of a bar that otherwise wouldn't have food. Have never had a bad dish here, it's all cooked to order and very...More

We ate a late, second dinner at Nick's Crispy Taco's on a Sunday evening in mid February. It was a nice walk from our Air BnB, located on an interesting street away from the tourist traps of the waterfront. We placed our order at the...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
