I love this place. Mexican fusion cuisine done right. A tad pretentious but that's the Mission for you.

Not bad, but not great. This place is great more so for the atmosphere and drinks. The tacos were good but not as great as a lot of people hype it up to be.

Tacolicious is a place I recommend all the time. Most of us like Mexican food, we all crave meat (and/or veggies) wrapped in a tortilla, so this restaurant hits the spot for a variety of people.

Hipster vibe, good music, full bar, and great finger foods. That's what you'll get here and it's all worth it!

One of my favorite things about this place? The Taco, Beer, and Tequila shot combo!

Also, location! You're right in the heart of the thriving Mission neighborhood. After a great meal, you're a few steps away from cool shops and bars.

Fun spot to grab a drink and some bites. The tacos are OK, little too salty and greasy, but the guacamole and margs are great! Tends to get really busy on the weekends, so plan to wait.

Despite the hype, this place manages to serve good food. Not worth the crazy wait times on a weekend night, but definitely worth a try.

Tacolicious has delicious tacos and much, much more. They also have salads, soup, and of course, churros with chocolate.

These tacos are truly delicious. So, aptly named. Tacolicious! You should order by volume so taco price you pay decreases per taco. Long wait for big groups, nice if you're on a casual date. Great sauces! I like the yellow one.

Good tacos (obviously) and margaritas. When I say good tacos, I mean goood. I'm not the biggest taco girl, but I will say that much. I especially like the shortrib and the shot-and-a-beer braised chicken. Ask to sit in Eleonora's section; from the very first time she was our server, we loved her! Lots of energy going on here. It's undoubtedly a popular place, but the tables turn quickly. It's a bit of a trendy spot - not fine dining, but surprisingly nice for a "taqueria."

Best Mexican restaurant that I've been to so far (in SF, that is). Tacolicious is a trendy, upscale watering hole and restaurant. The drinks are amazing and the tacos are yummy. Tacolicious is a chain in SF, but each one has a very different vibe. Personally, I'll stick to Valencia. A little less plastic than the Marina. Cheers!

Omg! It's like taco fantasy land here!

I'd suggest ordering a queso and guacamole for the table.

Then go for the shared tacos deal. I loved the fish taco and the beer chicken.

Tacorrific! Can't say enough great things about this place, from the Paul Madonna mural to the full bar to the exciting new taco fillings. I think it's time we all just admit it: fish tacos are little more than fish and chips, minus the chips + soft tortilla -- and the world is a better place for it. Great menu. And try the chocolate taco, which has an amazing, slightly cinnamon-flecked flavor that is reminiscent of Ibarra chocolate sold in bodegas.

Modern atmosphere, great food, fast and friendly service, Tacolicious is a good choice for those wanting to try a modern take on Mexican food. They got us from the starter chips/salsa they serve when you arrive to the amazing sweet plantains (you have to try it, it is perfection in a plate) appetizer to everything else.

I had the camarones al diablo with a side of semi-traditional refried beans and I loved both. The camarones are cooked to perfection and the beans are so tasty you will find yourself "scraping" the little plate to make sure you got everything out of it. Certainly a new favorite for Mexican food in SF.

Probably the best Mexican place i've been in San Francisco. Their Tacos are amazing, not super spicy and very tasty. They also have a nice selection of draft beers like my favorite Negra Modelo.

Upscale tacos and other Mexican fare in a hip environment. Our waitress recommended the rock cod tacos (which were awesome) and I also tried the carnitas tacos which were really good too. I had a bite of the "shot and a beer braised chicken" taco -- I wish I had ordered that one myself! It was super flavorful. Perhaps the most surprising hit was the kale salad. I ordered it simply to balance out all the meat I was going to eat, but it ended up being one of my favorite dishes! It was packed full of ingredients -- apples, quinoa, almonds, persimmons...it was amazing.

If you like spicy drinks, try the Pasion.

One of the twin restaurants of Tacolicious and Mosto in the Mission. Tacolicious is supposed to be a great taco place and Mosto has a full selection of tequila. I like the open kitchen of Tacolicious. It is always fun to look at cooks work in the kitchen. They have quite a few selection of non-alcoholic drinks. I had Moss which is a mix of passion fruit, pineapple and sparkling lemonade. I have to say it was great. There are more selection of appetizers than taco varieties, and the appetizers definitely taste better too. We had tuna tostadas which was fresh and yummy. We also had a set of 4 tacos, one chicken, one short-ribs, one veggie and one special shrimp. Each taco is pretty substantial, but the taste is underwhelming. I'd say maybe get a few appetizers and skip the tacos.
