    This place is just incredible every time. It's all good, but I love the tacos.

    Best tacos in the city and none of the super taco nonsense. Lengua is standout. Other meats are great as well, but the carnitas is a bit crunchy - fine in a taco but not good in a burrito.

    Stop in once for tacos after you pick up that weird A/V cable you needed from Best Buy and soon you'll be mindlessly stopping in for a bite any time you pass a member of the Tonayense fleet. Read more

    While their tacos are obviously good, I actually the like the burritos better here. Not as huge and dry as many in SF, definitely order with guacamole, hold the crema and cheese (too rich).

    Get the tacos & get a taste of multiple meats! They are small so mix n match. Don't be afraid of things like lengua and cabeza.

    Love their carne asada burrito for its serious street-food scrappiness. What this burrito lacks in girth it makes up for in grease and flavor. Read more

    If you twirl in front of the truck three times as you give your order and the taco trucks give you a thumbs up you'll for sure get extra beans on your burrito

    Yes, it’s on 4 wheels, and the dining room is nonexistent. But El Tonayense happens to be one of this city’s most revered Mexican food fixtures. – Samantha Brown

    The tacos are great, but if you're really hungry, the burritos are excellent also. I'd rate them my current favorite.

    Arguably the best tacos in the mission. If you see a white truck instead of the usual yellow truck, do not worry! Same taco truck, same great tacos - just a different truck in the fleet

    Best SF tacos, IMO. This one is the best of the 3 El Tonayense taco trucks on Harrison St. The second best is the one in front of Best Buy and I'd just avoid the third one up towards 24th.
