Description: Tacolicious is by no means a traditional taqueria-you won't find burritos here. What started out in the summer of 2009 as a little taco stand at the Thursday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market with a fittingly frivolous name, has become a sit-down, cocktail-driven restaurant, 120 tequilas strong. Tacos anchor a menu that extends to dishes such as beet salad with grapefruit and pumpkin seeds, tuna tostadas, grilled squid served Veracruz-style, albondigas, shrimp a la diabla, and toasted coconut flan. Like many native Californians, Mexican food is in us. Though we grew up traveling to Mexico regularly (and still do), it took a trip to Mexico City-where the food is served in settings as sophisticated and urban as you'll find anywhere in the world-for us to realize that tacos don't have to be relegated to street food or a corner mom-'n'-pop. We're proud to be based in San Francisco, a town where the words local, sustainable and organic have become so redundant that they make you want to yawn. But just in case you were wondering about our menu: The answer is almost always, "Yes, yes and yes."

I love the tacos because they taste good and are a lot of choices. This is my place and I love it so much. So darn good. Love the cocktails too.

“So many other options”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

From an atmosphere standpoint, this restaurant is great. There were a lot of people around and, while noisy, it was entertaining. It is a small restaurant though and the wait can be long. The food was not fabulous. The butternut squash taco was lacking in flavor, while the brussel sprouts were drenched in lime juice. The drunken beans had a strange flavor as well. While it is a fun place, I would not recommend the food.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We had some great tacos and ceviche, right on Chestnut ave. there are lots of places to eat on this street but we decided on it because it had a lot of people and we now know why. It seems to be a local favorite.
