I love to snack when I travel, because I love to taste test as many things as possible. But if you’re walking a lot and doing a lot on your trip, you’re going to need more than snacks to keep yourself going! On our recent short trip to San Francisco, we chose these three places for a quick but fueling lunch.
La Taqueria – Tacos – Mission District
Recommended by many locals we met during the trip, La Taqueria does tacos well. If you can, go right when it opens, because otherwise you will be standing in line for a bit! We tried the carne asada, pork, and chicken tacos and would recommend all of them! They’re pretty big and very filling. Sit, enjoy, and be on your way ready to take on the rest of your day!
In-N-Out – Burgers – Fisherman’s Wharf
A California classic. Go with the printed menu basics or order pretty much anything animal style to really fill up. The only one in the city proper of San Francisco is at the wharf. We grabbed this for lunch after our boat tour! In my opinion it’s a must any time I’m in California.
Monk’s Kettle – Gastropub – Mission District
Cozy pub right off Valencia street in the mission district. They have a pretty extensive beer list as well. Do some shopping on Valencia, stop in and get a beer, fries and their steak and brussels sprouts salad. And sit outside, because you’re in California.
Do you have a favorite lunch in San Francisco? Where should I go next time?
