Description
Starting with the special flair that only Nick Fasanella can bring to the menu, this famed restaurateur has created a modern take on the taqueria while grounded in strong traditions. From the a taco ... Read more
done Nick’s Way to one of our special burritos, our kitchen prepares each item with careful attention. Meats are slow cooked and infused with flavor. Produce and fish are fresh as they are purchased each morning to ensure an unsurpassed quality. Even our margaritas are prepared fresh and for each customer using agave nectar. The result is a mouthwatering goodness that will leave you wanting to come back for more. Doug Marschke, co-owner of The Taco Shop, has been friends with Nick for about 5 years and convinced Nick that he was the right person to fill a niche in the taco-dry neighborhood of the Sunset. He's also a proud University of Michigan alum. You can catch him working the bar when he's not traveling the world.

Good tequila selection. I would stick to either the carne Asada or carnitas. The chicken is pretty basic.

A friendly sports bar, with a laid back atmosphere. While the tacos are amazing, my favorite are their burritos, especially the San Diego! The perfect place to stop in and catch a Giants game with the locals!

You don't have to go all the way to Polk street to get your fix of Nick's tacos!

I've heard great things about Underdog's tacos and wanted to find out myself. I ordered Pescado "Baja" fish tacos with Nick's Way for the ultimate taste. The serving size for the taco was decent for $5.25. I would come back here if I was in the area. Watching football game or baseball game seem like an ideal place.

Their service is a bit slow for a weekday afternoon. Took quite awhile for the food to come out. They also did not have some drinks on their menu when it clearly said "special of the day", way to crush my excitement. Other than that, the place is great.

This is one of my favorite places to watch sports in San Francisco. It's out in the Sunset district and is sort of out of place among all the Chinese markets and Vietnamese food restaurants, but it's a gem. A lot of people come here just for the tacos - and they're well worth it. But the divey sportsbar feel, the chill clientele, the hoops game that gets funner the more drunk you are - all make this a winner.

My one and only piece of advice is get a Nick's Way Taco! Whenever I go here I get a chicken and beef one because they are that good... Also, RED SAUCE!!

Forgot how awesome their tacos are here. Grab a plate of 3 street tacos of your choice and a Mexican Coke. Perfecto!
