Reading the reviews I decided to walk the 20 minutes from Union Square to find Nick's Crispy Tacos. When I first walked up I wasn't sure if it was a restaurant or a "club" - the atmosphere was definitely not what I expected. On walking...More

I really wanted to like the tacos here and to be honest the fish tacos were not bad but they were not great either. Considering that we researched and read reviews on Nick's tacos I really left feeling underwhelmed. The lady at the register was...More

Nick's was mentioned to us in passing by the guide on our walking tour who claimed they were the best tacos in SF, so we decided to hunt it out in the evening and we weren't disappointed! I had the crispy chicken (Nick's way, of...More

Came here with a friend (local). What a great place. Another great, authentic bar with great food. Order the delicious tacos at the counter, find a table, enjoy some drinks, good music and amazing food. Well worth a visit for a unique non-touristy experience.

Can't believe I've never had a crispy taco before! Delicious soft tacos made even better by lightly deep frying the corn tortilla. A must try!!

Let me start off by saying this place is a bit strange: you order your food at the counter near the entrance using a menu written on a blackboard on the wall. Then, you go sit down in velvet red booths or hightops/tables scattered throughout...More

Had another light lunch today. Ordered vegetariano taco, although it was all veggies it was flavorful, big serving and satisfied my hunger.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
