I've been thinking about these tacos since I had them 5 months ago. I got delivery when I was staying at the Hilton Financial District. I had the fried chicken tacos (nick's way) and elote. Even though this food was room temperature at best after...More

The tacos are marvelous - make sure you get them Nick's way, which involves a hard taco inside a soft taco - and everything else is serviceable. Food is not easily distinguishable from other Mexican places in town (with the exception of "Nick's way" tacos)...More

Nice food but very overpriced. The restaurant doesn’t even look like it’s up and running from outside either I wasn’t sure if it was open or shut down. Can get a average overpriced lunch here.

Nick's crispy taco is a must stop place each time I'm here for a visit. The place is clean, fast, friendly, cash only. My new obsession is the carne asada supreme burrito!!

In the evenings, this place is a bar. During the day, it still looks like a bar. A bar where you are having your lunch. So, to be honest: I had a bit mixed feelings eating there. Is the food clean, can the food be...More

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
