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!!

Friendly service, loved the vibe and the decor of the place. Food is not the best mexican food but it is good and cheap. Keep in mind that this is a cash only place! Had a great time with my friends and will be back!

This doesn't shatter the earth with creativity, but it is a solid place to get a taco or ten and a drink.

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

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
