When it comes to Mexican food, there is a simple rule to follow. The sketchier an establishment looks, the better the food is.
This couldn’t be more true for El Tesoro Taqueria and Grill. This tiny little grill is located inside a liquor store on Geary in the Tenderloin of San Francisco. You can get a 40 of old English, tacos, crack and a lotto ticket all in one stop.
What makes it so delicious? Home made tortillas, fresh, spicy salsa, cheap tilapia and a sprinkle of dirty Tenderloin crack head energy.
My advice. Go to Hemlock Tavern on Polk. Enjoy the happy hour ($5 for a PBR and Shot of Jameson) then stumble down to El Tesoro for a fish taco that will blow your freakin’ mind!
