El Tonayense San Francisco Truck

El Tonayense is a  Mexican restaurant with lots of mobile food trucks throughout San Francisco.  They have been featured on PBS’s Check Please TV show.  They are parked on the side of the Best Buy at 14th St and Harrison in San Francisco so we decided to give them a try even though we were not hungry.
Decor, Vibe – ‘Roach Coach’ mobile dining with tacos, burritos, and Tortas in a variety of meats including brains, head and cheek.

El Tonayense San Francisco Carne Asada Taco

Carne Asada Taco ($1.75) came on a fresh tortilla with good quantities of very delicious meat, onions, cilantro, salsa, lime wedge, and some sauce. We can see why people like this place, this was better than most Mexican restaurants.


Took about 5 minutes to get a taco.  You have to eat on the sidewalk or take it away, so this is not a conventional place for food. If we had a truck in the area, we would definitely consider getting food from them again. Cash only. El Norteno Taco Truck is another top notch Mexican Taco Truck in San Francisco, while Taco Peralta rocks in San Mateo.  El Farolito is one of our favorite Mexican Restaurants in San Francisco.

Typical locations: 14th St/Harrison, 19th St/Harrison, 22nd St/Harrison, 16th St/Shotwell, Jerrold/Phelps.
