Taqueria La Cumbre Mexican Restaurant has a location in San Francisco and San Mateo. We tried the one in San Mateo, located near Caltrain. They have everything from burritos to tacos to caldos to plates. The San Francisco location has lines often times. Our last visit was in 2017. The great thing about his place is the parking lot!

Decor, Vibe – Old fast food joint that has been taken over. Families, locals, people of all ages were dining. Not a lot of Hispanics though.

Taqueria La Cumbre Food Picks:

Super Nachos ($8.95) with carne asada, black beans, guacamole, mild salsa was pretty huge and surprisingly good. Quality meat, beans and chips. Average guacamole. One of the better dishes here.

La Cumbre Mexican Restaurant Chicken Taco

Chicken Taco ($2.85) was of decent size and had a good amount of chicken. The hot salsa was really hot.

La Cumbre Mexican Restaurant Prawn Taco

Prawn Deluxe Taco ($4.95) with beans, rice and salsa did not have a lot of prawns, but was flavorful. More sauce than most, making it a little mushy.


La Cumbre Mexican Restaurant Horchata

Horchata ($3.25, large) was very good. Very Sweet and lots of cinnamon flavor. Cut this down with some water.


La Cumbre Mexican Restaurant Chicken Quesadilla

Chicken Quesadilla ($7.50) had red and green bell peppers added in. It was pretty massive. This was a decent dish, nothing extra special to it. In 2017 they started rolling it up like a burrito.

Petite Al Pastor Burrito ($4.75, Regular size $7.95) was reasonably sized but was far too spicy considering we wanted mild.  The meat quality was not high.

Horchata ($2.50) for 16oz was average.  A bit more powdery than we would like.


Taqueria La Cumbre Mexican Restaurant has solid Mexican food although it took a while for it to come. Compared to nearby Pancho Villa, the food is about the same quality or less. The Roach Coaches in San Francisco and even in San Mateo offer better fare.
