The 5 Best Taco Tuesday Deals in San Francisco

If you’ve been in San Francisco for longer than an hour, you’ve probably already noticed that meals here can be wildly expensive. One burrito can easily run you ten dollars, and a full plate of food in a restaurant for lunch or dinner is most likely at least $15. But if you’re here on a Tuesday, you’re on a budget, and you like tacos, you’re in luck! One thing San Francisco does right food-wise is having some of the best “Taco Tuesday” deals we’ve ever heard of. Lettuce taco ‘bout them. We hope this awesome deals will make up for that cheesy pun. Oops, we did it again. Seriously, these deals are grate.

THE PLACE: Uno Dos Tacos - all ages 

THE ADDRESS: 595 Market Street

THE DEAL: two tacos for $5

WHEN: 4 p.m. - 8 p.m.

BEST FOR: If you’re staying at Pacific Tradewinds and don’t want to travel too far for your tacos

Conveniently located a 10 minute walk from Pacific Tradewinds Hostel, Uno Dos Tacos offers two tacos for $5 every Tuesday from 4 p.m. until they close at 8. Or, $2.50 per taco if you’re bad at math. Or just not that hungry. You can choose between beef, pork, chicken, fish, or vegetarian for your taco experience. Make sure you buy tacos in multiples of two in order to take advantage of the deal. For example, two tacos will be $2.50 each, but three will be at full price. 

One of our favorite things about Uno Dos Tacos is they have an awesome outdoor eating area, and also blankets you can put on if it’s cold outside! How’s that for good service. It gets pretty crowded here on Taco Tuesday, so come early!

THE PLACE: Nick’s Crispy Tacos - 21+

THE ADDRESS: 1500 Broadway

THE DEAL: $2 for one street taco

WHEN: 4:30 p.m. - 10 p.m

BEST FOR: If you like your tacos with a side of fiesta

Every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. until 10, Nick’s Crispy Tacos has street tacos for $2 apiece, $4 margaritas, a DJ spinning club hits all night, and a packed dance floor. If you’re planning on starting your Tuesday with tacos and ending with tequila, Nick’s is a great place to get a little of both. Check their Facebook page for more deals and details. 

THE PLACE: Teeth - 21+

THE ADDRESS: 2323 Mission Street

THE DEAL: $1 tacos

WHEN: 4 p.m. - 2 a.m.

BEST FOR: The ideal end to a day in Dolores Park (or start to a night out in the Castro)

Nestled in the heart of the Mission District, Teeth is home to DOLLAR TACOS. Yep, you read that right! You can pick from beef, pork, chicken, fish, or vegetarian. The tacos are a little small, so if you’re hungry, don’t limit yourself to just one, especially if you’re also considering indulging in their other Taco Tuesday deal, which is 2x1 margaritas. That’s right: pay for one margarita and they’ll give you two. They also have a patio, so on days where Karl is in hiding, get to Teeth early to soak up the sunshine, sip margaritas and enjoy your cheap, cheesy taco goodness. Yes, the San Francisco fog has a name, and it’s Karl. Follow him on Twitter.

THE PLACE: Taco Shop at Underdog’s - all ages

THE ADDRESS: 1824 Irving St, San Francisco, CA 94122

THE DEAL: $2 street tacos 

WHEN: 4:30 p.m. until midnight

Located off of 19th Avenue in the Sunset, the Taco Shop at Underdog’s is a popular sports bar with an awesome Taco Tuesday deal. Every Tuesday, get their delicious street tacos for $2 each! Pick between carne asada, carnitas, chicken, chorizo or veggie. Each one is topped with cilantro and onions. They also offer $3 Tecates to wash it all down with. Get there early to snag a seat, because it gets extremely crowded.

THE PLACE: Underdog’s Too - all ages

THE ADDRESS: 3600 Taraval St, San Francisco, CA 94116

THE DEAL: $2 street tacos 

WHEN: 4:30 p.m. until midnight

BEST FOR: The perfect end to a beach day

We know what you’re thinking: what! There’s two places with the same name?! Nah. This is just their second location, with the same deals with the added bonus of being right on the beach, so you can walk over and watch a sunset before or after your $2 tacos.

Please note that all the awesome places we just named do tend to get pretty crowded pretty quickly. Turns out everyone and their mother wants tacos for under $3. Show up early and know that you might need to wait before you can get a seat. But hey, for a taco this cheap in San Francisco, a bit of a wait and some crowds are definitely worth it.
