Uno Dos Tacos is the authentic Mexican taqueria and tequila bar located right where you need us. Imagine a colorful Mexican plaza tucked inside San Francisco’s Financial District and SOMA neighborhood. Our philosophy is simple: keep it fun and make it fresh. We handcraft five salsas, 100 pounds of carnitas, and every tortilla and chip in-house, every day. Our beans are always fresh. If there’s juice in your drink, we just squeezed it. And we always keep the atmosphere fun, whether enjoying tacos on the outdoor patio or winding down with a margarita at the bar. Salud!

Luis’ culinary roots go back to a big family and warm kitchen in Guadalajara, Jalisco, where his mom and aunt gave him a taste for cooking from scratch. No matter how big the meal – the tortillas would be made by hand and the salsas carefully crafted to bring out the flavor. To this day Luis’ favorite foods, including Carnitas and Mole, are among the most time-consuming to prepare. But that’s what makes them rewarding. “I always wanted to open a restaurant that captured the real flavor of Mexico,” says Luis. “Homemade and deeply personal.” You can see exactly how Luis makes it all work, thanks to the big expo kitchen at Uno Dos Tacos allows you to be part of the action.
Chef Flores practices the handmade, slow-cooking family tradition of native Guadalajara to nurture his carne asada, carnitas, lengua, simmered shredded chicken tinga, and beer-battered (Negra Modelo) pescado. Vegetarian dishes get the same attention to detail, quality ingredients and chance to show off. To top everything off, we have salsa. Five different salsas, in fact, each made fresh daily and specially paired to spark the flavor of each taco.
From one convenient location, Uno Dos Tacos lets you explore over fifty different tequilas, from the beet-infused to a very smoking habanero, over 30 mezcals, and a world of other refreshments.
Discover our signature Cazuela, a massive serving of Tlaquepaque fresh juices, tequila and agave (limit two per person.) Venture into our Cereza Negra mezcal, a favorite among SF bourbon lovers. Sample the cosmopolitan flavor of Mexico City with one of our signature cocktails. Or settle into a margarita as exquisitely traditional as our food.
Tacos on the corner. That’s where you find the best taquerias in Mexico. The same goes for San Francisco. Just around the corner from Market Street, in the alley at 2nd & Stevenson, we’ve created an oasis: a colorful Mexican plaza in the heart of the Financial District, the gateway to SOMA and just blocks from Union Square. Indoor/outdoor dining, picnic tables, umbrellas and a totally simpatía atmosphere. This is your neighborhood taqueria.
