At La Taqueria, it’s not just about the food—it’s an experience. While folks come for the mouthwatering Mexican dishes, they find themselves staying for the extraordinary selection of specialty tequilas and cocktails. These specialty drinks are what turns every visit into a truly memorable occasion.

La Taqueria is now opening a new location at 601 West Hastings, just around the corner from their current spot at Hastings and Seymour.
