Fill It Up – $1 Tacos and $2 Chelas at Taqueria Pancho Villa and El Toro

Generally speaking, this small family of taquerias isn’t the cheapest in the city, but the quality is better than most (super-bland Can-Cun anyone?)

Despite their central locations, they aren’t resting on their cash cow’s security, and if you’ve caught their charmingly goofy commercials you’ll know that they have recently added a happy hour.

Monday – Friday, 3pm – 5pm, you can get any regular taco for a dollar a piece!  Not an authentic Mexican price, but pretty damn close.  Beers are $2 and agues are $1 as well, so pull up a chair and go to town. ¡Provecho!

Pancho Villa
3071 16th St. btw Mission and Valencia

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inabilty to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999. By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for people like the SF Bay Guardian. He also likes to enoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
