A Mexican Marina hotspot, Tacolicious draws a young and energetic crowd that fuels up on equal parts tacos and tequila, or on chilaquiles and Bloody Marias during weekend brunch. The menu uses many local and sustainable ingredients, but still keeps it affordable (and crowd pleasing, with chili con carne and taquitos). Tables are usually laden with made-to-order guacamole and platters of well-stuffed tacos (the carnitas and short-rib versions are especially full of flavor). You'll also see groups ordering rounds of "chupitos," easy-to-drink shots of tequila mixed with juices, from prickly pair to passion fruit. The pan con chocolate is a holdover from the previous restaurant's incarnation for a good reason—it's a delicious finish. If you are hard of hearing or don't want to speak in a raised voice, this is not the restaurant for you, unless you land one of the few outside tables. You can also try their equally bustling Mission District outpost, which has a tequila bar, Mosto.
