Mission Taco Joint

Map & Directions 6235 Delmar Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63130


Riverfront Times' Description

Located in University City, Mission Taco Joint clearly has nothing to hide — you can actually watch its workers making fresh tortillas through a window on the Delmar Boulevard side of the restaurant. There's also a walk-up window and an outdoor standing area, both of which provide a delicious venue for people-watching. Inside, Mission is almost always packed, but if you can find a seat, the food — a modern reinterpretation of traditional Mexican dishes like burritos, tortas and tacos — is worth the wait. Brothers Adam and Jason Tilford brought their expertise to Mission from Tortillaria and Milagro Modern Mexican, two renowned local eateries, and their attention to detail shines through in the food. The menu mingles classics like carne asada with slightly less expected items like nopales (cactus) and grilled tofu tacos. At Mission, the longer you linger, the more you'll find yourself scrutinized by a pack of hungry, vulture-like customers, eyeballing you from the waiting area. Hold your ground — snag a side order of "street corn," order another round of roast duck and crispy pork belly tacos — and save room for a churro.

    Must try the Care Asada Taco - the best.

    The Piscojito isn't sweet as tradiational mojitos but the pisco adds another dimension of flavor. The bright mint & tart of lemon juice helped give the drink fantastic balance. http://bit.ly/1blM1vC

    Holy shit. The carne asada fries are one of the best things I've ever eaten.

    Way better than Gringo. Get the Duck taco
