This is a super place to grab some quick and very good Mexican food. You wait in line and sit on benches, but it's a wonderful stop.

My local friend took me here, saying it was his favorite burrito place in the mission. After sampling a few other places, I have to agree. Size and price are average for the area, but the taste is fantastic. Everyone has their favorite place to go, so expect a lot of in fighting. My advice, get out there and try... More

Strolled Mission asking locals for best burrito shop. Definitely lots of opinions on this. Seems as if Mission District has lots of favorites, but I went with this option and it was soooooo freaking good. Got the chicken burrito, loved it! Can't go wrong here.

Their menu isn't the biggest, but what they offer was good! The atmosphere is great and portions relative to price are good too. You go in, order at the counter, you get a ticket, then your number gets called out. Not a classy place for a date, but a great place to get to have a conversation with someone. I... More

We visited for a quick bite to eat. We had tacos and burritos. It was a nice place, with an authentic atmosphere. The service was not impressive, but again it's not a place where you would expect such. Our orders were take and we got the food fairly quickly. And it was delicious! The burrito is massive and if you... More

Great atmosphere at this busy taqueria. My wife loved her super tacos (al pastor y pollo) but my vege burrito was booooring, overloaded with beans and minimal flavour.

The burrito was delicious (marinated pork). The place doesn't look fancy but don't judge by the appearance, the food is great. It is also located in a not fancy area but nothing to be scared of

Went a few times while in San Fran ate in and take away. The fish tacos were great. Very authentic. Large servings and great taste. Good value for money. Very quick service and have some great beers as well.

I been here in SF for 3 weeks and have found to have a liking to this place, the burritos are great and a good price. Tacos are good as well and tortas also. Place looks like a hole in the wall but it's actually clean. Even the restrooms are clean. I give this place a thumbs up and I'm... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
