Very good tacos. In general, fast service but staff could be a little friendlier. Family oriented. I would go again

I went on Taco Tuesday and I was quite impressed with the grilled chicken and grilled steak tacos. It was very inexpensive and the tacos were DELICIOUS!!!! Definitely check out this spot....

My wife and I love Mexican fare. So we stopped at El Zorro and had a very good lunch. We shared a plate of nachos, my wife had the soft tacos and I ordered a burrito. The food was prepared in typical Mexican style and had excellent flavor. My burrito substituted the rice/beans for French fries which gave it a... More

Love going here late at night for a cheap burrito. The carnitas is tender but the real winner is the shrimp burrito. Super nachos are awesome and well portioned. Why on earth they still advertise a chili verde burrito is beyond me. They don't have, neither does any mexican food place outside of the mission. Not as good as Taqueria... More

This is a great little place to grab some cheap food. The tacos were very tasty, and the location was great.

After walking all the way through Chinatown my family and I entered North Beach. We were all hungry and it was still to early for dinner when I noticed Taqueria El Zorro. No one else was willing to try it but me. Let's just say my carne asada burrito was very large and quite good. I wish I could of... More

This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in SF, but ate there twice this month and it is definitely not as good as it used to be.

The food was yummy (had a grilled chicken taco and shared a plate of super chicken nachos). Nice spice, unique flavor! Ate at the location and it had a good ambiance; they were showing the SF Giants game on TV. The cook was in a jolly mood, which was endearing. We did have a little bit of a language barrier... More

This Mexican restaurant's entrance easy to miss next to the Condor Club at Broadway & Columbus. I recommend the great burritos and taco salads. They start with excellent basic ingredients.I even like their chilled drinking water which comes with a splash of lime. Nice room in back to sit and watch sports on a flat screen and eat. Better than... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
