We were looking out for an nice evening after work and shopping in SF downtown and we were lucky to get a table for 6 at 7 pm. It was packed but we got a table. the service was nice and helpful and helping to find the right things. We had several different dishes and the ceviche was very nice.... read more

This place is great. You walk in, give your order to the ladies cooking and take a number and pay at the cash register. They deliver the food to you by your number. The food is cooked fresh and it's better that Chipotles. I called it Chipotle's on steroids. They also have a bar offering beer, wine and of course... More

This restaurant sits right in the bustling area of the San Francisco downtown right by SFMOMA. Easy to overlook because it's kind of tucked away. The restaurant has amazing Mexican food and the prices are reasonable. The bar also had a great selection of tequilas and other drinks. It's a great place for casual dining. I'd recommend the chicken and... More

We visited last week, had a wonderful evening with wine and food. The staff were excellent and the restrauant was buzzing with people. Highly recommended even on a week night. Easy to book a table online. Must visit! ! Enchaladas were amazing! +

Won't get more bang for your buck anywhere else in downtown SF or SOMA. Spicy, but delicious. They do breakfast and happy hour too.

I had high hopes for this restaurant. I ordered a simple combination plate with 1 cheese tamale and 1 vegetable enchilada. What did I get? 1 vegetable taco and 1 vegetable enchilada (problem #1). The waitress was understanding about the mixup and offered to correct the order. I was soon brought out 1 vegetable enchilada. The cheese tamale never made... More

It's loud and crowded, there's even a line for the men's room, but the food here is fantastic. The chips are a great start and the food is the best Mexican I have had in a long time.

Prepare to stand in line at this very popular Mexican restaurant. I ordered a two item combination (tamale and enchilada) and it was delicious.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
