Amazing Mexican!

One of the best Mexican places we've been to! Excellent enchiladas, dishes were huge! And you get free tortilla chips which is really nice. Excellent service and excellent food, highly recommended!

Had the chicken burrito with black beans - was good. Have a salsa / condiments bar. This is NOT a full service restaurant - you order and pay up front, get a number, and then they bring you your food. This is not a problem - just know it is not a sit and hang out place. The style does... More

The flavors are lovely here.... deep, rich textures of Mexican spices with super ingredients... tastefully delightful! Service was good, room was crowded but our server was attentive and food served fairly quickly.

The restaurant was crowded and we had to wait half an hour for a table. As we couldn’t find a local bar we returned to the restaurant for a drink and sat outside until our table was ready. Once seated we needed torches (literally!) to read the interesting and varied menu because it was so dark inside. When it arrived... More

I guess I'll review this place for the New-Yorkers in town just like myself. You order your food entering the restaurant and then get your drinks at the bar and help yourself with several types of salsa. Well let's start with the marguerites which can pack a punch and are maybe just a little bit in the small size but... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and seeing that this restaurant was in our Lonely Planet guide I was excited to try it as I love Mexican/Tex Mex food. I was prepared for what others had said about it being noisy so my husband and tried to get a table on Saturday night only to be told it was an... More

Convenient to our hotel, noisy, crowded tables, dimly lit, bustling and interesting decor.  Menu very different, adventurous and interesting dishes compared to the Aussie mexican restaurants. Chips and dips and guacamole reccomended to start. My partner enjoyed tostaditas carnitas very much I disliked my Moloney (?) selection - tough exterior and not to my taste. Wine by the glass was...

Waitress was really helpful and knowledgable my wife and I both tried new things due to her recommendations. Great atmosphere and choice price isn't too bad either. Try the smokey margarita! Food is absolutely amazing! Have the steak and burrito combo. Ohh my gosh!

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.
