This place is so small and unassuming but the food will knock your socks off! The black bean and plantain burrito is one of the best things I have ever eaten.

The Lower Haight branch of the Little Chihuahua was a real find. Great food (I had a terrific burrito) served in good sized portions very quickly and efficiently. You arrive, place your order at the front counter and then take your seat. Our food arrived within just a few minutes. I was also able to order a horchata which tasted... More

Recommended by our landlord- the food was excellent- nice flavours, though the salsa was indeed too hot. We had the chicken burritos and the taco salad, both of which were huge, and filling. It was great to get roasted chips instead of fried ones, so that we didn't have to watch our waistlines. Would request them to improve the cleanliness... More

Good food..Very well priced. Quesadillas were Awesome just like the Chips and spicy Guac ! Service was quick but not very attentive, no one cleaned our table :( Another thing which can be improved is the lack of space. Will visit again !

The brunches at Little Chihuahua are very good, and that's the meal I would recommend. There are many other outstanding Mexican restaurants in San Francisco, and several within a couple of blocks of this one. But for brunch on the weekend, this is a good one. You'll order at the counter, get a number, and find a table if you... More

I am on a mission to save the endangered plantain burrito. I did not know they even existed until I went some friends took me to Cu Co's last year. My five star review of that place did not save it from going extinct - but hopefully TLC will fare better. I Alta Vista'd "plantain burritos" and the search results... More

The food here is okay but is not the best Mexican food I've had. Some of it was way spicier than it's meant to be and this kind of killed some of the flavour - it was just so hot. This was true of everything our party ordered. However, the service was quick and friendly, and they were happy to... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
