Lots of choices for vegetarians, big servings, friendly service, high quality food. If you are very hungry and want a luscious treat, order the black bean and friend plantain burrito. The chips are terrific, too. The noise level is high, though, so probably not the best place for a long, intimate conversation.

We went to The Little Chihuahua restaurant in Noe Valley in San Francisco with trepidation. Our adult kids liked it, but several reviews on another website claimed it was poor or so-so. It was quite good! I had the pollo asada enchiladas and husband had the plantain and bean (vegetarian) burrito. I do not like burritoes but I LOVED the... More

We stayed at the Metro Hotel and the Little Chihuahua was across the street. The food was quite good and the service was awesome. I would have enjoyed a mild salsa for the chips since everything was on the hot side but other than that, it was a pleasant dining experience :)

It's possible that I've eaten a lot of bad Mexican restaurants, but this was hands-down some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. My dad and I were driving around lower Haight, trying to find a parking spot to get some food--we were starving (and I was very grumpy!). After finally finding a spot, we happened to ask a... More

Like the other reviews, crowded but I feel it was worth the 9 minute wait to order. Great burritos and extremely large salads. If you are in the area I say do it.

Had the best Mexican I have ever eaten in the Little Chihuahua on divisadero st. Superb food which left us completely stuffed and a great selection of dishes. Watch out for the habanero sauce (very very hot!) Quite an interesting little place - don't expect fine dining and be prepared to share tables. But say yes when asked if you... More

Carafe of Sangria, jumbo burrito and an enchilada plate. Good stuff. Wait in line to order, find a table (we shared with a family on one side and a couple of friends on the other) while munching on some nachos and salsa (complimentary) and then they dropped off the sangria, followed by the food. I'm still stuffed. And happy. Great... More

This place was really crowded, and the line to order was long...basically a glorified Chipotle with more people convinced it is trendy. Not particularly notable.

We stopped in here on a local's recommendation after touring Marin County. This was just what we needed after a mediocre lunch (see my review of Vladimir's in Inverness, CA). The place was packed but the tables cleared quickly (nice to see some people recognize the social contract) and the line did as well. The options were almost too many!... More
