Stopped in on a Wednesday evening, despite the small space we were seated quickly. Two of us ordered tacos and two ordered burritos. The burritos were fantastic, one of the best I've had. The tacos were very good as well but lacked substance in places, the shrimp taco had only two shrimp. Service was courteous but spotty. Overall our bill... More

Recently visited with 7 friends - a party of this size is not recommended as the space is quite small. The food is delicious. While there were a few mistakes with the bill and the margaritas were quite sweet, the nice staff more than made up for it.

Yes we've been to Papito's before, this is likely my 6th or so time to eat there. But it has been awhile since I reviewed them. So here we go. Stopped there yesterday for a mid afternoon late lunch. It's city street parking, but we got lucky just a few houses away from the restaurant. There was plenty of seating... More

was in the city for business and a friend introduced me to the great food and drinks at Papito. Killer food including great guac and drinks. Combine that with fair prices and I'll definitely be returning.

We tried to get a table for an hour, finally ordered it to go. Food was just ok...I love spicy food but the salsa verde they put on my chicken verde burrito was too spicy to enjoy. That's really rare for me. I won't be going back.

Only in SF can you find a Mexican restaurant owned/operated by Frenchmen. Excellent ceviche and fish tacos. I had the grilled trout, which was excellent, but seemed more like snapper than trout. It was good, so I didn't much care. A very big portion, which left us enough for dinner that night.

If you live in the Potrero Hill neighborhood, this is a place you would like to walk to for an easy meal. As other reviewers have said, the downside here is that it is extremely small - @ 8 counter seats and 6 tables for 2 (less if joined for 4 people) and a few tables outside. Once we were... More

The only downside to a dinner here was that with a line outside the door we felt guilty to linger after finishing our meal. This is definitely worth a stop if in the neighborhood. It's a small and cozy joint, perfect for meeting a couple of friends. Perhaps too casual for a first date and the place isn't set up... More
