Very Good

We ventured to Taqueria el Sol from Hotel Monaco, about 1 block away. The food was very fresh tasting, reasonably priced, and good portions. The "regular" burrito is a sufficent size for the average eater.

came here for a bite after flying in the east coast because it was right across the street from my hotel. Small, hole int he wall place, but I was amply rewarded. Generous serving. I had the prawn and carne asana plate and it was delicious and more Thani could eat for $15. Good food, great value and definitely authentic... More

I live in this neighborhood and this is our go to burrito spot. I did grow up here, and I did live in the mission, and I can say that the California style burrito is solid at Taqueria El Sol. They have great carnitas and pastor, but my favorite is definitely their saucy braised meats. It just makes for a... More

Visited with family for a quick bite. Language barrier quickly overcome by pointing at the ingredients we wanted for our tacos. Chicken really tasty and succulent very reasonably priced and well presented would go back very quickly

I stopped in for a quick bite to eat at lunch. I ordered a carne asada taco and carnitas taco. Both were delicious!! The ingredients were fresh and I got to choose the toppings. Skip the chips...the salsa was great but the chips came out of a bag.

This mom & pop's place is small and cozy, it is by no ways fancy but has amazingly tasty Mexican food for the lovers of the genre. People are in and out of the place all day long and there is always someone in line. The Super Burrito is HUGE, so make sure you have a big appetite if you... More

We arrived in San Francisco in the late night and found this little place just in front of the Hotel. Quality is excellent for a very low price; everything served quickly but with care. Super Quesadilla is really...super!

This was right beside out hotel, and we went in for a quick bite one evening between drinks. Didn't expect much but the foot blew us away. For the price, I can't think of any better place we ate in SF. Prawns are cooked on the spot and made with care and attention, as seems the case with the rest... More
