I've been here twice, and each time it was a friend or family member living in San Francisco who brought me there, saying it was the best Mexican food. They're right! The prices are perfectly fine, the line moves along, and the burritos are fantastic. So stuffed full of flavorful freshness! Vegetarian friendly and a nice colorful interior. I wish... More

Go for the super burrito! We were recommended this place by a local, and it was clear that it's popular amongst locals judging by how busy it was! The burritos are cheap and really tasty, and I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in/visiting this neighborhood!

Found this place while on a walk. Fantastic salsa and burritos. My wife also had a taco and it was great. A little dirty but we arrived right after lunch hour. Not an evening/fine dining type of place but will fill you up for lunch at a reasonable price.

I love this restaurnat. From the fresh OJ, great chips, crazy green salsa, and then the burritos. OMG...The vegetarian burrito is out of this world. Never had anything like it anywhere else. My choice: Super Veggie burrito, mix of re-fried and black beans, light rice. Wow...

You can do any better than this. The carne asada super burrito is a perfect quick lunch. The "man sized" portion is more than enough for one and is served with chips and a spice avocado sala and a traditiona salsa. Both excellent.

Burritos are wonderful and inexpensive, atmosphere is great, assisted by a mariachi player, what's not to like. (Well possibly the restrooms). Still worth the visit though.

Taqueria Cancun is a Mission standby, serving amazing tacos and burritos late into the night. You really can't do any better for $3-6. Their burritos have won Best of the Bay over 10 years in a row. I particularly like the burrito mojado for two people to share.

This is my local go to taqueria in the Mission. Cheap prices and large portions are the way to go. Alot of the taquerias in the Mission are stuffing burritos with rice and beans and skimping on other ingredients, like Meat!! Cancun doesn't do that, they make huge, tasty burritos that will leave you stuffed. It can get busy at... More

I asked a friend who used to live in San Francisco for his choices of best burrito in town. I love burritos and was going to make a pilgrimage to The Mission district to try an "authentic" one. Tops on his list was Taqueria Cancun. I jumped on the bus and was greeted by a pretty long line. Bear in... More

First of all, how sad that some might find this area "scuzzy" or "sketchy". Get out and live a little! The area is in a lively part of town and we have come back twice while on vacation - to enjoy the atmosphere. This place is very much like the "taco houses" in San Antonio, TX. Authentic, tasty and cheap.... More
