Super burrito

Been asking around for where to obtain a great Mission burrito, and people have been pointing me towards Taqueria Cancun. Quite impressive I must say. The super burrito, of course, is amazing. The super taco is as well. Love that they offer complementary chips and salsa.

It looks like a hole in the wall, but the food is stellar. Most items are fairly inexpensive, but with big flavors. The super tacos are just that, SUPER tacos. Oh man, I'd eat them again any day! One will not be enough, order 2-4 depending on your appetite. Everything on the menu was spicy to us, but not enough... More

Lovely hole in the wall kinda place, but when you enter you feel you just traveled to Mexico. Vibrant yellow walls and multi colored flags dripping from the ceiling and picnic style seating makes the place somehow very cozy. The service was super fast and they cook everything right there in front of you. I had the cabeza (beef head)... More

You have to try the carnitas! We went at lunch time and it was packed, most of the people seem to be local and that's always a good sign. We payed $24 for two mains, carnitas and enchiladas, and sodas.

I popped in for beef taco but was left uninspired. The food was ok in taste with average presentation. The restaurant could have been kept cleaner and the finished food cleared away more quickly.

I asked for the smallest meal they had and they made a burrito with enough food for three persons. I hate to waste food, because I've been hungry before, so this was so disappointing. My dining companion asked for one cheese enchilada and it was grossly swimming in cheese and the grease from the melted cheese. I also made the... More

My go to spot when La Taqueria is closed. Open late. Unpretentious, down home Mission district taco joint that serves up quality tacos and burritos. The al Pastor burrito is truly awesome. Wonderful flavors. Quick service.

Busy place but they keep up a good pace and get you served and fed quickly. A good selection of beers, very well priced. Nothing beats a day of trekking around SFO and maintaining sustenance with a burrito from this place. The other food I could see other customers eating looked equally as good

I've been going to Taqueria Cancun for years. I lived in SF when I was in college and I've been to many many burrito joints. This one is the best. I now live in Oregon, but every time I'm in SF I plan on hitting this place up for a carne asada burrito. My wife and I were in SF... More

Word of Warning: The second that it gets dark, everyone from Dolores comes here. Expect some major lines on weekends, but partly because this place is a very solid post Day-in-Dolores taco place. For some reason I really enjoy watching my food cook in front of me. Make it is just seeing the raw ingredients become something so deliciously palatable.... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
