Went here for lunch on a recommendation by our son who is a student at Stanford. Food was great and the mission district was interesting to walk around

It came highly recommend and it didnt disappoint. We shared a super burrito and some chips with salsa and guacamole between two, which was more than enough. The beef was magical. Really reasonable and friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Best "Super Burrito" I've ever had. If you're a tourist, it's not in the most convenient part of town but it's definitely worth a trip. I'd recommend it for lunch. Very affordable and very good. I believe I read a sign in the restaurant saying they were closed on Tuesdays so you may want to check before making the trip.

I only come here for late night. Not my favorite but always open and perfect for late night bites. No very expensive and decent menu.

This a very casual place but the food is delicious. We ordered our food to go but could just as easily have eaten inside. Service was quick and friendly and nothing disappointed. Everything was messy - just as it should be. We enjoyed the food so much that we ate here twice and will return whenever we're in the area.

Outstanding food for the price. We ordered several items off board, and everything was very tasty. The burritos are the highlight.

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.

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.
