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.

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

This taqueria was a fun experience and having a burrito in the Mission is a must for any SF visit. Also tried the quesadilla. Arrived starving, left satisfied!

We had been told that one of the must do experiences while in San Francisco, was to have a burrito in the Mission district. This place looked clean and had good Trip Advisor ratings so we gave it a go. Prompt friendly service and nice extras of corn chips and salsa. Very affordable and enjoyable, but much more food than... More

Long lines, large servings and great guacamole. Plus the odd mariachi band. Good place to start your night on Mission St

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.
