It's recommended to stay away from the "Tenderloin" area, and although it was closer to it than we hoped, we were satisfied with the food. The service isn't the best (waitress looking at her phone), but if you're hungry, it's good!

I had the super carnitas burrito and my wife had fish tacos. We were both extremely pleased. Cheap meal in no frills establishment. Roasted pork was delicious in the burrito. Free cheaps and salsa and all under $30. Worth a stop.

I walked by this place and grabbed a menu. When I saw that they served chile rellenos, I went in. Waitress isn't the friendliest person ( I'm surprised since buddying up to the customer can only mean a bigger tip ) but when I asked her to substitute something on the menu, she obliged without hesitation. Chile Rellenos ( which... More

Great Burritos and fast. I appreciated the homemade goodness of everything (even the chips!). I could smell the roasts and pots simmering at lunchtime. I went back a couple times. Gallivanting about the globe, one misses good burritos from home. This was a find!

It seems a typical centro american restaurant. I ate pupusas, a salvadorian dish. The prices are cheap. It's a different taste in San Francisco.

I had a black bean and cheese papusa and it was awesome. Chicken burrito was average, but I saw other plates come out of the kitchen (looked like carnitas or some type of pork dish) and it looked great. Good cheap eats if you are in the area.

Stumbled on this place in the TenderNob - I was craving a simple burrito and we decided to pop in. First thing to know - CASH ONLY The atmosphere, well, there isn't much of one - formica tables, a beaten up TV hanging on the wall and a few bar seats, this place totally reminds me of the family run,...

After trying this place for the first time (I found it on an App on my Iphone), my husband and I changed all our dinner plans and reservation for the following days in order to be able to get back to this place and have another burrito before going back to Italy. Burrito were simply huge and amazing. The ambience... More

Food was great! I had the Super Burrito with chicken and my wife had the Pupusas. Both were great and the portions are very generous. Don't expect table clothes and great service, but it's an excellent choice for those on a budget or just looking for something local.
