“Inspirational Fish Tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The ingredients were fresh, And plenty of fish in these tacos inspired me to attempt making these at home. The dining area was sufficient, and was a good spot for kids. My stroller fit! Good beer selection.

“perfect burrito”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

A friend from the area took me there claiming it’s the best in SF. It certainly did not disappoint! Exactly as ordered, hot and fresh. The also serve a very nice assortment of salsas and cervezas.

“Made to order for you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We always enjoy eating burritos from this small restaurant, especially for lunch. I like the grilled chicken with black beans and guacamole on either a whole wheat or spinach tortilla. Because I have no will power, the smaller size than the majority of SF burritos means I don't gorge myself!
We love the salsa and have bought some to use at home on grilled chicken!

“Not very impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

I was not impressed with the flavors or selection. I had heard good things but it fell a little flat. It is really small and not much seating. I don't feel the need to go back.

“Best original salsa in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

This SF institution is well worth a visit, you can't make a wrong choice here and the salsa won a spot on top 100 things to eat in SF which as you can imagine with all the incredible eats is quite an honour. Eat
