I eat at this place regularly. People are gruff but the food is good. I usually get the super burrito. Nothing totally amazing, but always consistently good.

Kids love this place. The food is typical Mexican fare and the value is apparent and it is reserved for the food. The restaurant is small, the place is usually busy, the crew working behind the counter is authentic and they keep the line moving. Whole teams of soccer players, families with strollers in tow, couples heading out for a... More

This place would definitely fit the category of fast mexican food, similar to (but predates) Chipotle. The ingredients are all in chafing dishes behind glass. You place your order, pay, and a few minutes later you've got a nice hot burrito to eat. It's not the most authentic Mexican food, more like a healthy version of Mexican food, so if... More

Summary based on many visits over many years: --limited menu, but great burritos and tacos --inexpensive. Accepts credit cards --can be a wait --accepts phone in orders --street parking can be challenging My go-to burrito place.

Gordo's is a family favorite. Wait, let me rephrase that. When anyone I know wants a burrito, they go to Gordo's. Good ingredients, well-made. No pretense--just good food, reasonably priced.

Pretty yummy burritos, not crazy weird or super big either, just a standard Mission District style burrito like you would find in San Francisco.

I have been to many burrito joints in the Bay Area and Gordo has been number 1. It's easy to order and their food is absolutely delicious. It's the first place I go to eat when I come back home. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody!

If you want a Mexican "fix" this is the place to go. The chili verde super burrito is my favorite. You stand in line to place your order and there is limited seating in the restaurant. Most people get their orders to go.

I've been going here a long time. Maybe not be the "traditonal" Mexican flavor that most individuals like, but I don't care for spicy foods. That's why I enjoy eating their burritos, tacos and quesadillas where I will not burn my mouth and have to drink tons of water. But feel free to add their spicy green sauce if you... More

I always enjoy the Chicken Burritos. Generous portions and a good value for the price. Great for families. Many choices for kids to choose from - tacos are yummy !!
