Amazing range of vegetarian options. The best burritos that we tried during our stay in SF (and we tried a lot!). Huge portion sizes- could easily share if just having a lighter meal. Nice enough setting and friendly, quick service. We had the soyrizo burrito...More

A burrito bigger than Texas made to order. Big enough to share, but suggest you order one each. Very popular place at night so call your order in by phone to save waiting in line. A local favorite.

They have their own salsa here that is delicious. Unlike anything I’ve tried before. It looks heavy / creamy but actually tastes light and packs a lot of unique flavor. They sell it fresh or in a jar.

Excellent burritos and their salsa is also really great. Service is good. Location is not great, dining room was "mostly" clean and most tables are very close to the bathroom. Overall, worth trying.

Best mexican food in the bay area. In a gentrified techie area of town that used to be a bit ghetto.

Very solid Mission Mexican with all the standards, plus a wide range of vegetarian options. Quite casual - order at the counter and take a number to your table. A great alternative to Taqueria around the corner!
