Counter style ordering and ample portions, the menu has everything you could ask for and everything looks so darn tasty. Staff is super friendly and patient even with the line out the door. Recommend!

You could easily walk past this place on the street without thinking much of it but when you get in it's crammed with locals from the Mission District. They serve huge, but very reasonable, burritos, tacos, quesadillas and other Mexican classics. Authentic Mexican food done...properly, none of the chain restaurant blandness you get elsewhere. A good sized menu, giant portions and friendly staff. I cannot recommend this place enough if you like good Mexican food and/or you want to get a look at local life.More

After visiting a more “famous” taqueria in the same street, this one exceeded expectations. The food was as authentic as you’d get outside of Mexico. The service was great, and food was well priced. Serving size was big you can definitely share.

Stopped by in the late afternoon while exploring the area....busy, but quick; obviously a neighborhood favorite! Good, homemade food, cafeteria style, generous portions. I had fully loaded tacos which were huge....next time I’ll get the traditional, simpler tacos. The burritos I saw looked good, and...BIG. Beer available...👍More

It’s a small but cozy place that packs a delicious punch! If you want authentic Mexican, this is the place. I had the tacos and they were fresh and crispy! Will definitely be going back for another round!!

I swung by here two weeks ago and was delighted with the overstuffed tacos I got: one shrimp and one veg (without onion or rice). Served with tortilla chips. For less than a tenner, I left stuffed. They aren’t the best tacos I’ve ever had...but definitely delicious: fat, juicy shrimp (and a couple of them to boot) and lots of veg toppings on both. Also love that the establishment composts and recycles.More

Honestly their carnitas is to die for. “Burrito especial con carnitas por favor.” Super casual mission style burrito place, no frills, traditional tastes, not over seasoned. When someone is visiting and they ask for my burrito place hands down this is it. (El Farolito and...Taqueria are great don’t get me wrong, but just too busy now)More

Handy location, friendly staff, and good food. My super burrito was tasty, with all the right ingredients, if only warm, not hot.

Super busy, but easy to find a table in this small restaurant. Lots of people working and the line moves fast. Tons of food and ALL of it was great.
