Located almost at 24th and Mission this is one of the better Mexican spots in the Mission area. I ordered the Chili Relleno burrito and absolutely loved it. It’s a total “hole in the wall” sort of place, but the burrito is one of the...More

Feasted on the take-outof three large super burritos and the one quesadilla suiza which ended up feeding five quite comfortably. Really good Mexican food with a focus on fresh preparation, friendly order taker, and relatively fast turn-around. Definitely recommended for take-out as the curb appeal...More

It's decent taqueria food at a reasonable price and they pump it out real fast even when the lines are long.

Great spot for a burrito any time of day, late night, after work, grab one or two before you go home. Better yet Friday on your way home grab an order of nachos and quesadilla for some appetizers with Cocktail hour. Take your time relax...More

Definitely recommend. The super burrito was delicious, as were the carnitas tacos. I would probably get the carnitas filling for the burrito next time, but the chicken was nice too. Lovely staff, quick service.

This place is very popular with both tourists and locals. It is open very late at night, too. That being said, you can get better Mexican food by just crossing 24th Street and going to one of several other restaurants that have better food, are...More
