We arrived at 9:17 (they close at 10:30) were refused service. Well, to be clear .. we were offered shots or bottled beer. We were told the kitchen was closed. Based on the other reviews we speared ourselves the bad food. Very poor service.

Discovered this place by accident, though it is just around the corner from where we live. Authentic Mexican food, though I am not an expert, good location, close to AT&T and reasonably priced. Kind and efficient service.

The highlight of the meal was being able to eat chips and salsa. Eating GF is a challenge, so I appreciate that they have a lot of choices. The food was good, but nothing great. Service was average. I would go back, but not raving about it.

Am temporarily in San Francisco for business and live near this restaurant. Despite how cool and fun it looks it has been a huge disappointment in service. Twice when I've been in for a drink and food I've waited 20 minutes before even getting water and an acknowledgment for a waiter. Another time I sat at the bar and eventually... More

First time here ... most likely last time, as well ... We came here before a Giants game for drinks and snacks. Wasn't crowded, and ambience is fine. Ordered bar comidas of queso fundido and quesadilla de hongos. But first, let's get to the drinks. We all ordered margaritas, on the rocks, salted except for mine (there were four of... More

A great choice in SF and close to the ballpark. Food was great with an interestingness menu. The decor is nice with open and friendly environment. Great for large groups and very accommodating staff.

We had a couple of margaritas and shared the carnitas plate along with chips and salsa. Still surprised when you have to pay for chips and salsa but it was a decent amount of chips and 3 different salsas, which were tasty. The carnitas plate is easily enough to share. It does come with tortillas but that's it. No rice... More

Recently had lunch with my son and we paid close to 50 bucks with plain water as drinks. It's very convenient that waiters serve glasses of water and refill it constantly. Chubby stainless pitchers keep water very fresh. We tried Chicken soup with corn in the cob, House Special Torta with fries 🍟!!!, and two small tacos. Nothing spicy 😢... More

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
