Service at first rather sparse, eventually once we had ordered the server warmed up. Very generous portions. Good flavours, but beef rather chewy. Good value for money just a little rough around the edges.

I was walking down 16th toward a well known taqueria when I walked by this place. Despite the scaffolding outside, which obscured the sign and a lot of the sunlight, it seemed welcoming and genuine. had the Cochinita Pibil (slow cooked pork shoulder) for lunch....Served with corn tortillas. Delicious! The price was fair. The service was friendly and helpful. The beer was cold. I left happy. 😀More

The food was great. My Poc-chuk was close to authentic. The service was little slow and confused. But, we got what we wanted at the end.

The Mission has many hip and trendy eateries, but most of them are only known for their “see-and to-be-seen” party atmosphere and not for their cuisines. Poc-Chuc is an exception! This cool Spanish Mayan restaurant serves great, awe-inspiring foods! And yes, the in-the-know crowd is...lining up to get in! (Warning: it’s very popular, so reservations are almost always required for any night of the week!) Inside, the red and gold décor is warm and welcoming. Tables and chairs crowded the long, narrow interior. In a corner, a handsome musician plays romantic Spanish tunes on his acoustic guitar. The food is unpretentious, made with fresh ingredients, looks and tastes like a home-cooked meal, just delicious! We loved the Polo Pibil (chicken thigh marinated in annatto spices then slow braised, served with rice and black bean puree, $12) and the signature dish Poc Chuc (grilled citrus marinated pork, served with rice, grilled tomatoes and red onions, $14). We were also delighted with the Trio Tostada (a combo of three crispy corn tortillas stuffed with rice, avocado, black bean puree, tomato and onion sauce, with three different meat toppings: shredded turkey, ground pork, and shrimp, $12). Exceptionally nice and attentive servers: the restaurant was packed and there was about a dozen people waiting to get in, but we never felt rushed or “forgotten” by the servers. Tip: Must try the non-alcoholic fresh fruit drink Tamarindo (made with tamarind juice, $2.50). It’s heavenly!More
