I grew up on burritos from the Mission so I was a bit skeptical about this place. I now don't have to travel to the Mission to get a burrito. This place is consistent and the food is good. There are plenty of menu options.

I had about an hour to kill before picking up my cousin at the airport and found this on Trip Advisor. THANK GOODNESS. These tacos were phenomenal - this Texas girl has been stuck not-in-Texas for so many years I've given up on legit taqueria tacos.

I had the fish and the vegetarian tacos, and they aren't kidding when they say the hot sauce has kick. Made my nose run, but in a really delicious way! If you aren't so sure about hot sauce don't skip it - just ask for a little shredded cheese on the taco.

The vegetarian was great, too, including the guacamole. They could probably go a little easier on the sour cream if you are getting veggie to count calories (but if you're doing that, why go to a taqueria in the first place?!).

While the fillings were good, the tortillas themselves were what made my soul sing. Hand made, hand pressed corn tortillas... **sigh** How I miss those.

The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the chips - out of a bag, nothing special, but the rest of the meal more than made up for it.

Definitely worth swinging by if you're anywhere near SFO - and parking is tight, but there is an empty strip center across the street that made an easy place to park for a short time. Might be somewhere they tow, but maybe I just got lucky. :)

Absolutely LOVE this place. Best food and homemade salsas! Everything is good. They make a beautiful shrimp cocktail. The combo plates are huge, so bring a big appetite. My favorite by far are the fish and shrimp tacos.

In a funny part of town. Been here before when getting gas to return the car to SFO. Burrito is great but wasn't crazy for the chicken enchiladas however very friendly people and good salsa. Good time

Sometimes the "hole in the wall" has the best food. This would be the case for this place. Stopped by on a Sunday with a friend who is a regular. May be small and cramped but the food is worth it. Large portions, inexpensive prices, and had the taste of home made cooking.
