I had a super burrito here once lunchtime, which was very tasty! It does get busy if you don't get here early. Plenty of meat choices and some very tasty sauce to go over it. Also tacos, enchiladas and other choices on the menu.
Prices are very cheap for city food, will be going back again!

We were looking for Mexican food while walking through Haight Street and found El Faro. The burritos were great and it was a nice place to get lunch.

We visited for lunch with a few friends that loved this place many years ago. We were glad we did. You stand in line and order off a menu on the wall. My husband and I ordered the Happy Burrito which included meat, meat cheese, lettuce and the usual fixings. My husband had an Acapulco Burrito which included shell fish. Both were absolutely excellent. There are tables inside the restaurant were you can enjoy your food. Our friends stated that the restaurant hadn't changed and was as good as it was many years ago when they worked in the City. I would definitely visit again.
