    This humble Castro favorite is known for their al pastor, which is of course the best thing to have on a plate of nachos. They're also not shy with toppings, expect mountains of meat, guac, pico, etc. Read more

    The vegetable burritos are amazing. A steal for the low low price of $5. Also try the green salsa. If you bring a little extra back home, it goes well with scrambled eggs.

    While Castillito is one of the more humble taquerias about town, they're also a Castro favorite. Grab lunch here today and order the al pastor tacos. They aren't shy with the toppings here. It's good. Read more

    Their quesasillas are top notch. The veggie quesadilla with a fruit juice to water down the spicy salsas at the salsa bar is one of the best deals in sf no doubt

    Vegetable (different then the vegetarian) burrito and quesadilla are amazingly delicious! The best veggie burrito I've had in SF thus far and made even better by swapping guacamole for avocado. Yummo!

    Wow, the wet burrito with pastor is astonishingly tasty and happily feeds two people. It's almost too much for the plastic cutlery to handle, I'm considering bringing my own next time!

    Can we just accept the fact that it was the best burrito I’ve tried in my life (and I had more than 50 different ones)?

    They serve food fast here. Cash only. If you can't decide between pastor or carnitas, you can combine both. You're welcome.

    The fish here is delicious. They'll cook up fresh fish if they're out, no questions asked. Burritos, tacos, quesadillas, doesn't matter; it's all great. Their pastor is also bomb.

    Their food is so good!! I love their fajitas especially the prawn. It's big enough to share with two people if you get extra tortillas!

    Their Pastor is outstanding, best I've had in the city. Critically, you should have them add pickled jalapeños to whatever it is you're eating as the two in combination is mind blowing.

    Best burrito so far in SF. Go wet burrito with advocado, cheese and cream. Top it off with some jalapeños and you're good to go for a week .

    Zagat 25. Cost $9. To-die-for burritos & carnitas; digs are a bit grungy, but service is fast, bill is small & they aren't shy with the portions – can always get your order to go.

    Beers at nearby Lucky 13 followed by an al pastor super burrito at Castillito is basically the perfect afternoon with friends.

    San Francisco's secret best burrito. Try the Super Burrito with Al Pastor, and ask for the spinach tortilla.

    Really good breakfast burrito, and burritos in general. Also quesadillas and tacos. Love the salsa verde.

    Carnitas is the best protein here. The steak and pastor are not tasty. Horchata a bit too gritty.

    When you ask for cheese on your tacos they layer melted cheese between the two corn tortillas. It's heavenly.

    The cooks here are nice. Good vegetable burrito on spinach wrap. Ask to add an avocado instead of the guac.

    The wet burrito with carnitas & verde sauce is the best burrito in San Francisco. Get it regular, of course.

    Vegetarian quesadilla is best value. It's basically the super veggie burrito grilled. Yum! Try w/ avocado!

    Get the wet burrito with salsa verde (the red sauce isn't particularly remarkable). With melted cheese & avacado on top, you'll be having one of (if not *the*) best burritos in SF.
