    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

    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 .

    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

    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.

    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.
