    Their super fish burrito *may* be my most favorite burrito in San Francisco. Get it super (guacamole, sour cream, cheese), black beans, no rice, dorado (extra time on the grill) style.

    Must get the fish burrito. It's loaded up with light, flaky, tender white fish and all of the usually burrito fixings. Great flavors, cheap price, and very filling.

    They do the best homemade agua fresca. Ask for the daily flavors.

    Overpriced for a carne asada burrito. Skip the dry Spanish rice.

    One of the lesser frequented Mexican joints, nonetheless great food + lots of seating

    Amaaaaizing food. The Burritos are excellent. So are the Enchiladas and Quesadillas. The complimentary guacamole is fantastic too. Order everything.

    Summer in SF sometimes means having a nice hot bowl of Pozole! 😋

    Some of the best carnitas in the city, definitely get something with pork and you won't be disappointed! Though a little off the beaten path, their burritos are worth it...

    I don't know how this place is so popular, burritos are awful and unauthentic.

    Will return to try the super fish burrito. The regular fish burrito was not that flavorful. I'll have to try the super fish burrito in all fairness. I'll update the tip.

    Perhaps the best Mexican food in the City. House made chips make for great nachos and the burritos can't be beat.

    Good tightly rolled burrito - gonna pass on the Carnitas next time - a bit too pig lard-y for my taste but could see other people really liking it!

    Really great burritos. A little smaller than your typical Mission burrito.

    It's a good place if you want to sit down - for once - while eating Mexican food.

    Burritos made this skinny for that high of a price should only be acceptable at La Taqueria

    ok - the fish burrito is a must have and a nice change. friendly staff. chips included and the place looks great (inside and outside). $7.50 for a delicious burrito incl tax is a good deal.

    Despite the hype, fish tacos were soggy and mediocre. The huge quesadilla and the mole special far Better choices

    Their carne asada super burrito has different cheese (cotija?) and ratios than most other mission burritos. Worth making the trek for.

    The vegetarian burritos, quesadillas and nachos have legitimate veggies in them. Good stuff.

    The most delicious quesadilla crisp to perfection. Hands down the best I've ever had in Mission. Portions are excellent. I eat it for lunch+dinner!

    Fish burrito was amazing, as we're the chips and generous side of guacamole.
