    Mole tofu burrito with refried beans: It. Was. Heaven. Their salsa is absolutely delicious, and one $.99 side of guac was huge!

    Inhale chips and salsa. Also, soyrizo is pretty good. Great vegetarian options, giant portions

    Why? Why would anyone in the world love to stand 30 minutes in line with drunk students just to order a burrito which tastes like butt?

    It just keeps getting more expensive but less good :( the only thing I'll get here now is the nachos. The burritos are just not worth it anymore. Too bad

    You know you love their salsa, so might as well order a jar to go. Just make sure to ask for the fresh, not pre-filled. You can thank me later.

    Pricy and hip, Papalote has excellent flavor but it comes at a price. Hand grilled meats moderately make up for its inauthentic vibe, but still way better options at better prices within Sf.
