    Simple put, El Farolito makes the best damn burrito in the entire world as far as I'm concerned. That crumbled chorizo was seriously unbelievable. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Like chunky, thick cuts of meat over your nachos? Then this is the place to go. The sliced avocado and jalapeños are also plentiful. Prepare to gorge on the toppings and the thicker than normal chips. Read more

    Farolito is open late at night, which is the best time to eat their delectable carne asada super burrito. This burrito does not discriminate, especially when you are imbibing. Read more

    El Farolito stays steamy until 1:30 a.m. in the Excelsior, 2 a.m. on 24th Street, and 3:30 a.m. by 24th and Mission BART, for those nights when only a burrito will save you from the approaching dawn. Read more

    The quesadilla super suiza was so good! Get the full experience by dining in or decide to take it to go. Either way your food is going to be authentic and delicious. Hit up the salsa bar too!

    The carnitas taco is a great place to start here, but this is a great place to break out into some of the more adventures options. Round out your taco trio with something you've always wanted to try. Read more

    Carne asada Super Burrito, best I've ever had. Crispy carne asada tacos (- sour cream), amazing. Endless green salsa, yes. Urine smell at the front door, ehh I could do without. Cheap! Delicious! Done

    Definitely try their Super Burrito with carne asada. With each bite you take you're able to taste the char and spices in the meat. Probably one of the best spots for genuine Mexican food.

    Al pastor is the way to go (so good!). Also, ask them to grill your tortilla slightly longer for extra crispy deliciousness. Chips are mediocre, but the salsas are delicious, especially the green one.

    I grew up in Arizona and this is one of the best burritos I've ever had. Carne Asada super burrito. Warning though this place gets packed and tough to get a table.

    The burrito had some ingredient-distribution issues, but holy hell were the good bites good. Got the al pastor super burrito. It's a good choice. Chips were really stale but salsa/sauce was fantastic.

    Super carne asada burrito, quesdilla super suiza, and get a side of the awesome el pastor meat! You can eat it with the free tortilla chips, green sauce and salsa.

    Wow, this is definitely the best Mexican place I've been in my life so far. If there are 2 of you looking for some food - take this insanely good quesadilla para dos <3

    Decent late night burritos, for northern California. Seriously, growing up in San Diego, almost any hole in the wall there beats the most ridiculously touted here. I'm evil for saying so? Fine.

    This is the best spot for a "traditional" burrito in SF, hands-down. 7x7 lists their Carne Asada burrito as a must-eat of 2012, but you really can't go wrong.

    The Super Suiza Para Dos is amazing drunk food; A quesadilla out of two XL tortillas, meat, cheese, sour cream, steak, avocado, salsa -- really big enough for three people!

    Got the carne asada super burrito as suggested, and it was amazing. It's huge, too - probably could have split one. And the green salsa rocks!

    No scene here. Just the real deal. Brooklyn pizzeria style seating (sorry but that's my best comparison). Best burrito I've ever had.

    Have had a burrito here twice and highly recommend this as a destination for other out of towners like me. The setting isn't much to look at but the line is akways out the door.

    A visit to the Mission is not complete until I’ve gotten a burrito or a quesadilla with a side of chips from my favorite burrito joint. Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent prices. Read more

    The burritos are good, but the carne asada quesadilla super suiza is the real star.

    Carne asada super burrito 🌯 and the salsa bar, albeit simple and unassuming, is utter happiness

    The best Bay Area carne asada burrito in my opinion. Rated number 1 by buzzfeed for must try burritos across the nation.

    Food blogger Stephanie Stiavetti says, “Their food is incredible and... they’re open until almost 3 a.m.! Fresh avocados and a ton of shredded cheese on every super burrito? Yes, please.”

    There's usually a long line, but it's worth waiting. Part of the holy trinity of taquerias, along with Cancun and La Taqueria.

    Be prepared to take out the half of the burrito you couldn't finish. If you're not a hungry monster at the moment, you can consider sharing one with a friend.

    Alas the super tacos are no more... but $1 gets you nearly a whole avocado on your regular tacos!

    The cabeza/lengua tacos I had were actually way better than the carne asada burrito, though that was good too. Those tacos were so good, I might cry.

    The Carne Asada super burrito is a delicious mess. It is also quite an undertaking. I'm currently sitting here, having finished my burrito, and I...can't....move.

    Open until 4 am, their super suiza makes amazing post- a long night drinking food. Try the "para dos" for a massive meal to share.

    The Quesadilla Suiza will change your life. Should be on 7x7's Top 100 list. Worth the drive from anywhere in San Francisco.

    Peel the foil horizontally only as you go to minimize spillage of this food gold, AND to maximize the warmth of your burrito.

    Late night burritos etc, so delicious! Especially on your way home from the bar. If it's before 2am order a Pacifico to drink while you wait!

    Doesn't really matter what you get. Can't go wrong here. The carne asada burritos and tacos are bomb. Grab a MexiCoke or Jarritos with your food.

    Delish! Huge burrito! One might need a nap afterwards. Full belly. Steps from Bart so great for grab-n-go if needed.
