    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

    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

    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 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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
