AMAZING BURRITOS! – For years, my husband (former San Fran resident) RAVED about San Fran burritos and on a recent trip from NYC, I finally got to taste why. The food here is amazing, fresh and delicious. The burritos are tasty, customized to your desires and wrapped tightly enough to be eaten while walking (though we ate in). Great juice bar. Great service. Good ambiance. Awesomely inexpensive. I can't wait to go back!

Best mexican in the mission – Long lines but totally worth it. Everything is good here. Burritos a must, fish tacos are my favorite here as well as the chicken tacos. Service is fast and efficient so the long line goes fast.

worst customer service at the embarcadero location! – I would avoid this place by all means. They have awful customer service. They have been rude every single time i've been there. there's also definitely better mexican food in the city that i would rather go. i recommend going somewhere where your patronage is appreciated!

Love, love, love it here! – I love this place. When I first moved here I heard about it and had to go. I missed my L.A. mexican eats! Everything is pretty good here, and you get your order pretty quickly. The only problem is the line. This place is usually crowded especially on weekends.

I love their carnitas, and their nachos, with or without meat!

A definite must try. They also have another location at the Ferry Building.

Always fresh and tasty mexican food! – If you're looking for a quick bite, but refuse to go to cheap fast-food joints, this is an excellent choice. I think it's one of the best mexican places in the city (for fast-food); they also have a restaurant in San Mateo. The food is always fresh, good quality and very tasty. They also have an excellent juice bar (10 times better then one of those over-rated juice places).

Best fast Mexican food in the city – There's no shortage of taquerias in the Mission, so when people claim this is the best Mexican in the city, it really says something. And, it's true. There's always huge lines. Don't let that deter you. The owner of this place just absolutely gets it. There's always a ton of staff ready to make your burrito, or any other Mexican standard. The prices are ridiculously reasonable, especially given the quality of the food. The chicken tends to be a little dry, but the carne, bbq pork (al pastor), carnitas, and chile verde pork are just awesome. The fish tacos are unbelievable and are not fried. Here's the cherry on top: even with the huge crowds, the place always has places to sit. As soon as someone leaves, the staff has the table cleaned in under a minute.

best burrito in the WORLD. – Seriously. Imagine the perfectly-warmed tortilla, smothered in moist black beans that are sprinkled with finely shredded iceberg lettuce, dolloped with smooth silky sour cream and the most-perfect-cheddar ever. Topped off with fresh roma tomatoes and zesty, tangy salsa.. rolled up into a delicious burrito.. and served. Get it with the spritzy apple soda, you're set for life people.

A burrito factory line – I eat here at least once a week. It's an assembly line that Henry Ford would approve of. Everything is good. The burritos are a staple, but when I have time (and the appetite) the combo plates are overflowing with food and value.
