Awesome spot that is seemingly both well known and hidden at the same time. Went there on a rainy Sunday and it was busy. Tacos and burritos are great and the shrimp was particularly excellent and flavorful. The salsas all have a good kick and the salsa verde is awesome! Can't wait to go back.

Great little spot near the airport. We had a shrimp taco, a carnitas taco, a steak taco and a steak burrito. Everything was excellent. My husband especially enjoyed how crispy the meats were cooked, and we loved trying the fresh salsas at the salsa bar.

The reviews were right, this place has amazing food, the guy behind the counter was really friendly and made us feel comfortable, the plates were loaded with food and the beers were cold.

Were in the neighborhood, decided to search for a Mexican cuisine. Found one on Yelp with a lot of positive reviews. Decided to give it a try. Walked 0.8 mile to it freezing , but it was worth it! We had fajitas with pollo (chicken) and camarones al mojo de ajo. Both were amazing! Highly recommend this place!

Absolutely the best seafood burrito in the Bay Area. The ceviche is fresh made daily throughout the whole day. It looks like a hole in the wall but you should absolutely get there. Don't come during any of the high traffic times like lunch and dinner. You will have a shorter wait time during off times. It is an absolute... More

I ordered a burrito made with carnitas, beans, rice, and cilantro. It was HUGE and the best burrito I have EVER eaten. I was... More

as described this place is situated in an industrial area. Place was packed. Although not sure of what fish it was the fish tacos are not bad. The chicken and steak tacos are a little oily but very favourful with cilantro on top. Can purchase a serve of Avocados separately for 95c. Seems a popular after work joint not just... More

My wife and I found this place near one of the long term SFO parking facilities. We ordered their garlic shrimp lunch plate and a carnitas burrito. When the food came, the two of us could only finish the delicious garlic shrimp dish (8 large prawns) sauteed with mushrooms and onions. The lunch came with rice, refried beans and salad.... More

This place is great! Authentic Mexican food! Burritos are often requested when we have out of town visitors. Reasonable prices! We prefer takeout however. Not too conducive to dining in. Parking can be tough too.
