This place is the spot in San Mateo to get a delicious sf mission style burrito. Always crowded food super fresh and tasty and plenty of it. Great salsa too.

I had the avocado chicken salad. It was delicious. The chicken was grilled perfectly and veggies were fresh. This place is always busy and food is freshly grilled and made in front of you to order.
