This place never fails to put a smile on my face. The super carne asada burrito is like an old, good friend. Always around when need them. Ask to get it 'dorado' style. After it's made, they grill it golden on all sides. It makes this tube of deliciousness crispy and hot! Use that green salsa for every bite (you... More

Great value and massive portion sizes at this down-to-earth Mexican cafe on Mission St. You go to the counter and order 'n pay, take your food to a table, and have a great time! What more could you ask for? And you won't spend more than $10 a person as my steak burrito was only $8. Also try the tacos.... More

Being from Arizona and spending a lot of time in San Diego we take our burritos seriously. Dive atmosphere - Check Cash Only - Check Crowded with Interesting People - Check Great Value - Check Incredible Food - Check Carne Asada was outstanding and we had 2 regular and one Super Burrito. Get the Super. Salsa is rock solid.

A friend who used to live in San Francisco recommended this place, so I made it there on my way back from Castro. Tacos were delicious and service was fast. Can't wait to have another one!

This is a super place to grab some quick and very good Mexican food. You wait in line and sit on benches, but it's a wonderful stop.

My local friend took me here, saying it was his favorite burrito place in the mission. After sampling a few other places, I have to agree. Size and price are average for the area, but the taste is fantastic. Everyone has their favorite place to go, so expect a lot of in fighting. My advice, get out there and try... More

Strolled Mission asking locals for best burrito shop. Definitely lots of opinions on this. Seems as if Mission District has lots of favorites, but I went with this option and it was soooooo freaking good. Got the chicken burrito, loved it! Can't go wrong here.

Their menu isn't the biggest, but what they offer was good! The atmosphere is great and portions relative to price are good too. You go in, order at the counter, you get a ticket, then your number gets called out. Not a classy place for a date, but a great place to get to have a conversation with someone. I... More

We visited for a quick bite to eat. We had tacos and burritos. It was a nice place, with an authentic atmosphere. The service was not impressive, but again it's not a place where you would expect such. Our orders were take and we got the food fairly quickly. And it was delicious! The burrito is massive and if you... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
