    55555 by Oliver H.


  • Jonathan W.Their super fish burrito *may* be my most favorite burrito in San Francisco. Get it super (guacamole, sour cream, cheese), black beans, no rice, dorado (extra time on the grill) style.

    55555 by Jonathan W.


  • Mike W.Must get the fish burrito. It's loaded up with light, flaky, tender white fish and all of the usually burrito fixings. Great flavors, cheap price, and very filling. WinstonWanders.com

    55555 by Mike W.

    55555 by Joseph M.

    55555 by Chad B.


  • Jonathan DSome of the best carnitas in the city, definitely get something with pork and you won't be disappointed! Though a little off the beaten path, their burritos are worth it...

    55555 by Jonathan D

  • Renee V.I don't know how this place is so popular, burritos are awful and unauthentic.

    22222 by Renee V.


  • Ron HWill return to try the super fish burrito. The regular fish burrito was not that flavorful. I'll have to try the super fish burrito in all fairness. I'll update the tip.

    55555 by Ron H


  • Chris H.Perhaps the best Mexican food in the City. House made chips make for great nachos and the burritos can't be beat.

    55555 by Grace S.

    55555 by Josh P.

    22222 by Jeffrey Glueck


  • Will B.Their carne asada super burrito has different cheese (cotija?) and ratios than most other mission burritos. Worth making the trek for.
