not the best place, but pretty much the only option if you're craving mexican in the haight and not wanting to hop the 33 to the mission.

Nothing spectacular, but quality tasty Mexican food. Nachos comfortably feed 3-4 people. Sit upstairs.

The restaurant itself is nothing special though it is comfortable. We've also been to cleaner places but I am not sure we have ever tasted burritos this good.

The burritos were absolutely loaded with everything you would expect and because of the way they were wrapped no food was able to escape our mouths and no clothes were harmed!

Lunch for two was $15 and I am sure my wife and I could have shared our burrito whch came with a big terrific cabbage salad and fresh tortilla chips - help yourself to one of several sauces.

We are still trying to figure out if we can get a delivery to Tokyo.

We were just walking by and the place was packed, so we figured it was good and we were right!! I love Mexican and this was the best fast food, authentic Mexican resturant. It was a lot of food and the biggest burrito I have seen but they roll it into the tightest burrito. They are not skimpy on their fixings either. The setting in the resturant is very colorful and fun! It is a must stop if you are in the Haight/Ashbury area!
