The Zagat Review
For over 40 years, this "true original" in the Mission has been churning out affordable, "delicious" Mexican meals including "awesome tacos" and burritos (they're "traditional" , so "they don't have rice" ); "seating is scarce" in the "no-frills" space, so prepare for "constant lines" – though the "speedy" counter staff keeps them moving.

Excellent tacos. Extremely crowded but the service is very fast. You have to eat the SUPER Tacos with beef. It's the best. Only downside its cash only. There is an ATM in the restaurant and a Chase bank next to the restaurant.

This place was rated best burrito in the US. It’s great but I wouldn’t say it was the best burrito I’ve ever had. Too many great Mexican restaurants in California to say one is the best. They do not have a chips and salsa bar and you have to pay extra for chips and salad. They have a secret menu. Google it to find out what they have on the secret menu. The grilled burritos are great. But I can safely say the deluxe Quesadillas is amazing!

This was pretty good but I think people hyped it up too much before I went. Beans taste very good, but I don't really want them standard on every taco. The tacos do not come standard with cheese or lettuce which was disappointing. I actually don't remember ever seeing lettuce on the menu. Cheese is 75 cents extra per taco. Each taco is over 4 dollars and supreme are over 7 dollars each. It is also cash only. So be prepared for that.
