"You'll never leave hungry" from these "authentic" taquerias that "don't skimp on anything" , turning out "inexpensive" Mexican "comfort" food in "large portions" , including "big, fat, juicy burritos" ; the decor is "divey" and service can be a bit "rough around the edges" , but "lines out the door at dinnertime" are "good indicators" that the grub "outweighs" all else; P.S. the Mission locales are "open late for post-drinking sustenance in the wee hours."

Not much more to say; this place does everything right in terms of Mission Burritos: delicious and large burritos at a very affordable price. The fresh avocado in the super burritos only adds to an already great burrito. As long as the line isn't too far our the door the wait isn't long. It is open til 3:30am and a block from BART for late night eats. Cash only.

Bring cash because they don’t accept anything else. They are open until 3:30am. It’s not in the best neighborhoods so make sure you have nothing in sight in your car or the homeless people will break your window. And they are bold they broke the window of a car in front of mine and didn’t care that I was looking them. The food was good and the price was right. And the line was long but they were quick. Hope this helps ;)

I love El Farolito! Been there three times and have never had a bad experience. It's the authentic food and atmosphere I've been craving since moving here from Chicago. Hours are also excellent - satisfied 1 AM cravings last night. Long story short - this place is *the best*.
