Love this place! Everytime I come here, I come for the Burritos. Every other place i've tried in the city just can't compare. This is my #1 spot for a burrito.

It always frustrates me to see all the Mission Hipsters lavishing all of their gushy accolades onto Taqueria Cancun when the REAL DEAL is right down the freaking street at El Farolito. Look here people... if you want to be satisfied by

Tarqeria El Farolito, with two locations in the Mission, is the best deal on food, all cuisines considered. Every time you go in, you know what to expect. The Super Nachos ($4.95) are about five pounds of deliciousness, with cheese,

Pros: Salsa bar, big burritos, post-bar-time eats

.

But it is on the small side (as far as taqueria burrittos go, still plenty for the buck) and it's a little more expensive than you'd expect.

The food is great, though. It's a must after a fun night boozin and dancing in the Mission.

This place is by far the best burrito I've had. It's huge and so cheap! Their green salsa is also great. I can't pin point what it's made of, but it's absolutely the best. I definitely recommend this place.

El Farlito may lack in decor but don't let that mislead you about their value and quality in food. Your food is made when you order it, with the freshest ingredients. One bite and you'll be hooked and convinced!

Eating at El Farolito after the bars close is San Francisco's equivalent of London's beer-and-vindaloo-curry combination - spicy salsa makes the food delicious anytime, but especially after 2 AM!
