Ok, I know, it has a cheesy name. It's all the way out in the Sunset district. It's full of high school kids. Push these things out of your mind of a second: this is some shockingly good Mexican food. The wet burritos are crazy good, but expect to be in a food coma for about a week.

what a fantastic accidential discovery! i have been a faithful customer for several years - even though the prices have gone up ever so slightly, by comparison this is by far one of the best bargin meals you can buy in Pacific Heights.

Pros: great food, fast service, relatively easy parking

Cons: No ambience whatsoever, closed on Sundays

One of the best burritos I've ever had in this price range. Very good and very big. I had a regular chicken burrito but could not finish. My daughter only finished half (she loves birrito!) This is not fancy place. I always order to go.

Pros: Price, Food

El Burrito Express is great! My favorite is their chile verde meat. The carne asada is also good. I think the pollo is on the dry side, though. But as long as I still with chile verde, it's all good to me!

I always get a super bronco burrito with grilled steak, huge and very tasty. Food is always fresh and high quality.

In El Burrito Express, you can buy a very cheap, authentic Mexican meal that's very filling and very quick to order and recieve. Some of the best items on the menu include Super Bronco Burritos for very big eaters, regular tacos and burritos for an everyday price, and a complementary serving of fresh and crunchy tortilla chips with some truly wonderful salsa.The food tastes great, is cheap, and is made fast, but the restaurant itself is the only problem. During peak hours, the restaurant is extremely crowded with barely anywhere to sit and eat, and is hot and stuffy.

Pros: large portion sizes, service, location, close to me

Cons: space to dine in

Never had I experienced the worse burrito of my life. Not only was the serving portion size of the SUPPOSED SUPER burrito was equal to that of a Don Miguel Frozen Burrito from 7-11 but the carnitas was overly dry and SALTIER THAN A SALT

I always order the espresso burrito, its a burrito topped with enchilada sauce, avacado, and cheese. The burrito is so big and filling that I eat it in two meals. They also give you chips with it, which makes you even fuller. I like to use

Burritos at El Burrito Express 1 are cheap and conviniently located on a street that usually offers plenty of parking. There is also a nice playground a few blocks away!

Somehow something gets messed up between the Taraval and Davisadero versions, the Taraval is much better. Good meaty portions of carnitas (not overly fried) --- the chile colorado EXPRESSO burrito is good, wet and will knock you out for

El Burrito Express steak burritos stand a head and shoulders above any other I've had in the city. I can't fully explain why - there are fresher ingredients and more exotic options at places like Pancho Villa, and you probably wouldn't

This is primarily a burrito take-out place with 3-4 window counter stools for dining. My family like the large burritos (super burritos are even bigger!) and chicken quesadilla (no sauce). You can substitute black instead of pinto beans

Burrito was average. Not bad, but not great either. I've had better burrito's in the Mission. However, I also had the tamales and they were great. They were topped with cheese and some red sauce (ranchero?) and was quite tasty. I'd

Since there is a severe lack of taquerias in the sunset, I was hopeful that this would be a good one! And it was! Though I did see a few seats at a bar, I think it's mostly take-away. I had a shrimp burrito which was quite tasty, though I

A loyal following keeps this tiny Mexican takeout joint thriving. A total of seven stools and a small counter offer the option of a sit-down meal. The burritos--mini-mountains of ingredients that venture into…
