the triple threat dj's and the local underground hip hop artists of San Francisco grace this place when they crave fresh Mexican food. Owned by one of the most respected hip hop dj's and his brother, Papalotes is the liveliest place to be for a fresh take on Mexican food

I love, love, love this place. The food is clean (no lard, not too greasy), and the salsa is spicy. Perfect for Saturday afternoons, after a Friday night out. Or take it to go and eat at home. Or take it to the park. Really, any time

Pros: Great veggie food! All beans are vegan.

After I heard Papalote was voted the best burrito by Daily Candy, I had to try it. Even on a Tuesday night, the place was packed. My chicken burrito was good and ingredients were fresh, though nothing that stood out compared to other

This is one of the best - if not completely authentic - burrito places around. Awesome salsa, innovative burritos, and friendly atmosphere. Plus, if you call 10 minutes ahead, you can pre-order your food for it to be ready when you get

The food here is delicious, I have gone back there 10-15 times. The salsa they have there is out-of-this-world. Very cute, warm decoration. More of a lunch, afternoon place (at least I think of it that way). Service is not so quick

With a good selection of beers on tap, Papalote offers mexican food that is not cooked in a greaseladen hole in the wall. Even though some of those grease laden hole in the walls are some of my favorites, but Papalote is a refreshing

Not only does Papalote have the best fish tacos in SF...they also have the best breakfast and best salsa! And on top of that...the guys running the place are the coolest. What more could you ask for?

As a vegetarian, I had many choices - the grilled vegetable burrito was great - the produce tasted fresh. It wasn't too heavy, and was low-priced. You have the option of eating there or taking out.

Papalote may have the best burrito in San Francisco. My personal favorite is the chicken burrito with black refried beans. The chicken is all white meat and pre-marinted to perfection. The black beans are unique and very tasty.

Walker agrees with Squirreleone that this place deserves a place in the top ten, but not the top 5. The burrito was tasty, the guac and chips were great, and the chorizo con queso was devestating, in every sense of the word. My overall
