friendliest staff in the city!

Pros: fish tacos, large portions, cheap

They have a really good chicken burrito. And the staff is nice too. It is located in random corner of the mission, they've expanded their dining room space significantly next door.

Pros: chips

These folks know how to make their burritos. Everyone who works there is part of the same family, and you get a great vibe. We eat here at least once a week - the fish tacos are fantastic!

Ok, I've only been here once, but it was fantastic! Great nachos...but that's not too hard....and the BEST pork tamale I have ever had! Normally tamales are light on the fillings...but not here. Plus, you can't go wrong with the prices!

Ok, it has a very limited menu, but it does have charm and a lot of flavor. I had the shredded pork torta with all the fixings and it was delicious! I'll definitely go back to check it out...

Pros: Very Clean (100% score on gov rating), friendly service, tasty food

Cons: very limited drink selection, unless you want Mexican drinks...which really isn't a con, but I was craving a diet coke!

A Mexican gem? No precious gem here. Bland food. No flavor. I suppose if you wanted Latin American food disguised to be Mexican food then go for it. Everyone else here seems to like it but as a taqueria zealot, I was very disappointed.

El Metate is in my neighborhood, so I go there all the time. After trying out other taquerias in the area, I realized how much better than they are than everywhere else. I think I have been spoiled from being just a couple blocks away

...and I've tried them all. Fresh, tasty ingredients are combined in jewel-like tacos that are underpriced at $2 each. Try the fish tacos. Two of those make a perfect $5 lunch. Next time you're driving down Bryant, and you notice the sunny

I Live around the corner form this spot, and their burritos are hearty and generous. Their service is very prompt and attentive. Their supper burritos are only a little over $5 too. Love this place :)
