If you want some of the best Mexican/Salvadorean food in the Bay Area and don't mind waiting for it while you have a beer and talk with friends, go here. It's family run and they are always pleasant and welcoming. If you don't know what to eat, order the 1a, burrito and sope with rice and beans. I always go with an adobada burrito and a vegetarian sope. It's very inexpensive, too.

I agree with some of the people that the service can be a little slow... but they've never been rude to me and the food has always been worth it. I think places like El Caracol are much more deserving of praise and authenticity for true Mexican food than the WAY over rated ones on the other side of town (cough... MURILLO's... cough-cough). Murillo's is total fast food mexican wannabee food served by gringo's, if you catch my drift. El Caracol is in a different league. I have no idea why so many people persist in saying "Go to Murillo's for authentic Mexican food" when they REALLY STINK. I've even gotten sick their TWICE (I had to give them a second chance)

Pros: Parking, Convience, Price, Quality

Cons: A little slow on the service

El Caracol is spanish for "The Snail", and boy do they live up to their name. We've been there twice and never got food faster than 45 minutes after we put in our order. We went the second time because we thought they just COULDN'T be so slow again... boy were we wrong! We went with another family, both of us had small children and they were still as slow, or slower, than the first time. The food is good enough, just not worth the wait.
