SF Weekly's Description

Ramshackle, bare-bones, perpetually crowded hole in the wall offers excellent tacos, tostadas, tortas, and burritos at rock-bottom prices. The lengua (beef tongue) taco is tender and luscious; the al pastor (marinated pork) burrito is peppery and edged with lime and cilantro; the chorizo (sausage) torta is sweet, spicy, and habit-forming. Steak, chicken, cabeza (stewed head meat), and tripe are also available, as are enchiladas, quesadillas, and several varieties of agua fresca.

    Have a burrito...it's #78 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.

  • Juliette S. on 03/13/09

    Stumble drunk into El Farolito and order something in order to pretend you might sober up after eating

  • Brian on 01/23/12

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the super carne asada burrito is delicious. Yum!

  • Grub Crawl on 03/27/11

    Try something different: get the tostada! of course get the super burrito but that's not really a tip. www.grubcrawl.com

  • GourmetLive on 06/03/11

    Food blogger Stephanie Stiavetti says, “Their food is incredible and... they’re open until almost 3 a.m.! Fresh avocados and a ton of shredded cheese on every super burrito? Yes, please.”
