Their carne asada wet burrito is what I recommend. This place may not look fancy but their food amazing and goes for a good price. Service is great, not once have I had a bad experience here. But it does seem to get busy around lunch time on the weekends.

I've been going to MI Familia in San Anselmo for years. Quality is terrific. Prices even better. I always get a huge taco for $3.00. At lunch time the place is full of Latinos - a good indicator of authentic + value. The avocado salsa is to die for. Salsa and chips bar gratis.

There is a large prepared food and bakery. I find the food too salty for my taste. But I love the selection of avocados, mangos, etc No organic food that I could find.

The restaurant setting is average but the food is reasonably priced and delicious. What sets this place apart from other Mexican restaurants is the help-yourself-counter to corn chips, salsa and pickles – no cover charge. The menu is limited and the offer of fresh-squeezed orange juice is a welcome treat.

Tucked into a shopping center between a dry cleaners & a beauty shop (and not too far from the Canal barrio) is this large, clean well-lit place with a pretty extensive straight-from-Mexico menu. Tacos (of course), big fat burritos, great dinner plates, a nice little salsa bar - and lots and lots of local Mexican & Chicano families enjoying super... More
