Can't knock the margaritas. They went down very smooth. I ordered the pollo con mole. I'm a sucker for mole. It was good. I loved the elote!

First time here - Saturday lunch with the family. The tortas carnitas sandwich was exceptional and plenty of food. Family ordered a variety of soft shell tacos and all were great tasting. Three tacos per person was a great lunch (1.5 orders per person). Service was outstanding - server really added to the overall experience.

A nice restaurant to stop into before a Giants game or a bite to eat off Caltrain. The margaritas are the thing to get here as they come fresh and on the rocks. Tacos (2 to an order) pair well for a light lunch pairing.

We arrived at 9:17 (they close at 10:30) were refused service. Well, to be clear .. we were offered shots or bottled beer. We were told the kitchen was closed. Based on the other reviews we speared ourselves the bad food. Very poor service.

Discovered this place by accident, though it is just around the corner from where we live. Authentic Mexican food, though I am not an expert, good location, close to AT&T and reasonably priced. Kind and efficient service.

The highlight of the meal was being able to eat chips and salsa. Eating GF is a challenge, so I appreciate that they have a lot of choices. The food was good, but nothing great. Service was average. I would go back, but not raving about it.

Am temporarily in San Francisco for business and live near this restaurant. Despite how cool and fun it looks it has been a huge disappointment in service. Twice when I've been in for a drink and food I've waited 20 minutes before even getting water and an acknowledgment for a waiter. Another time I sat at the bar and eventually... More

First time here ... most likely last time, as well ... We came here before a Giants game for drinks and snacks. Wasn't crowded, and ambience is fine. Ordered bar comidas of queso fundido and quesadilla de hongos. But first, let's get to the drinks. We all ordered margaritas, on the rocks, salted except for mine (there were four of... More

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
