El Farolito is one of the top three things I miss the most about living in San Francisco. The burritos here are seriously the best--the delicious rice that really makes the whole thing. I come here every time I am back in town, and they never disappoint! (My mouth is salivating just thinking about noming on my next trip...)

The best burrito hands down. Super cheap. The chicken super nachos are like $6 and I dare you to finish them in one sitting. Delicious. The guys behind the counter are super cool even when it gets rowdy with the drunks late-night. The tacos are great. You have to ask for beans on your taco if you like that, they're not automatic. The turnover is high so everything is fresh. Shrimp cocktail, suiza, carne asada, carnitas, the list goes on. Everything I've tried here is amazing. Nice salsa bar. It's very loud with music and people and quite dirty on the tables and floor due to the high traffic so I always get it to go.

I think that guy meant "steal" crap. El farolito is the best. If you don't know, now you know.

people go nuts about this place but i think a lot of it has to do with the fact that they're really drunk when they eat here. on arriving in SF i knew i had to check out an authentic burrito and this was the one spot i kept getting told to check out. i got a super chorizo with a side of chips and salsa. the line to order was long and somewhat slow but the guy taking the orders has a very friendly, patient vibe and that helped balance the sort of rundown feel of the place. It's definitely not spic and span and there are all types of characters chowing down, from junkies to thugs to office types. i liked that a lot. the prices are very reasonable and everything looks fresh. the service was pretty quick too once i ordered. when all was said and done, however... i wasn't really blown away. it was tasty and hit the spot but not out of this world good. the chips were pretty crappy and seemed like something bought from a supermarket. and there was a bit too much rice in the burrito. otherwise, i'd certainly try it again but i want to check out some other places before i go back to nyc where chipotle and qdoba are ubiquitous.
