Authentic Mexican food in a good location. The Quesadillas are the best with meat, sour cream, guacamole, cheese and pico. This place is usually visited by the locals and that tells you is a good place to eat. I didn't take a picture of my food, because it was to good I couldn't wait.

A great value, simple little Mexican restaurant serving tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas - that kind of thing. This was conveniently just up the road and around the corner from where I was staying in San Francisco at the King George Hotel.

I was tired and I just wanted something quick to eat. This happened to be close to my hotel. I bought the Baby Burrito. It was still pretty big. Came to about $7 something. It was delicious and quick too. They make the burrito in front of you. The person who helped me was pretty friendly.

The burritos are made in front of you so you can choose the fillings you want. The end result was a substantial meal and very tasty!

It is a small nice place where you can try real mexican food. A friend of mine took me there, and we really enjoyed the experience. We had burritos and special nachos with a couple of mexican sodas. We spend about $22.00, much less than what we would spend in Chipotle. Food is really good. You have many food and... More

Catty corner from hotel. Wanted a quick lunch between meetings. What a treat. Ordered a fish taco and a prawn taco. They cooked the fish etc. to order. Toppings were fresh and scrumptious! Would go back for sure!

Only 5 mins walking from the Handlery, not the restaurant where I would usually go, but it was a great choice, food was great fresh, not a touristic place, local people go for a quick bite, the 2 guys where friendly and polite, for a while I felt I was actually in Mexico, great...I would go again before I leave...

We ventured to Taqueria el Sol from Hotel Monaco, about 1 block away. The food was very fresh tasting, reasonably priced, and good portions. The "regular" burrito is a sufficent size for the average eater.
