I found Taqueria San Bruno based off the reviews in Trip Advisor, but did not expect the foodie event that it became. After a long day of playing tourist in San Francisco, we decided to give it a try. I was a little concerned because is was almost dark and the neighborhood was almost completely dark, except for the restaurant. Once we entered, I knew it was good. There was a collection of people that appeared to be local and tourist alike. The food was out of this world! The Tacos were incredible, the only regret is that we had to fly out the next morning and did not have time to visit again.

I had a chance to speak with the owner, he was very friendly and demonstrated pride in his restaurant. He told me about the restaurant while we waited for the food. In other parts of the country, you would pay 2x-3x for food this good! Recommend the beef tacos.

The food is good and fresh. Love their fresh Salsa bar. The parking is always an issue, but well worth trying to park and walk in.

It was our last day in California and our hosts strongly suggested that we don't leave without trying the wet burritos at Taqueria San Bruno. It's a small restaurant with few tables, a small bar and a television. Not fancy at all. The service is very warm and personal. They have a tortilla bar where customers can take all they want with a minimum of one order of burrito. When our burritos finally came, wow!!! It was huge and fantastic! We tried the carne Asada and shrimp burritos with everything on it. It was a great eat at very affordable price!

Don't be too surprised by the neighborhood. It appears that your going to be eating in an auto body shop because there are a lot of auto body shops in the area. However, it is a great little restaurant with ample indoor seating and exceptional food. The indoor decor is nice, with some paintings that possibly depict Lake Chapala and nice wood tables. Also, the clientele was very friendly. Of course, I did not tell them I'm a Dodger fan. Staff is very friendly. Had a combination plate chicken enchilada and fish enchilada. The only negative of the whole meal was that the fish was overcooked and therefore a little dry. But the taste was great.

This is one of those places where you think when you enter for the first time "What is this?!". One would just never expect for the food here to be this good, made with really fresh seafood.

You can often see how they manually clean the shrimp in the back ...

They have amazing shrimp and fish tacos. Quesadilla Marina is also great (tortilla with shrimp and cheese).

Servers are mostly pleasant Mexican guys ... They are very friendly and somehow authentic, pristine and not pushy.
