Much like El Farolito, Taqueria Cancun is a solid place to get a BIG BURRITO. Their al pastor is super-flavorful, and you taste the spices in every saucy, messy bite. Decent array of to-go salsas as well, with plenty of kick if you want to spice things up.
Is it why vegetarians love it so much? (wink wink) – I loved my super-burrito: excellent tortilla (it's not, but it really tastes like it's homemade), yummy carne asada, drooling sour cream, a pinch of cilantro and big slices of avocado. It's too bad however they don't have lettuce and tomato - especially for my girlfriend who ordered the veggie kind. She found hers a bit sad with only rice, beans and avocado. She still loved the taste, though, to the point we wondered if they don't add a little "special" ingredient to the rice and beans. Maybe that's why some other reviewers are literally raving about the veggie burrito. One even describes it as "addictive"!!! Hee hee! Overall it's a pleasant place with big yummy burritos, and cheap... as long as they don't short-change you. They played that old trick on me: give the coins first, "forget" about the $10 bill.
Best Mexican in SF – Not only does this place serve the BEST burritos in San Francisco, they're also insanely cheap (the most impressive item, the Burrito Mojado, is only $4.80). The listing here says they're open until 1:45 am, but it's actually considerably later on Friday nights (it can't be any earlier than 2 when I walked in). Great place to go after hitting any of the many bars in the Mission. One caveat: if you don't enjoy spicy food (I do), you might want to control what they put into your item.
the canadian dream – It is known that mexican food in canada is pretty horrible and bland.
I've been to san francisco 3 times and ate there every time. The third time was part of a month long roadtrip throughout the U.S.. I admit that the only thing i thought of during the whole trip was the day we would get to san francisco so i could finally eat my taqueria cancun veggie burrito. Having travelled throughout north america multiple times, i am positive this is not only the tastiest and biggest burritos i've ever had, it is also the cheapest one. If you're travelling in the bay area, this can't be missed!
Never LIKED burritos til Cancun – I was an avid burrito-hater until I gave into the peer pressure to try Cancun. I am in love with their veggie burrito and burrito mojado (wet back). Plus, the guys that work there are total sweethearts and the service is always quick and easy. I have tried a lot of their menu items (the quesadilla w/chicken is to die for, if a little greasy) and enjoy most everything. As someone who detests "fast food" in general, I have been converted where Cancun is concerned. And unlike many taquerias, their space at 19th and Mission is actually comfortable and pleasant enough to eat at. And a great place to eat latenight after hitting the Mission bars!
Best Burritos by far – Yep, I've been to La Taqueria down the street and TC wins - every person I have taken to both agree (that's not saying La Taqueria is not great in its own right). Sure the burittos can fall apart if you don't know what you're doing, but the flaky tortilla is part of the magic. Still, this is the best burrito I've found in the US.
best burrito in America – These burritos are the best in the nation.
You will be shocked and amazed at how good they are. You'll keep coming back over and over again.
Addictive veggie burritos.. – Order the veggie burrito. The first one's not free but it's cheap and it's full of pinto beans, salsa, rice, half an avocado, sour cream, and is habit forming.
Mexican burrito joint as was intended – Taqueria Cancun is the reason one lives in California. Excellent, cheap Mexican food with hot sauce to clear your sinuses.<br>
Parking is Mission typically nightmarish, but you're usually eating there while wandering the bars. The service is well, non-existent since you're order from the counter, but I wouldn't have it any other way.<br>
The vast majority of the time, it's safe, but every now and then you'll get an aggressive gangster or drunk.<br>
The corn quesadillas are a must try. Mmm, cheese...
cancun is great – Tazueria Cancun really is one of the best taqueria's in the city. At either of their locations the food is wonderful. For ambiance though, go to the Mission location instead of the 6th & Market one.
try the Veggie! – Superb Veggie Burrito! Highly recommended wet back burrito, very very tasteful quesadilla!
