All meats are grilled fresh to order for their burritos, but the salsa is the real star here. We always have a pint jar in our fridge. Be sure to get the fresh stuff; the shelf-stable version is still good, but not quite the same. Bring back your jars for a $1 discount on the next one (or, do as we do and hoard jars.)
With a good selection of beers on tap, Papalote offers mexican food that is not cooked in a greaseladen hole in the wall. Even though some of those grease laden hole in the walls are some of my favorites, but Papalote is a refreshing change.
Lots of vegetarian options and their salsa kicks ass! You can buy it by the jar.
Fresh Mex...the real thing.. Not only does Papalote have the best fish tacos in SF...they also have the best breakfast and best salsa! And on top of that...the guys running the place are the coolest. What more could you ask for?
hey...my mommas in the kitchen!. This is the first place i go when i miss my familia, the food is delicious, the space is always hoppin' with music and bright colors, and the owners are almost cooler than the food & space combined! Papalotes is like going home to east san jo for me....if you haven't yet you must swing by.
the best salsa.
great veggie tacos.
fabulous music in the background.
Papalote. Papalote is a happening restaurant-taqueria in the Mission area. The food is excellent and prepared in a very healthy manner -- it is a favorite among local vegetarians and vegans. Not being a vegetarian myself, I love the flavorful, tasty food they offer. Plus, the service is great -- the guys who own this place are awesome and it is always a pleasure to see their smiling faces behind the register. The restaurant is not huge, there is ample seating, but it is really cute -- decorated with kites and always playing some good tunes. My favorite Mission-area restaurant when I'm not looking to lay down just a buck for a greasy taco (and sometimes I am...)...
HotAsianLovesBurritos. This place is off the hook and my friends do agree and the owner is fine!!!!
Fresh and Healthy value meal!. As a vegetarian, I had many choices - the grilled vegetable burrito was great - the produce tasted fresh. It wasn't too heavy, and was low-priced. You have the option of eating there or taking out.
fresh. I love papalote because it's a fresh and healthy alternative for me who loves burritos elsewhere,but appreciate a healthy alternative without sacrificing flavor but with out lard and cheap ingredients and really fresh and yummy,plus it's clean and friendly and the always have such great music and it's cool looking inside and most important,it's clean....
The new king of SF burritos?. Papalote may have the best burrito in San Francisco. My personal favorite is the chicken burrito with black refried beans. The chicken is all white meat and pre-marinted to perfection. The black beans are unique and very tasty.
Tasty/Cool spot. Papalote has great fish tacos. The owner is pleasant, the place is clean, and they offer a good beverage selection. We keep coming back to buy the guac for gatherings.
