    So I could tell you that this is the best taqueria near the mission. But to be honest they are all amazing. What makes this place stand out is its fish tacos. Grilled to perfection and massive.

    Make sure you know what you're having, the line moves fast! Also, get ALL the salsas.

    Lots of natural light, ever smiling staff, charming live music, and burritos that make you forget every other. This is how I imagine Mexico to be! I will validate when I actually visit.

    A canteen kind of restaurant the place has a local feel and the food is cooked in front of you. Great place for a meal with friends and a drink or to grab something to go! Read more

    Nachos can also be refreshing and light. That's the approach at this spot, where lettuce and diced tomato adorn the taqueria's offering. The choice of succulent meat and rich beans is yours. Read more

    If you're craving Mexican food, you'll be satisfied after a stop at Pancho Villa. Order the garlic prawn platter with rice, beans and tortillas paired with one of their many fresh agua fresca drinks.

    Everything is fantastic, but for your first try definitely get the asada burrito with black beans. Unusually big seating area for a taqueria means you can usually find a spot for a group too.

    Haven't been there in a while but when I open the app Foursquare was reunited again! Pancho Villa is the go-to place it's friendly the atmospheres always upbeat and the food is always good!

    This is my go-to place for veggie burritos (or sometimes quesadilla!). They have great selections for vegetarians like me and my fave is Super Vegetarian Burrito with watermelon agua fresca.

    Best tasting burrito hands down. Tortilla was perfect, beans are perfect(I don't even like beans), meat is amazing. Couldn't ask for more. Brought my coworker here and she agrees it's that damn good.

    The shrimp and steak super burrito is wrapped well and tasty. It is 12 bucks though. There are 6 or 7 salsas in the back but nothing mindblowing there. Line goes deep; quite an operation.

    Basically perfect Mexican street food, cheap and delicious. My absolute favorite is the chile verde chicken super tacos with black beans and hot salsa.

    Pancho Villa serves one of the best burritos in SF. If your burrito needs a little extra something, Pancho Villa's remarkably-comprehensive salsa bar is there to rescue you. Read more

    Can't decide what you want? Order a la carte meat, beans, and other fixin's. Don't miss the champiñones al ajillo, those garlic mushrooms are delicious!

    The first Mission taqueria I went to in 2002 and still a solid place for a burrito or quesadilla. Make sure to load up on their excellent salsas!

    They are on DoorDash, good place to get some delivery burritos. Carne asada tacos/burritos are really tasty here. Not on the level of Farolito or Cancun though.

    A bit pricy, but from 3-5PM weekdays they have $1 tacos and $2 beers. (El Toro around the block does also). Had two Salmon Tacos($1.75) and a Negro Modelo for under $6 yesterday, they were great.

    I've tried about 10 taquarias now and this one is my favourite. The Salmon Taco is superb. So is the condiment selection, unlimited coriander and limes ftw!

    The fresh salsa bar is great, the shrimp quesadilla is awesome. The San Mateo location is better however this branch is still quite good.

    I eat here way too much, but their carnitas burrito is great and the verde salsa is phenomenal. I could drink their verde salsa straight up.

    Love their salsa? Take some home. You can purchase a larger container at the counter for $1.50.

    Get the mini burrito with guac & sour cream - it's definitely a meal on its own. And don't skimp on the habanero salsa!

    The garlic mushroom quesadilla is so so good. Just make sure you eat it quickly because it will get soggy in the takeout container.

    Thursday night the line is crazy long and parking is impossible but no matter what Pancho Villa is worth the wait

    This was so good. A little overwhelming given all the options, but even just a regular carnitas burrito was excellent.

    Get tacos. Super fresh pico de gallo. Grab for lunch then head south on Valencia Street for your hipster-tourist boutique shopping.

    Had a burrito basically the length of my forearm and cried after, it was that good… I also definitely ate it too fast but that's another story. Just go.

    Amazing carnitas, be sure to try some of their more exotic meats and top off whatever you order with toppings from the salsa bar.

    Closest thing to authentic Mexican I was able to find, but don't even think it's the same as chilango pastor.
