Mission Burrito + Taco Tour (Jeff's Favorites)!
San Francisco is the birthplace of the Mission-Style Burrito (the foil wrapped burrito that Chipotle then popularized). The best taquerias are within a 5 minute walk from my apartment! Here are my favorites.
The famous La Taqueria is the birthplace of the Mission-style Burrito. Also named the best Burrito in America! A must visit. Lines may be long, but moves quickly. Only a 5 minute walk away.

According to Eater San Francisco: "El Farolito, whose name nods to purported super burrito inventor El Faro, took the original Mission-style burrito and perfected it. These burritos — roughly the size of a neck pillow — are grilled to perfectly combine their ingredients, with rice, beans, and meat (carnitas and al pastor recommended) into a messy whole that’s far more than the sum of its parts. There are several Bay Area locations, and two in close proximity in the Mission, but the narrow, energetic Mission Street location is the favorite. Go for the super — an incredible value — and bring cash (they don’t take cards). It’s bright and upbeat inside, with some seating and the occasional mariachi band performance."

According to Eater San Francisco: "Brothers Miguel and Victor Escobedo opened their first Papalote at 24th and Valencia in 1999 (there’s now a second spot on Fulton) and from it they’ve built a salsa empire — their roasted tomato goodness is available by the jar all over the area. They don’t make their burritos in front of you, as they do at many of the area’s other taquerias, but their sizable creations typically do the trick, and vegetarians dig options like soyrizo and tofu mole."

The furthest of my taqueria recommendations, this one is my favorite for it's salsa bar. According to Eater San Francisco: "A bustling, tourist-friendly taqueria that spun off from nearby Valencia Street El Toro, Pancho Villa has served patrons in a bright, friendly space with lots of table seating since 1987. The menu here is lengthy, and burrito options are plentiful: Steak and prawns? Chile relleno? Classic orders — carnitas, carne asada, and so on — are your best bet, and be aware that “super” here includes lettuce on top of guac and sour cream. Also of note: The salsa bar is one of the city’s best"
