Lonely Planet review

For real-deal Mexican food, in a strip mall south of the Mission, try this multi-room counter-service restaurant, panadería (bakery) and mercado (grocery store). Look for tacos, tostadas and burritos in freshly made tortillas, aguas frescas (fruit drinks) in flavors like watermelon, strawberry and grapefruit, and breads and pastries starting at just 59¢.
