La Taqueria

Mexican in The Mission, Dogpatch & Potrero Hill

SF's definitive burrito has no saffron rice, spinach tortilla or mango salsa – just perfectly grilled meats, slow-cooked beans and tomatillo or mesquite salsa wrapped in a flour tortilla. They're purists at James Beard Award–winning La Taqueria. You'll pay extra to go without beans because they add more meat – but spicy pickles and crema (sour cream) bring burrito bliss.

Worth the wait, always.
