This place hits the spot and is super cheap! The salsa is homemade and very good! I had the nachos, which are huge and definitely enough to feed 2 people. All of the ingredients are right out in front and you watch them make the food. Everything is fresh and simple. Will be returning many times I'm sure.
After a nice sunday trotting around the haight my girlfriend and i wanted some Mexican food. Popped into Zona Rosa and after seeing the size of those burritos we were a little intimidated... so we got the Zona Tacos and the nachos... The Taco was a monster and the nachos were great! Two Thumbs up from this Guy!!!
Good and healthy food. Fresh vegetables. Generous portion - comes with nacho. The nachos are hard though.
I've been here several times. I tried tamales and tacos. One taco, which has 2 tortillas, is big enough to fill me up.
Their salsa are pretty good.
Unfortunately this place doesn't have the famous Mexican beverage, horchata. One Mexican restaurant I've tried (see Taqueria Maria review) even has horchata, tamarind, strawberry and cantaloupe.
The employees have good attitudes.
...view moreI was buying 3 tacos to go (for 3 people) and the employee put those in 2 boxes. After I let her know that those tacos were for 3 different people, she made new ones because those tacos were mixed in the box and couldn't be separated easily.
Parking could be a problem because it's hard to find the street parking. Another option, you can try the public parking across which costs $7. Expensive.view less
After three years in SF, I started eating and loving the massive Cali style burritos about 6 months ago.
I've only been to 8 or 9 places, but Zona Rosa is the best I've had. Great meats (lean, flavorful) and damn good rice beans and guac/sourcream. Not too expensive either. The best I've had, everyone I talk to says similar. Definitely worth checking out.
I live near Zona Rosa, so I eat there quite a bit. As I've sampled more mexican food around the city, I keep coming back for the guacamole and awesome refried beans. There vegetarian burrito is hands down the best in the city. Zona Rosa is every bit as good as any joint I've been in the Mission, and the atmosphere is exaclty what you'd want in a taqueria. It's authentic, the portions are huge and the food is really, really good. People who think that the only good mexican is in the Mis...view moresion should try ZR and stop stereotyping!view less
On a sunny day in San Francisco, there are few things better than ordering a pinto bean, cheese and rice burrito at ZR, drenching it with salsa, and walking across to the park to eat it while watching kids play soccer and neo-hippies strum guitars and punk kids beg for cigarettes. After you eat, you'll definitely need a nap (these burritos are big and sloppy and filling) ... and you're in a perfect place to take one. So what if you have to withstand a little Jefferson Airplane blastin...view moreg from someone's radio?view less
