This place’s hospitality is pretty amazing. I am really proud that I took my family in here last weekend, they have nothing but praised for this place.

Good deal, especially with their 2 dollar off coupon

Parking is a pain in the Mish, but Pancho Villa Tacqueria is definately worth it, esp. with the coupon.
Got a vegeterain burrito for about 3.50 with tax.

Very Good Mexican

I really enjoy the food served here. If in the area I believe you should give it a try. Just give yourself alot of time to find parking.

DO NOT LISTEN to those bad reviews and especially the ones about it being white washed. As a mexican I can say this place is NOT white washed. you want white washed then go to Chevy's. THis has got to be the best mexican taqueria in the city. And inexpensive to boot. like true taqueria format they got hella condiments (variety of salsa's, pico de gallo, limon, lemon, jalapeno's and carrots, raddish etc) a full bar of stuff. I love the taco's! two tacos, a churro, and a cold beer and I'm out! always eat there when I'm in the mission.

Bad burritos

This is perhaps the most white washed Mexican restaurant in the city. They serve lettuce and tomatoes and cater to hippy vegetarians with a veggie menu.

The Best Hands-Down

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The food is incredible, and every guest to the Bay Area I bring here leaves singing its praises. The lines are long, but they go by very fast. The only problem I can think of is that I never feel like experimenting, because I love their grilled chicken burritos I never think of getting anything else. :)

Best Taqueria in the Mission

I absolutely love this place. I've lived in the Mission for more years than I can remember and this place is by far the best. The chips are delicious! They are warm and cut thick for a homemade taste. The salsa bar is just like that you find in Southern California taquerias. I can't think of a single item I've had here that hasn't been tasty. The only complaint is that the line is really long during busy hours. You end up waiting a long time if you go at those times because they take awhile to make orders (done on the spot). I recommend the marinated pork and chorizo if you're looking for a meat that's different from your usual fare.

Best in town.

I can't tell you how many times I'm here. I brought my gal here couple of times and she loves it. The food is so good and people are nice. I love the sauces, so good. You got to go there and try it yourself to believe it.

Nothing bad to say about Pancho Villa's!

The great things all those other folks said about Pancho Villa's? Well, it's all true. I've eaten at a lot of taquerias over the years, and Pancho Villa's rates right at the top. Ignore the line, it moves fast, and it'll take you a while to read through the huge menu, everything you could want in Mexican food. Though burritos seem to be their specialty, they make a variety of full dinners, and you can watch as you wait in line. Your server consults you on every step of burrito construction, and all the meats and other fillings are right in plain sight as you make your choices. I love the carnitas, yum. The salsa bar offers many choices to augment your meal, and they also offer flan, churros and wedding cookies to finish off with.
Quick, cheap, filling, it's worth a trip even if you're not in the neighborhood.

For years, my husband (former San Fran resident) RAVED about San Fran burritos and on a recent trip from NYC, I finally got to taste why. The food here is amazing, fresh and delicious. The burritos are tasty, customized to your desires and wrapped tightly enough to be eaten while walking (though we ate in). Great juice bar. Great service. Good ambiance. Awesomely inexpensive. I can't wait to go back!

Best mexican in the mission

Long lines but totally worth it. Everything is good here. Burritos a must, fish tacos are my favorite here as well as the chicken tacos. Service is fast and efficient so the long line goes fast.

worst customer service at the embarcadero location!

I would avoid this place by all means. They have awful customer service. They have been rude every single time i've been there. there's also definitely better mexican food in the city that i would rather go. i recommend going somewhere where your patronage is appreciated!

Authentic and great!

Love, love, love it here!

I love this place. When I first moved here I heard about it and had to go. I missed my L.A. mexican eats! Everything is pretty good here, and you get your order pretty quickly. The only problem is the line. This place is usually crowded especially on weekends.

I love their carnitas, and their nachos, with or without meat!

A definite must try. They also have another location at the Ferry Building.

Always fresh and tasty mexican food!

If you're looking for a quick bite, but refuse to go to cheap fast-food joints, this is an excellent choice. I think it's one of the best mexican places in the city (for fast-food); they also have a restaurant in San Mateo. The food is always fresh, good quality and very tasty. They also have an excellent juice bar (10 times better then one of those over-rated juice places).

Best fast Mexican food in the city

There's no shortage of taquerias in the Mission, so when people claim this is the best Mexican in the city, it really says something. And, it's true. There's always huge lines. Don't let that deter you. The owner of this place just absolutely gets it. There's always a ton of staff ready to make your burrito, or any other Mexican standard. The prices are ridiculously reasonable, especially given the quality of the food. The chicken tends to be a little dry, but the carne, bbq pork (al pastor), carnitas, and chile verde pork are just awesome. The fish tacos are unbelievable and are not fried. Here's the cherry on top: even with the huge crowds, the place always has places to sit. As soon as someone leaves, the staff has the table cleaned in under a minute.

best burrito in the WORLD.

Seriously. Imagine the perfectly-warmed tortilla, smothered in moist black beans that are sprinkled with finely shredded iceberg lettuce, dolloped with smooth silky sour cream and the most-perfect-cheddar ever. Topped off with fresh roma tomatoes and zesty, tangy salsa.. rolled up into a delicious burrito.. and served. Get it with the spritzy apple soda, you're set for life people.
