There are hundreds of Mexican restaurants in the Mission District, most of which are good but repetitive and similar. Regalito is modern in style and quite different. It has a couple of tables on the sidewalk, a clean diner style maple wood bar, behind which the cooks work, and an aisle of tables inside. The style of this place is on the trendy side, but the rotisserie chicken, pork, and beef are simply tastey. Add to that the excellent house receipe mole sauce, which is dark, chocolatey, and spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, is simply outstanding. Both corn tortilla wraps and standard American sandwiches are made here, in addition to plates of rice, beans, and meat. The guacamole is fresh, as are the chips, and there are a variety of Mexican drinks--jamaica and tamarindo--in addition to the Mexican beer list. It's a good clean place for lunch in the Mission District. Reservations aren't necessary, just show up, but you might call to check on the hours they're open. If you don't like the place, the Taqueria across the street is also very popular and substantially cheaper for food to go.

Favorite Dish: The rotisserie chicken with house receipe mole sauce was outstanding, no doubt about it.
