  Pancho Villa on 16th Street

If you are looking for an authentic taqueria try Pancho Villa in the Mission. Pancho Villa is an established restaurant that serves outstanding burritos. They do offer other traditional Mexican fare. An army of food preparers stands behind the counter to serve the patrons who line up to order their food. If you order a burrito, you will be faced will choices for types of beans, rice, and salsa etc. Freshly chopped meat is within view next to the other ready ingredients. Chips are complimentary. The burritos are pretty big, so don't feel wimpy if you want to order a "baby" burrito, which is big enough for most grown people.

Favorite Dish: My favorites are the steak or the vegetarian "special" burritos.
