Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We ate twice at this small restaurant during our stay and the food was spot on! Outdoor seating was a nice option, staff very friendly and good vegetarian options.

Came here for takeout. Service was friendly and food was prepared quickly. We ordered a burrito and a quesadilla, both were delicious and good value. Would definitely recommend for a quick bite on the go.

This place is meant for more of a grab and go, but they do have one large table and a couple of small ones inside as well as a small covered dining area outside. Being diabetic can be a problem when I order Mexican so...I had to order my Super Burrito with Bulgogi Beef with no rice and in a bowl, they handled that with no problem, she said they frequently make their items as bowls. My husband ordered the California burrito which looked really good. The bottles of soda they have in the cooler include traditional Mexican Jarritos sodas, so that was a treat for hubby too. If you order a bowl and are planning on eating there you will get silverware, if not be sure to ask for some to-go silverware. There is a bottle opener in the dining area outside if you need it as well since they are not a restaurant with a wait staff. If you stop here bring an appetite, everything was good sized and we were definitely full when we left!More

Good value - cheap, quick, tasty food. I’ve never had Korean/Mexican fusion before so this was new to me and it was lovely! I particularly recommend the quesadillas with spicy pork in. Service was very quick and the lady serving us came out to wipe...the only outdoor table free down for us and clear the plates away so we could use it. Overall food quality good, quick and convenient. We would go back!More

Very poor quality. Have to provide a tip up front (15% minimum) before you get any service. Ordered drinks and had to get them from a refrigerator and open them ourselves. Only service was when had food delivered on plastic plates to our outside, in...the cold, table. No cutlery of any type. Food very average and tacos very small.More

Wow did not expect such a delicious burrito! Save yourselves from spending way too much $ on dinner elsewhere! Fresh, tasty burittos that were a welcome, healthy and affordable option in the heart of San Francisco!

It is a small place on Bush Street with a deck outside to have dinner. The fusion between corean and mexican food is original, I have never heard about before. The kimchi burrito was delicious and spicy enough. The quality/price relation is positive. Highly recommended.

Nice little place for a quick dinner or lunch with an unusual fusion of styles. I had the Pork Kimchi taco and it was pretty good. The pork was absolutely delicious although I would prefer slightly less vegetables mixed with the pork. The portions were...huge and very filling. Staff was very friendly and food was served fairly quickly. We were not looking for it, just walked by and decided to stop in and we’re glad we did.More

We were looking for a quick dinner after being tourist, so nobody wanted to commit to what they wanted. We picked this place based on location and review on Apple Maps. So glad we tried it out! The burrito was packed and rolled tightly, no...excess tortilla or filler. Price for value was fair; you can find cheaper but you won't enjoy it as much as you would here!More

Carnitas tacos were very good. Salsas had a nice amount of heat and they don’t skimp on the meat. Only thing to make it better would be tortillas made from scratch.

While I could do without the tater tots, the food is fabulous and filling. Korean spiced meats, mixed with taco fixins - a slice of heaven. The big ricardo is three burritos in one and its a mistake, like a big mistake to try and...eat it in one sitting. They customize all orders and are kind intheir service. It's quick and there's also great drinks to order. Wish there was one of these stores in my hometown.More
