We have been to this Salvadoran/Mexican restaurant many times and we can't say enough good things about the family that runs it. The food is always fresh, cooked to order and tasty. Serving sizes are rather large and most menu items are inexpensive for SF. I would put their Carnitas burrito up against any found in SF's Mission district. I... More

This is effectively a fast food establishment with seating if you want to eat in. My boyfriend and I shared some nachos with pork and fish tacos, everything was amazing. The staff were friendly, service was quick and the food was so tasty and very fresh (and all very reasonably priced). Don't be put off by the exterior - it's... More

We just moved near here and were hoping to find a decent burrito. We went to Olivo's and were so pleased! I had the California burrito, she had the Super Burrito. Both were huge and delicious and inexpensive ($8 or so). We also ordered Carne Asada fries which were amazing. We couldn't finish everything but we're looking forward to the... More

It's recommended to stay away from the "Tenderloin" area, and although it was closer to it than we hoped, we were satisfied with the food. The service isn't the best (waitress looking at her phone), but if you're hungry, it's good!

I had the super carnitas burrito and my wife had fish tacos. We were both extremely pleased. Cheap meal in no frills establishment. Roasted pork was delicious in the burrito. Free cheaps and salsa and all under $30. Worth a stop.

I walked by this place and grabbed a menu. When I saw that they served chile rellenos, I went in. Waitress isn't the friendliest person ( I'm surprised since buddying up to the customer can only mean a bigger tip ) but when I asked her to substitute something on the menu, she obliged without hesitation. Chile Rellenos ( which... More

Great Burritos and fast. I appreciated the homemade goodness of everything (even the chips!). I could smell the roasts and pots simmering at lunchtime. I went back a couple times. Gallivanting about the globe, one misses good burritos from home. This was a find!

It seems a typical centro american restaurant. I ate pupusas, a salvadorian dish. The prices are cheap. It's a different taste in San Francisco.

I had a black bean and cheese papusa and it was awesome. Chicken burrito was average, but I saw other plates come out of the kitchen (looked like carnitas or some type of pork dish) and it looked great. Good cheap eats if you are in the area.
