Pricey, it's a treat! Voted best burrito in San Francisco, but I think their crispy tacos are the best anywhere in the universe. VERY crowded, almost ALL the time. Best time to go is around 2pm to 4pm. Call ahead for a pickup order to skip the lines, 415.285.7117.

Plentiful, fresh, made to order food. Never had anything there I didn't like. Budget friendly, too! It's a nice walk down Valencia Street to El Toro at 17th.

Sightseeing

It's UNDER the bridge, usually less crowded, an awesome view out the Pacific Ocean, unique historical tidbits await. Dress WARM, you'll encounter the wind. There is parking there and I usually find a spot, even on the weekends!

Parks & Nature

It's a hefty hike, but the views are incredible! 180 degrees from Golden Gate to Bay Bridge and all of downtown skyline and bay. Try to find the rope swing! It's called dog hill for a reason :) You can usually get your fill of puppy love.
