Here’s where you go to stress-eat a burrito after a bad day. La Mission is a small, colorful spot on University doing big-plate Mexican food incredibly well. Portions are huge, everything is covered in delicious sauces, and there are enough vegetarian-friendly options to keep everyone in your group happy. Seating is limited and this place can get busy, so taking your meal to-go is always a good option - but if you do want to eat in, try to grab a seat on the patio. Wherever you eat it, get the lamb burrito.
