You have many options in this city when it comes to Mission-style burritos, but if you have a burrito bucket list, head to La Taqueria. This famous spot makes solid Mission-style burritos with just meat, pico de gallo, and pinto or refried beans. We like the carne asada super with avocado and melted cheese. And if you get it dorado, they’ll put the rolled burrito on a plancha and lightly crisp all sides.

The City Taqueria in Lower Pacific Heights makes great Mission-style burritos way outside of the actual Mission.
The upscale Mexican at Flores is a nice change of pace for Cow Hollow. You just have to do this place right.
Gordo Taqueria is a great quick lunch spot in the Richmond with excellent burritos. Make sure to get the chili verde.
