-this photo is NOT a burrito. if you think it is then a smack down is in order!

Well he did it. Jordy Grgich posted on our Facebook wall “Very important debate we must get to the bottom of: who has the best burrito in South City?” As you know we’ve had some very engaging debates over our best sandwhich deli and now it’s the burrito who is up for the test. So where do you find the best burrito in town?

Can you believe over 140 people weighed in with your favorites? One of our best responses included a youtube video highlighting La Tapatia, created by Javi Valencia. Check it out.

However after reading all the replies it seems perhaps La Morena may just be the winner.What do you think?

Christopher Mezzetta Tapatia is very good, but is there a whole bean option? And they close too early for us city-working folks. Have to go with La Morena – best carnitas in town. Favorite late night spot? Metates is open until ten most nights.

Deacon Joseph LeBlanc Los Cuates in Brentwood neighborhood.

Johnny Grgich I hope when people say el faro they mean el farolito. El faro is barely a step above Taco Bell.

Ernesto Martinez TAPATIA!!!!!

Deanna Mercurio La Morena!

Eve Vuillemainroy Taco Bell Burrito Supreme. Late night munchies, best burrito out there. Add a tostada or crunchy taco and its the 4th meal. Best tacos would be Jack n the Box – 2 for $1.08!!


Justin Cresci Yeah El Faro is terrible. La Morena is good but I prefer the one in Daly City (along with Taqueria Maria). La Morena is good, haven’t been in years. Tapatia I was never a fan of, even w/o the lettuce. Only El Farolito I’ve been to is the one in the Mission and its really good.

Lou Pantoja Celaya. Best burrito everywhere. Period…

Antonio Esparza TAPATIA!!!!!!!

Riko Ćus EL FAROLITO! Game over!! Tapatia doesn’t do a thing for me, although my wife loves it. Blah.

Amanda Kesner-Hays Los Metates!

Terri Frances La morena.

Betty Reyes La morena & los metates

Oscar L Martin Tapatia hands down. Taco Bell is not Mexican nor is jack in the box

Alexandra Luna When I was in high school I was in love with el faro. Ever since they put the drive through in their food has gone downhill. I go to el faro in the city for a good burrito.

Martina Navarro Los cuates!! Off tops the bomb!

Alejandro Orozco Closing hours aside, as far as taste La Tapatia. El Faro I tried cause all my friends in HS said it was good but Ehhh 6 out of 10 in my book. Having a great Mexican Mom as a cook you know a good Burrito from the first bite.

Efren Chavez Los Cuates

Marsha Wray El Faro

Sthiv Roy Valencia Martinez Celayas 49er Burrito hands down.

Hektor Garcia FAROLITO, cuz La Tapatia is ‘rolling pinner wraps’ these dayz.
