good, cheap, open late!

on the dirty side.

All true.

LA CUMBRE TAQUERÍA
515 Valencia (@16th St.)

I’d say good, not great.

used to be better.

Yeah, that’s what I hear.

PAPALOTE MEXICAN GRILL
3409 24th St. (@ Valencia)

clean, well-lit, quite fine.
burritos yes, tacos no.
sometimes a bit bland.

Yep, Papalote in a nutshell.

TAQUERÍA CANCUN
2288 Mission St. (btw 18th & 19th Sts.)
3211 Mission St. (@29th St.)
1003 Market St. (@ 6th St.)

ugh. why? well, it’s bad,
it’s dirty, and it’s not nice.
I don’t get it. blech.

Wait, what!? Actually, it’s good, it’s no dirtier than Farolito, and it’s nice. I totally get it. Yum!
