I’m glad to see Pancho Villa on the list. That was where I went when I visited San Francisco back in 2007. That was one of the first times I started using yelp.com to look for suggestions when I travel and it paid off big time. I’ve been using yelp.com as well as urbanspoon.com ever since.
Here’s how the neighborhood voted: https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AoffGLUiRz15dFB4OE9xbGpGTUF2Q3hrdEJvRl96R2c&hl=en&chrome=false&gid=1 https://spreadsheets.goog…chrome=false&gid=1
I’ve tried most of these and lately Cancun is my regular spot. I’m a little surprised El Farolito was the top choice but I don’t disagree. I’ve always liked theirs, I just didn’t know so many other people did also.
In the accompanying article, the Mission Local wades into the ever-raging controversy over who invented these stomach bombs:
Mission burritos are renown for their size and amount of ingredients, and have even inspired an entire style that is http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/09/13/FDGL8L16681.DTL replicated by national chains like Chipotle.
The origin of the Mission-style burrito is as nebulous as the origin of the burrito itself.
Some claim thathttp://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/09/13/FDGL8L16681.DTL El Faro served the first “super burrito” in 1961. Others say it only first appeared in 1961 at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2001/04/29/CM162769.DTL&ao=2 La Cumbre. Regardless who made the first one, it’s clear that the burrito has had a long and hefty history in the Mission.
