El Farolito is a Mexican Restaurant with several locations in San Francisco’s Mission district, Oakland, South San Francisco, Santa Rosa, and Rohnert Park. We visited the 24th street location.

Decor, Vibe – Pretty plain jane dining establishment, no beauty awards here. Mostly locals eating of all ages and ethnicities.

El Farolito San Francisco Menu


El Farolito San Francisco Chicken Quesadilla

Chicken Quesdilla Suiza ($5.45 for regular) was pretty big and full of chicken. They ask if you want grilled or boiled chicken, a first for me. Cheese, chicken were all delictable. One of the better versions in the city. Chips cost 0.50 extra now.

El Farolito San Francisco Al Pastor Burrito

Al Pastor Burrito ($4.45 for regular) was pretty massive for the price. Good amount of seasoned pork. I prefer the Al pastor flavor elsewhere but found this a solid version. Fresh rice, tomatoes, and black beans.


Horchata ($2.75) had decent flavor but was not stirred up well. Lots of powdery residue floating around.



El Farolito took about 5 minutes to get the food ready. Prices are pretty good making this a good value. We would rank the taco trucks like El Tonayanse and El Norteno slightly higher in terms of food quality, but the food here was pretty good.
