Best Burrito in the Mission 5/28/2006

I realize the title may sound like fightin' words to some but I stand by my choice. While the salsa can be a bit on the spicy side (and, okay, I"m a wuss when it comes to the picante), everything else about this little taqueria at 19th and Mission is near-perfect. And the crowd is a mix of locals having a post-work bite and revelers getting a good base coat going before they imbibe at one of the many local bars. more

I just don't see it 4/30/2006

Yeah, the burritos are massive, and sure, the prices are still pretty affordable, but I just don't get what the fuss is over Cancun's burritos. Earlier this week, I stopped in while walking through the Mission to have a quick burrito. Seeing that the super burritos were under $5, I figured they would be small compared to Pancho Villa, but I wasn't starved, so that would be fine. Boy, was I wrong. This burrito was the size of a quart of milk. But I digress, before I talk about the size of the food, I should talk about the order. The first disappointment was that Cancun didn't offer carnitas or chile verde - my two favorite preparations of pork. Instead, I had to settle for the Al Pastor - a dry rubbed pork that is grilled or roasted before service. The meat had a sort of funky seasoning to it, tasting of cinnamon and allspice. Though it wasn't an offputting taste at all, it didn't really go well with the rest of the burrito fillings. Let's dissect the burrito further. The tortilla was actually superb, tasting a little wheaty and nicely elastic. The beans, on the other hand, were bland, as was the rice. The ratio of rice to beans to other fillings was way off as well - half the rice would have been fine and the resulting product would have tasted much better. The guacamole, salsa and sour cream were fine - not bad but not outstanding. Personally, I'd rather pay a little more and get a better if smaller burrito than get this rice filled gut bomb. more

Taquerilla Cancun 4/26/2006

Used to be the best. In the old days, I used to eat here several times a week, throwing down $2.96 (that's tax included) for a veg burrito, or sometimes splurging for a majado, all slathered in salsa, enchilada sauce and sour cream. No longer though. At some point in time, they just stopped making good burritos. And they raised their prices. Bad move. My heart still grieves. more

Taqueria Can Cun 8/20/2005

This place makes the most delicious burritos I have tasted yet. Their burritos are not pricey at all. It costs about 5 dollars for a big burrito, some free tortilla chips and salsa. A very good price for a meal that big. I have went there many times and loved every single one because the burritos are just that satisfying. more

BEST burritos anywhere 7/18/2005

I've been eating here all my life, and everytime I get a burrito somewhere else I regret it. The burritos here just can't be beat. My personal favorite is the beef super burrito, but the grilled chicken is delicious too. They've also got a bunch of awards for best burrito up on the walls, so my opinion is shared by others. The prices are decent, a super burrito costs about $6. more
