We stopped in here for dinner on a recent visit to San Fran and we were very pleased we did! Although we had to wait for a table, the staff were very pleasant and efficient, and the food was really yum! Good flavour, good spices...More

The place is unconventional in terms of it being a sit down place. You line up to order, pay, then find your seat. They bring you chips you get your own salsa and water or alcohol. They bring the food out when it is ready...More

I had lunch here two days in a row during a recent trip to SF because I liked it so much and it was the fastest, high value food option in the area. When I ate in, nothing came with my pork burrito, but when...More

Before I forget, if you order nothing else be sure to get the plantains! Hands down, the best I've ever eaten, including in the Caribbean. This is a loud, fun, happy restaurant that is tucked in the mall. It's Mexicine cuisine with a sophisticated and...More

We arrived in sf hungry and wanted to find somewhere nearish to our hotel in the Union Square area. We were not disappointed with Tropisueno. At lunch, you wait in line and order/pay at a counter. It's a little hectic and overwhelming, particularly if you...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized

Lunch is served from 10 to 4 on weekdays and a little later on weekends, but happy hour is only available at the bar and outside patio. You don't get happy hour prices in the restaurant. Happy hour is 4-6 p.m.
