Finally! A Cheap, Delicious Mexican Restaurant Downtown
We all know San Francisco is a mecca for Mexican food. We also know that the burrito is a staple of the broke ass. Good Mexican food is readily available in most neighborhoods in this city with the exception of the Downtown/Financial District areas. Caramba!, which is largely overlooked in my opinion, is your new option if the craving strikes while you’re in the neighborhood.
Sure, the food is likely the most important aspect of grabbing a bite. I must say, though, the service here will definitely be the first thing you notice. The employees here give the phrase “fast food” a new meaning.
Anyway, the food here is amazing and dirt cheap. They serve up dishes like chorizo and eggs for $2.75, cheese quesadillas for four bucks, soft tacos for fewer than three, and super burritos for no more than seven dollars. It’s like a broke ass dream come true. What’s really great is that if you’re in the neighborhood early they’re open at 6:30a.m. They remain open until 4:00p.m. from Monday through Friday.
Give this place a shot. You will leave happy, full, and only slightly less poor than when you entered.
