Mission Burrito

After reading about this place in other posts I walked over to Village by the Grange at lunch today to see if it had opened yet. The name alone brought back memories of all the wonderful burritos in the Mission district of San Francisco and it had me drooling with anticipation. Unfortunately, it turns out that the name is the only thing that this place shares with the burritos of San Fran. For $5.85 (plus tax) I got a limp and soggy burrito. It was poorly folded and some of the fillings (presumably the sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo) were cold so that the entire thing ended up being tepid at best. Maybe I am mistaken, but I thought a burrito is supposed to spend a bit of "finishing time" on the grill. Not this baby, folded and stuck straight into its foil wrapper. Even with extra hot sauce it was pretty bland.

Sorry to report that this was a serious disappointment.
