We were running late last night and needed to grab food to-go near CPMC. There was a spot in front of Pancho's (Geary & Stanyan), so we ran in. "How bad can it be?" we asked ourselves.

Pretty bad. We knew when the menu described a blend of cheddar and jack cheeses that we needed to reset expectations, but I really haven't been to a *bad* taqueria in so long that I forgot how bad it can be.

My "carne asada" torta was filled with a few sad vegetables and some oddly BBQ-flavored shredded beef on what tasted like an oversized Parker House roll.

R's mahi mahi burrito (what was he thinking?) was bland, I didn't want to try it so I don't much more than that, but he didn't come close to finishing it.

The guys at the counter were extremely nice, but the food was extremely poor. The irony of crossing the City from Bernal to grab burritos near the Richmond was not lost on us.
