SF (Tenderloin) - El Tesoro Taqueria & Grill?

In this other post was the first mention of El Tesoro

"El Tesoro on Geary & Larkin, open til midnight. Great Mission-style burritos (unlike many places, they grill the tortilla instead of just steaming it). Lots of good stuff you don't find at just any taqueria: whole fried fish (mojarra), camarones al mojo de ajo (garlic onion shrimp), bistek (fried beef strips). Not a real romantic kind of atmosphere as it's inside a grocery store."

They have another restaurant on Ofarrell.

Two different opinions

Burritophile wasn't as enchanted, but liked the al pastor and salsas.

Yelp seems to be favorable.

There are menu links on the Ofarrell Place record. However, all previous comments might be null and void as I found a change of ownership notice on the web dated April 2008.

Anyone else tried either place?
