Service incredible, friendly
Overall excellent taste , thank you so much
Cannot speak highly enough of their food and service. The namesake speciality of the Mayan based menu Poc Chuck and the Cochinita Pibil are absolute musts (recommend early dine-in for most tender Poc Chuck, melts in your mouth when they very first grill it up). And the tortillas freshly made each day from fine white masa, are a rapturous experience that everyone deserves to have at least once in their lives.
Our diets are limited by gluten and dairy restrictions and this is our very favorite restaurant, hands down.
We had problems while ordering as the waitress didn't know English and we didn't know Spanish. She was really helpful and food was good
The food is really great, I love to eat there from now on, commendable customer service.
Been going here for the last ten years, never disappoints
Mexican food and the atmosphere here is super good. It's so savory. The service here is great. It has a nice atmosphere. Feels similar to a restaurant in New York I liked.
Good lord, this was some seriously good food. Quite possibly the best Mexican food I have had in SF and the Bay Area in general.
We started off with the appetizer plate, which was...admittedly not very good. I was nervous for the main courses, until they came out. They completely redeemed the appetizer.
We got the Poc Chuc, mole con pollo, and cochinata (cerdo). All of them were incredibly, especially the poc chuc and mole (+2 tacos for good measure). The star of the meal were the tortillas, which were just to-die-for. Probably the best I've had in a long time, sightly better than Gallardo's down the street. Homemade of course.
The staff were also incredibly nice and patient, and the ambiance was friendly. All around, this is now one of my favorite restaurants in SF!

Really delicious Mayan inspired Mexican food with overly fair portions for the price. Definitely get the Poc-Chuc, it's to die for.

I love this place. A family own restaurant and Yucatan food delicious. One of my favorites places to eat from South of Mexico.
The Mission has many hip and trendy eateries, but most of them are only known for their see-and to-be-seen party atmosphere and not for their cuisines. Poc-Chuc is an exception! This cool Spanish Mayan restaurant serves great, awe-inspiring foods! And yes, the in-the-know crowd is lining up to get in! (Warning: its very popular, so reservations are almost always required for any night of the week!) Inside, the red and gold dcor is warm and welcoming. Tables and chairs crowded the long, narrow interior. In a corner, a handsome musician plays romantic Spanish tunes on his acoustic guitar. The food is unpretentious, made with fresh ingredients, looks and tastes like a home-cooked meal, just delicious!
Air conditioning wasnt working and it isnt the nicest restaurant in appearance so I almost left but am so glad I stayed. The food and service was amazing. I had never had this style of Mexican food but it was really delicious. Will definitely return.
Fantastic food, wonderful service
I made reservations, by phone, for a party of 9 people to celebrate a friend's birthday. Everything was great! The guacamole was very good, awesome chips, I got the Poc Chuc, and it was great. The rice was amazing. The service was awesome. I plan on going back even though I live in the east bay. I loved it.
Have you ever heard Mayan/Yucatan cuisine in Mexico? I think this is the most unique and extraordinary place when it comes to eating Mayan/Yucatan cuisines. This is absolutely top notch!! Mole,Poc-chuc are the most representative cuisines which are awesomely good. Totilla is daily hand-made so the shape is not well rounded. Mole is watery but, simply good. Poc-chuc is winner. It has perfectly fantastic combination of citrus marinade and grilled pork. Taste is amazingly sour and flavorful. It looks like as if Korean pork is grilled with citrus marinade. Kotzito is insanely good. Taco is rolled, deep fried, smothered in tomato, black bean sauce almost like gravy. It was very unique experience!!
Good food and very good service
Best sangria and carne asada, guacamole etc..
Good food and services
The poc chuc ist the best
Was good. Home made tortillas. Delicious salsa. Favorite part was the couple that own it, had their son working. He was a hard worker. I think that is something this generation is missing, instilling hard work and responsibility at a young age.
(Translated by Google) I remember it
Homemade tortillas, amazing salsa. Dont miss their guacamole & chips and, of course, Poc-Chuc!!!
Seriously. Just go here. Best tacos in the mission for me by far. Get the Poc chuc taco. A little longer wait I guess but the meat is slow cooked, so tender and tasty. The tortillas are so soft tender, gooey corn perfect authentic style. Felt so taken care of, this place is a Gem.
Seconding what another reviewer said. Love that they have their miho on staff working hard and being professional. Wasnt able to tip cause he ran my card without adding a tip or leaving an option for one. Was weird but ill definitely be back to compensate.
Low key restaurant with yummy food. I completely forgot the names of these appetizers we ordered... they were about $5 each. Both were so delicious.
One has black beans on the base of the tortilla, the other does not. Both are yummy.
The shredded chicken is cooked nicely. Tasty, yet not overly salty (the way i like my food)
(Translated by Google) Very rich
Just got back from a trip to Mexico City and around Yucatan, and I somehow still ended up here. The chimole taco here was better than almost everything I ate there...
Karaoke and honest
I love their pibil dishes, either cochinita or pollo.
Little family-owned gem in the mission. Fantastic food at fair prices. Try the salbute and poc chuc!
Pretty tasty and modestly priced. My first go was dampered by very loud music and patchy service, but the menu was just full of interesting options. So I'll probably give it another try for lunch some day soon.
Poc-Chuc is a great place to go for a traditional, fair-priced, delicious and filling eating experience
One of the city's best
Excellent food and service and the staff are incredibly friendly. Great family, great breakfast.

Ordering was easy. The lady who helped me was very nice. I ordered two Empanadas. And OMG!!! Why didnt I come here earlier. You now have a loyal customer. Food was traditional and delicious. Portion size was big. Taste and texture on point. Im in love!
Cute place, good food. It's small tho and I haven't been here when it's busy since I avoid the busy hours. Great Mexican food. I've only had the burrito and quesadilla but they were both great. Great hand- made margaritas. Delicious authentic Oaxacan food. Great selection of toppings. Great vegetarian options.
Absolutely delicious, authentic & California fresh! The carne asada is tasty, the beans delicious, the chips and salsa fantastic and the pan dulce...just right! We also fell in love with their margaritas! They were sweet, classic and oh so refreshing. We ordered two...each! We feel so lucky to have caught this place on opening night. Remember, you're not at a fast food joint...so show a little patience, order a Margarita and chill for a moment. This is like a little getaway to Mexico in San Francisco! Can't wait to go back!
Delicious mayan food. Try the panuchos!
Love thos place
Delicious, generous dishes, and excellent service!
Excellent poc-chuc with huge portions!
Definitely need to add the black bean sauce for moisture but otherwise outstanding.
Have you ever been in Yucatn? It will be good if you visit Yucatn and then come back to Poc-Chuc, then you may understand better about the pickling.
Delicious, Yucatan food. Clean restaurant. Friendly staff.
(Translated by Google) Traditional yucatan food very delicious
Comida tradicional de yucatan muy delicioso
The burrito was massive. Good especially for what I payed.
Baller Yucatan style mexican food. We always get the Poc Chuc and Conchinita Pabil, they rock! The house made tortillas are thick and tasty and the habenero sauce is perfect. My son got the Poc Chuc nachos this time and they were super good.
Excellent food service is perfect everything
Controversial statement: This is my favorite burrito in the Mission. I could come here daily. Big fan of the black beans. Chips are also a treat. Yum in the tum.
Just delicious with flavors you didnt know existed. Real authentic food makes you feel like a culinary connoisseur for picking this yummy joint.
For so long I've seen the sign on this establishment whilst driving by on South Van Ness. Mayan cuisine? Okay, that sounds hella interesting! Personally, I've had the opportunity to dine in (in pre-COVID-19 times) and the ambience was just so homey. The employees are a family: father, mother, and teenage son. This is home-cooking to its core and the flavours and portions def prove it.
During these times I make it a point to order takeaway from here whenever I have to be in or passing through that part of SF. The pollo pibil is authentic af and so dang tasty! Pollo rostizado will get your RIGHT together! Def go for the Mayan platter, chock-a-block full will various tortilla finger foods.
This restaurant...nay, this GEM , has worked so hard to stay afloat and operating during the pandemic and I highly suggest calling ahead to place your order--it'll be ready in a timely fashion. Buen provecho!
(Translated by Google) It is a good place for Yucatecan food
Es un buen lugar de comida yucateca
Can vouch for the pollo en mole and namesake poc chuc. Corn tortillas made in house! I'm so lucky to live in a city with great Yucatecan food like this place. Can't wait to try the pibil next time.
Soooo goooooooood!!!!! Please go here I would've missed the sign if I hadn't looked it up but best Mexican food I've had in a long time!
The food here - OMG! We had the Mayan platter and poc chuc which was a gorgeous flame charred pork!!!! And the outdoor hut gets full sun - brilliant!
swing by to help small businesses that makes Mission amazing!
Good food, large portions, helpful staff. Will definitely be back again.
Ok so Bear and I were in SF about 3 years ago and we ended up in a fantastic little hole in wall that offered whole fried fish. It was amazing and we never forgot the fish, but we did forget the name of the place.
This time we visited we searched for whole fried fish in the vicinity we knew we were in and we ended up here. At first quite disappointed because the second we stepped in we knew this wasn't the same place, and we had ordered takeout so it was too late to back out. But when we actually tired the food, we realized this it was even better than last time.
I highly recommend this place. The plates are beyond generous and beyond delicious. Plus they have this spicy salad that I have never tasted before. I wouldn't even know what to associate it with. A complete new flavor in my life, so spicy it might kill you, just how I like it.
Will definitely be back. Absolutely recommend this place!
Came here the other day with a group of 5 (plus a child). This place was so great.
The location is perfect for those who have to drive (IE, families), because it's just far enough from BART to have parking but also close enough to BART to be a nice walk.
I was one of the first folks to come in - walking in, I saw a table of 2 latinos and was immediately feeling like this would be a legit place. Though, during our dining a more diverse mix of folks came in - including a few families. Love that this is a kid-friendly place.
My friends and I have never had "mayan" food specifically, and had an assortment of foods.
Ended up getting both pibils. I was a little concerned because I thought it was the same ingredients. But somehow, the pork and chicken pibil tasted a little different - both in great ways. So good.
Had the poc chok, which was the clear winner of the whole table. Appetizer platter was good, but it's basically one of each app on the menu. Which was good - but sharing was hard. We had to make the tough decision to not share as it would have been a mess.
Plantains are always good.
So the food is solid (we were soo stuffed after), the location is great. What makes this a 5 for me? The family vibe. I watched a young man wearing a school uniform (on a Saturday!?) walk in and directly to the staff person that was there. He immediately kissed her cheek and hugged her, then got behind the counter to help out. O.M.G. DUDE. FAMILY LOVE. The 5 is to encourage YOU, who's reading this, to GO AND TRY THE FOOD. And please support this wonderful family business.
I've walked past this mom n pop shop and wondered about it many times. After finally trying it, I see why they've been able to hold it down in a rapidly changing neighborhood. Spoiler: it's because their food is delicious!
I had the veggie trio ($12), which was essentially an empanada, a tostada, and a sope (they called the sope-like component something else) filled and topped with delicious veggies. Don't be offput by how few veggie options there are, this one is plenty! The sope-like portion of the dish was my favorite, but the whole meal was positively nourishing and delicious.
The tab for four gals to have dinner and drinks (with one not drinking) was about $80 after tax and tip. Which is crazy reasonable for San Francisco. Service was a little slow but I didn't mind one bit. When I say this place is a mom and pop, I literally mean it. There's one man and one woman who take your order, cook your meal, bus your table, etc. It's amazing what the two of them are able to do together by way of quality food. When people ask me where to go in the Mission, 100% this is where I will now recommend!
If you yen for the delicious food you had in Mexico (not Baja but real Mexico) this is the place for you. Wonderful Pollo Pibil, flavorful and not over the top anything but flavor. Warm and friendly service, ever refilled large glasses of iced tea, but also all the wonderful Mexican fruit drinks. I have only been there once but the menu reads really well, lots of things sound good and I can't wait to go back Pros: Great Food! Great Prices!
Poc Chuc is one of the few worthwhile BYOs in SF. It also happens to serve fantastic Mayan cuisine (think turkey). It's tucked away below Mission on 16th, which keeps the Marina away. Even Mission pros don't appear to know much about the Chuc. And here I am, posting about it. Pros: Excellent food, inexpensive, friendly, BYOB Cons: Can be busy (when there's not a depression on).
