Regalito is a small Mexican restaurant committed to bringing the "market foods" of Mexico to San Francisco. The dining experience is immediate, the food is fresh, the preparation visible, and the service friendly.

The idea for the restaurant was born during a meal at a Mexico City market stall; three women cooked from a small menu for a dozen customers sitting on benches surrounding the makeshift kitchen. No steam tables, minimal separation between cook and diner – instant community.

Regalito has been designed to encourage community between the kitchen and our guests. The kitchen is completely open, separated by a simple wooden diner counter.

Regalito offers free-range rotisserie chicken and Niman Ranch meats for eat-in and take-out orders. We are committed to using organic, local, and sustainable foods whenever possible.

Regalito is the best place in San Francisco to eat authentic, hand made Mexican food.

This is one of the Mission’s Little Jewels. It’s great Mexican food using fresh organic ingredients and delicious spices. I recommend the potato taquitos, dark mole, and enchiladas verdes. The staff is sweet and you never feel rushed. They have a beautiful outdoor seating area that is covered, green, and has heat lamps. Definitely a good place to host a birthday party for 8-14 friends.

Love it here. Really nice friendly service, good food and drinks at a decent price. Love the sangria and the pork tacos, and the chips and guacamole are must!

A bustling, casual, slightly crowded Mexican restaurant with very friendly people and great food. We arrived before our reservation time and the hostess was very accommodating and seated us right away. We had margaritas, guacamole enchiladas verdes, and cochinita pibil (braised pork), and bread pudding for dessert. It was all fantastic, maybe particularly the pork and the bread pudding. Highest recommendation.
