Mexican
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.

    I reserved the patio for a large group for Sunday brunch and the staff were great about hosting us. The brunch portions are small but very affordable and delicious! Looking forward to hosting another event there.

    Always love this restaurant. The food is tasty and fresh, particularly enjoy the chilindrinas and the chicharrones. Plus the service is always exceptional. The vibe is casual and not too hipster which is great considering it's in the heart of the Mission district. Highly recommend!!!

    It's more 2.5 stars than 2.0, but they don't offer star fractions. While the service & setting was very nice, I felt the food was pretty uneventful for the Mission... especially for the price. Their house-made corn tortillas were good, but was surprised that their fish tacos used Tilapia. At $17 (for (3) tacos) a better choice of fish, vs. questionably farmed, would have made better sense. The other sad note was the chocolate "dipping" sauce for their churros. It was SOOOO watery & flavorless, a cup of coffee would have been a thicker & more flavorful alternative. Don't order it... unless you don't care about the quality of your hot chocolate. Better to just walk over to Dandelion. The guacamole & sangria weren't too bad, but again... just okay for the price. Perhaps there are other dishes that fair much better and that they're known for... but, sadly, the ones we had just don't inspire a return.

    Not sure about the great reviews. I found the food to be mediocre, at best. Nothing special in terms of taste, offerings or presentation. Great atmosphere and we were able to talk and have a conversation. Laissez-faire waiter who could seem to care less. We both had bad stomach problems after the meal, although this has no bearing on my review of the food. Just not good.

    It was fine... I wasn't really blown away by anything. I thought it was a little overpriced for what we got and the portions were small. We were still hungry after so we got burritos at a cheaper Mexican restaurant nearby.

    I want to like this place, but there is so much great food in the city I would rather go somewhere else. The food isn't bad, but it could use more seasoning (salt while cooking), both in the guac, the entrees, and the rice/beans. The food is completely decent, but a bit pricey for what you get. The ambiance is a bit strange because when we went the place was largely empty, but a few solitary young children would eat alone at empty tables.

    We had a dinner date here last Friday. I made a reservation for 5:45pm, but showed up around 5:20pm. Thankfully they sat us early, and we were the only people in the restaurant. The decor is very welcoming. We ordered a carafe of agave margaritas. It seems they only have a beer and wine license as the margaritas did not taste at all like margaritas. For $32, it was a bit high for the taste. We had a handful of starters, as we couldn't decide a main course. We had the pork taquitos, the guacamole y tostadas, and finally the chicharrones with fresh tortillas. I've had so many taquitos in my life, I know a good one when I taste it...and these were FANTASTIC. The guac was about a 7.5 on a scale of 1-10. It needed lots of salt. But the chicharrones were truly the star of the night. My husband was in heaven and we contemplated ordering a second round, but we wanted dessert. I ordered the flan and he ordered the Tres Leches cake with strawberries. We were very happy. We never order dessert, so we were very happy they had something we wanted and loved. Overall, this is a cute little upscale Mexican place. Good for a date night, and as a local Mission restaurant. I don't think we'll return with all the other places in the City - but then again, we never tried an entree. That Mole Chicken is calling my name!
