I've been coming here for many many years they've always treated me like family and I loved the authentic Mexican food. They've always been consistent and the prices reasonable I only hope that the tr...ansplants gentrifiers do not spoil this great place that is a true mission District old school Mexican restaurant. Oh by the way I never ever go by somebody else's opinion especially if they only been here for a couple years and have a Euro palate if you know what i mean. Oh the Birra de horno is off the hook hehe. See More

Had a terrific breakfast with my twin daughters, wonderful meal that was perfectly served by our waiter, the owners Juan & Maria are wonderful by making their customers feel like family. Our breakfast... was exactly on time, hot (not warm) food and oh so good. All in all, a MUST!!! ..amazing variety of traditional Mexican cuisine � See More

Been eating at Gallardos since they opened at their old location. I always feel welcome and the food is great. The pozole is my all time favorite and it is available 7 days a week! This is truly a f...amily business and I wish them all the best! See More

Probably won't go back. Service lacking, food not that good, too pricey for what is served.

Great food, sometimes good service. My man loves to order a large serving of half munudo and half berria, the price they charge him depends on who our server is. Most times they charge him the same as... one large bowl... but when we get the short lady with the ponytail she charges $4 more WTH?? She's not very nice either. See More

Absolutely the best, most delicious, authentic Mexican food I have ever eaten in my life. And the owner even came out and struck up a conversation with me in English and with my best friend in Spanis...h. If you are ever in San Francisco and want *real* Mexican food, don't miss this place. See More

We where told that this place had wonderful service & good food we went on a Thursday, they only had one couple when we got there.
The only waiter was a short lady who at first was nice, but as soon a...s my daughter took her time on ordering her food she changed & was very nasty attitude very sarcastic. I let her know that as soon as my daughter would make up her mind I would let her know. She didn't like that. The food was ok it's from 4 order 2 where good the Posole & Carne asada, the torta de carne asada was swimming in Mayonnaise the Carne milanesa was very salty the Salad looked like it was sitting out on the counter all day !! I called the short lady with a ponytail over to ask her for a box & the bill she brings the box right away but the bill she had us wait 10 min. For it when she finaly came after I waved her down several times I asked her if the food was on her since it seemed she didn't want to change us.
She goes on to say well if you would have asked for the bill I would have brought it over right away. I let her know I asked for it when I asked for the box. She said I didn't hear you. That's funny because the 1st thing I asked for was the bill then the box. I feel she was getting back at us because my daughter took her time to order her food !! Never again will we end up going to this place this lady needs an Attitude Change big time.

Good food, good service, very clean and friendly people. What else does one expect from a local small Mexican restaurants. The Mexican movie star posters are very cool.

Okay food, both both had to wait a while for a menu and then for the check -- 15 minutesish before I gave up and paid at the counter -- there was people sat and served during that time.

UPDATE 9/27/2016
As stated below, I originally had some times that I was disappointed here, BUT - Gallardos has redeemed themselves in my book! As mentioned below the manager offered me a free meal, s...o I gave it another shot. The next time I went in I didn't even need to show the msg from the Mgr., they knew it was me and didn't charge me, and apologized. So few places with service like that!
I've been back several times since, and have been happy with the food and the warm, friendly service.

(Original post)
So... I went there shortly after they opened - and both items I asked for - that were on the menu - they were "out" of. Now, 6 months later, because some friends have told me how good it is, I went again. I wanted the chicken soup since I have a cold. Once again - they are "out". Sigh.... As nice as the place looks, I will not attempt ordering again

UPDATE 8/16/2016
Update.... I have been there again and have liked the food, but again today was disappointed- I ordered food to go but when I got home was sad to find I had been given the wrong thing....
Why? Even after I had clearly pointed to the item in the menu?!?

I msg'd the manager and promptly received a nice response. It included an offer for a complimentary lunch. I appreciate that and will give them another try! I've upgraded my "rating"
