Rincon Peruano [San Francisco]

Anyone ever eaten here? On 26th Street at Mission. What do you think?
I am peruvian so bias about this place.. it is great food for a great value... Saturday breakfast is popular and hearty (peruvian tamales, pan con chicharron and empanadas)... For lunch/dinner I recommend the apanado (similar to wiener schnitzel); arroz chaufa (peruvian version of beef fried rice - more spices added). The Papa rellena is a nice selection if yuo are looking for something small on the go... Local sodas such as Inca Kola and Kola Inglesa probably much sweeter if not used to. Try the fruit juice of the day. Also try the alfajores for dessert. Daily specials are always a good bet!
I love San Francisco--no matter how much I've driven or walked around a neighborhood, I sometimes spot something I never knew was there. I spotted Rincon Peruano recently while driving by. I'm wondering if anyone has been recently. Looked like strictly takeout, and I wonder if they have moved since the message above places it at 26th & Mission. It's now on 26th between Capp and Lilac. Some Yelp reviews, if they are allowed:
PS: Found a kind of temp website with a menu, which says they've been around for 10 years. Don't know when the website was created, though. Looks like it isn't just takeout, either.
PPS: Didn't see the earlier Peruvian thread above until now. I guess I will have to bite the yucca and go try this place.
