        1. re: Mission

          With Taqueria El Farolito across the street are we sure that Taqueria Guadalajera is even the best on the block?

        2. The carnitas at El Balazo on Marin St (in the back of the carwash) are great, my favorite carnitas in SF.

          1. Carnitas Uruapan in Chicago is my favorite. In San Francisco, I like El Taco Loco #2, El Metate, and La Taqueria. La Palma is great for carnitas in bulk.

            Is this Guadalajara related to the Guadalajara on 24th St.? I have not been to the place on Mission, but the one on 24th does have very good carnitas, they have a generous fat content and crisp them up a lot.
