Mission serves one dessert: freshly fried churros with chocolate sauce for dipping. Mine were delicious, though on the heavy side, even by the standards of a fried dessert. Unbidden, I received a message from Adam Tilford apologizing for the heaviness — there had been a screwup with the batter in the kitchen. (I should mention that the Tilfords know me by sight.)

Mission pushes all the right trend buttons to be a smash hit, but it's this attention to detail — and the regret when their restaurants do not meet their own high standards — that have set the Tilford brothers apart at Tortillaria, Milagro and now Mission. There is a wait at Mission now because it is new and exciting. There will be a wait in the future because it is, simply, very good.

"Here, though, the one flaw in Mission's tacos becomes most apparent. The tortillas, not only made in-house but in a window visible to passersby, while delicious, are not strong enough to support so much filling. I had to eat this taco (and a few others) with a fork. Doubling up the tortillas, taqueria-style, would help."

YES!!!!! Thanks for pointing this out! Three trips to Mission Taco have been great EXCEPT that I've had to use forks EVERY TIME to eat a taco which is unacceptable.
