Topping the current raft of slabwagons in this area, San Pancho's posts up daily along the east side of Bayshore and delivers heavily mustachioed results. (And it's not the only orange-and-black truck along this stretch — also see comparatively weak Giant Burrito.) Staff is friendly, breakfast is served all damn day, and bacon dogs are on offer. Really, what's not to like? Closed evenings and Sundays. Cash only.

Imagine if the amiable lady inside the San Pancho's truck had not wrongly instructed Mister Slabmaker Fella to include sour cream in this burrito of considerable girth. Wrapped in a meanly grilled tortilla and only mildly unwieldy given its stocky dimensions, San Pancho's debut on our Mustache Chart was wisely mixed, admirably flavorful, and driven to greatness by all-melted cheese (and a hell of a lot of it). Spice-tension was ever-present but never particularly prominent throughout, and the whole hot mess was well-sauced, with a full complement of veggie action — pico de gallo, bitchin' guacamole, jalapeño — demanding a nine-mustache salute. Seemed like the burrito could have done with a bit more chicken, and the beans that purported to be refrieds really turned out to be whole pintos...but other than that and the unfortunate/unwanted inclusion of sour cream (which thankfully only scuzzed a small handful of bites, but still earned a single-mustache intangibility demerit), we had no truck with this truck's otherwise strong burritowork.
