Get up to speed here:
So here’s the old sign, from three months ago…
And here’s how things stand today:
See that? The notice about the 15% surcharge is gone.
So what’s up with that? Oh, our poor tourists are supposed to find out when and if they scrutineer their receipt after they’ve already been charged?
WTF to that. I mean, is this kosher, Bouboule?
So that’s my beef.
I’ll note that the printed receipts now just say “15% surcharge,” which is a big improvement over any reference to taxes, which could get you in big big twubble with our big big CA State BOE.
Let’s see, what else… oh, our tourists fucking hate this BS. Take a look:
Stale food. Added 15% surcharge over the posted prices. Rude staff.
Dishonest pricing with a bogus 15% surcharge. They should add this to the stated price of food instead of adding this to the bill.
Fundamentally dishonest. Their menu quotes a price, then sales tax, and then a surcharge of 15% – and no tip worthy service. Plus, why 15% of the sales tax?
Mucho rippo offo!!! Food was mediocre at best. And to add insult to injury they add an extra 15% surcharge?!?! Six tiny Tacos, a small basket of nachos, a kids quesadilla and a carne sandwich for over $80 is obscene!!!
Are some street tacos for happy hour! They seem to nickel and dime you, on top of adding a 15% surcharge to every order (they don’t accept tips), which it thought was interesting.
Food was decent, disappointed with the customer service. There was no explanation about the 15% surcharge until after she swiped our card, a heads up would have been nice.
If you’re willing to spend $40+ for chips and salsa, tacos and a bean burrito, this is the place for you.
Illegal labeling practice and should be shut down! The restaurant illegally labels “tips” as part of taxes on the receipt and enforces customers to pay tips. When I asked the staff why the taxes are so high (23%) out of the total bill, her answer was ” we consolidate city, state and surcharge taxes into one and it shows as taxes on the receipt”. I replied:” the surcharge is tips in this case?” She said yes. The question is how could tips be labeled as taxes? Absolutely sneaky! Absolutely illegal!
Mijita – San Francisco, CA, United States. Illegal labeling practice and should be shut down! The restaurant illegally labels “tips” as part of taxes on the receipt.
The 15% surcharge is absolutely absurd. Almost an entire extra $5 for tax and bs fees. Future patrons beware.
We just wanted to sit out in the sun and enjoy some kind of food. I didn’t know about the 15% surcharge tax they tack on, in addition to the regular tax till I looked at my bill! My tortilla soup for $8.50 turned out to be $10.83. I wouldn’t bitch so much if the soup was good. Which it wasn’t. Lukewarm and more like a stew. There were carrots in there. yuck. I won’t be back. Plus all those damn pigeons outside picking at leftovers. Can people please read the fricken signs to bus your own dishes? Jesus! Not Mjjita’s fault but still .. I am just irritated.
Beware!! A 15% Surcharge?? when asked about what the charge was for the cashier said it was their tip. TIP?? really!? Yeah it’s already over priced and not that great; and they’re charging this ridiculous 15% charge? yeah, straight bananas. I didn’t even realize the charge since the cashier didn’t give me the receipt until my friend noticed it on her order. (He was too busy trying to fix the paper on the machine). Fool me once and that’s enough, not worth coming back.
Pretty bad food (bland and tiny portions) for about 2x the cost of the fantastic Mexican food found elsewhere in the city. Then again, this restaurant probably gets enough business from tourists that accountability for their bad food doesn’t matter because repeat business is not common. Oh, and LOL: 15% surcharge “to help with employer’s rising costs”? That is just embarrassing for so many reasons. Go elsewhere.
So IDK, man.
Hey, are there any other businesses at the Ferry Building with a low low 2.5 star Yelp rating?
