Lunch

Besides the fact that the chips that came with the guacamole were extremely hard, the food was very good. This restaurant is in a nice outdoor mall and the outside dining part is nice.

I will never go there. The portions are small we ordered a few food and still came out hungry. It is also expensive for the food they offer. Do not go there if you are hungry!!

We have been coming here for lunch for years because the food is excellent and authentic. Always busy, usually a fast turnover of tables. You order at the counter then pay and take a table number. Minutes later you food arrives. They have the best guacamole with chips and we always start with that. Plenty for a couple enough to... More

Delightful place, we have usually had breakfast there, but today we tried lunch. Superb food, tacos with pulled pork was delightful. Chile Relleno was exceptionally good, just enough bite to it. We were able to seat outside and enjoy the local scene. One thing could be better,,,no beer outside. Need to find a way to change this.

We were walking at 4th Street at Berkeley, and when I saw the name "Tacubaya", I told my husband the name is a section of Mexico City, so the food has to be Mexican style, so we decided to have lunch here, and we were more than surprised starting with the decoration, of black and whites frames pictures of some...

Came in after some boat work at Berkeley Marine Center. Got 2 Tacos al Pastor, chips, salsa and a lemonade. Short wait and they being the food to you with a number flag. Flavorful food and just the right amount of spice. Thanks for a quick and delicious lunch!

Ate at Tacubaya during a stay in Berkeley. Hotel staff reccomended it. Food was fresh and service was fast. It is an order at counter/staff brings your order to your table type restuarant. Not fancy but excellent food for an excellent price!

Love the enchilada and fish tacos. We like to eat eat here every time we come to California. Very busy. Parking is a challenge. Food is worth it.

This restaurant is always busy- for a good reason. Breakfast is delicious - usually there are a few specials as well as a varied menu. Lunch includes crispy tacos, salads and tamales with amazing mole sauce. The employees are always cheerful and helpful. A table outside, child rellenos and an agua fresca- perfect lunch in Berkeley!
