This is a decent Mexican restaurant and they are relentless on the complementary tortilla chips. I especially like their Chicken Soup, a brothy but loaded soup that is great for one of those cold Bay Area days.

Los Molcajetes is one of my local favorites for Mexican food. The chips and salsa are fresh as are the ingredients in their food.

My friend and I ate at Los Molcajetes for the first time this evening. Upon walking in the door we saw the the wide variety of Mexian beers and sodas in their display cases. We were promply invited to sit where we wanted, and a waiter quickly dropped by to give us menus and get us started with something to... More
