I had a meeting in Oakland last week and while walking down Grand st, I happened to walk into this restaurant to get a bite to eat. All I can say is "Wow", I am Latin and this is the most flavor-able Mexican style food I have had since my Aunt passed. The lady at the counter I believe is... More

Great service, warm yet simple atmosphere, delicious food, very large portions, and great prices, what more could I say ? We are going back tonight, it is... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Oakland and my kids love it as well. Connie and her staff are warm and friendly and the food is excellent. The tortilla soup is amazing and the burritos are so good! I've even had Connie cater a party at my house. Don't miss it!

Today we dined in at the small and quiet Grand Avenue Mexican dining place called Connie's Cantina----- named this as she is the chief Cook/owner and server. Everything in this restaurant is home made and delicious. We ordered the Connie's Burrito Especial......The mega burrito is one that comes with everything but the kitchen sink and can be customized for all... More

Stopped in with family, who live nearby. Really enjoyed the enchiladas. Connie was great and helpful with ordering. Others in the group also enjoyed the quesadilla. The back patio really is quite peaceful in the heart a busy commercial district. I will definitely go again when visiting Oakland. Connie was all alone when we arrived which impacted the service, but... More

I am new to Connie's and have thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and delicious food. Connie is there to walk you through the menu, or as we have done, we let Connie know what tastes we like best and then ask her to make us something delicious . . . and she always does! Nice and peaceful back patio where we've... More

As a savvy world traveler, I have dined all over. Mexican is among my periodic favourites, but never have I tasted an Enchilada like the one Connie prepared. My friend Walter was host for this excursion. He confirmed the marvellous little restaurant as the best of its kind in the Bay Area. Certainly worth a visit. Connie herself is chef,... More

It certainly can't be the food. Worst Mexican I have ever eaten. I think she sent out to Taco Bell for our order. I live in the neighborhood and have wondered for years how she stays in business.

I eat at Connie's regularly. Her food is wonderful. As Taxesgal said, the Super Burrito will feed several people. The Mexican pizza is to die for. But mainly, experience Connie herself, who is just warm and wonderful and fun. NOTE: she has a nice outside dining area out back if the weather is warm!
