Love Connie!

Been going here for years and Connie does an amazing job. She puts so much zest in her food. Connie's burrito must be a juicy 6 lbs. The meat inside is seasoned perfectly. Love her flautas as well. Always go see Connie if I'm under the weather for her delicious tortilla soup. She's also recently... read more

Connie's is always very good. She will cater to your particular tastes, whether extra spicy or mild. She is always pleasant and upbeat. The food is awesome - just like homemade!

I reviewed Connie's 2 years ago. Now I live full time in Mexico, and I sorely miss the wonderful flavors, dependable freshness and beautiful presentation from Connie. Was there on a vacation this week and she's exactly the same, just as I'd hoped. Go visit and become one of her family; that's how you'll feel the very first time.

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

Freshly arrived in the area, I was craving for Mexican food...I scouted the Web in search for the right place, and Connie's Cantina looked like it could be a match..And it was ! 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
