Shown to our table by a girl who didn't speak or smile. It was like we were bothering her. Ordered a Cosmo & it was made with Tequila. Told the waiter & he brought back the same drink &.said it was made with vodka. I told him to keep it. I know the difference between tequila & vodka. Ordered tacos... More

Service is good, food is ok, but would be nicer with a little more care taken over presentation. Perfect for a quick family dinner or at sit and watch the world go by.

The food is good, but I have had better. Good seafood enchiladas. Nice atmosphere on Main Street in Pleasanton. You can walk around town after you are done eating. It also has patio dining.

I had not checked Tripadvisor before going here otherwise I probably would not have but thought it was much better than the grind reviews suggest. I had fish tacos which tasted fresh and were quite good. My margarita was plenty strong and also tasty. Service was average but location nice. Maybe they have new management or something because it was... More

Ate here twice, Very good Mexican food. Nice servers. Strong drinks. Outdoor patio in front. Towards the high end price wise but not unreasonable.

Best huevos rancheros in the area. Nice patio. Great service. Street scene is fun to watch people go by. I wish the motorcycle guys could afford a muffler!

The food is all bought in, nothing fresh here...all comes out of cans, bags, and boxes. The food all tastes the same...tasteless, bland and just gross....a runny pile of red slop with nuked cheese on top. How does this place stay in business???

I had the snapper tostadas, they were not very good, the best part was the avocado on top. It was like eating chopped up leftovers and there was no beans or cheese on them. So I ordered a side of beans to go with it so I could mix it up to get it to stay on the fork. The... More

Had lunch at Alberto's on a weekday. We got there and the restaurant was almost empty. We were seated promptly and the waiter, Jorge, brought the chips and salsa, then disappeared. The bartender brought draft beer and my wife's Cadillac margarita which was to her liking. The waiter finally reappeared and took our order. The popular tostada was quite good,... More
