This is by far our favorite burrito/taco/tortas place anywhere, especially in the Bay Area. Better than any place in Berkeley or Oakland. We cook Mexican so we know this food well. It's the only place we will go to that we are sure will not disappoint. Every member of our family feels this way. The meats are all fresh and... More

This place is always busy and I always believe it's a pretty good sign if the folks of that culture are eating there. Everything is made fresh, right in front of you..even their juices. I usually only eat burritos, tacos, quesadillas, etc. This is definitely my "go-to" restaurant for Mexican cuisine. The fact that it is very close to where... More

Taqueria Los Pericos is a Mexican restaurant located in downtown San Leandro, not far from Davis Street. San Leandro is noted for having a number of "old school" shopping malls, such as Pelton Center (location of Taqueria Los Pericos), Palma Plaza (also on East 14th Street), and the Marina Mart shopping center located at the intersection Marina and Doolittle. Thus,... More

I have been eating here for 13 years and have never been disappointed. Fresh Made Chips and Salsa of many hues. Authentic Mexican Soups, Tortas and the best Burrito and Tacos for miles around. Eat in or take out and you will not be disappointed. I have introduced many people to this place and everyone likes it. They have a... More

I've been here a couple of times when visiting family. They have a good variety of food to choose from. They have a salsa bar which is neat because you get to choose from a big variety of salsas and whole peppers. The food is always good and they prepare it very fast. This is a perfect place to get...

Me and friends dined here yesterday to watch the Brasil v Germany World Cup game. Food was yummy and affordable. Free refills on fountain drinks helps especially since it felt like the AC was broken! VERY warm in the restaurant. Nice outdoor seating area.

It's been around here for a while. It has been really excellent and delicious for me and wife. We go here at least once a week! Make sure you go to the SMALLER Los Pericos on East 14th....their food is prepped in a smaller kitchen and has the BEST menudo on Saturdays and Sundays....ALL Tripa....no hominy. It's the Sunday stop... More

My friends eat here almost daily - try the breakfast burrito for an early-day start. The staff is friendly and they are generous with chips and their salsa bar. Food is solid and authentic. California is a great place to find Mexican cuisine! I enjoyed their tacos and burritos and the orchata is not bad either.

Much better than a chain restaurant - offers a lot of tasty choices for very reasonable prices. You would not find this place unless you are looking for it or taken there by someone in the know. Surprisingly they offer several vegetarian options and of course lots of normal mexican food.
