We've been frequenting La Pinata 2 since its opening. We used to go to the one in Hayward but its too small and crowded. La Pinata 2 is just as good with much more room to spread out, a fantastic bar and a nice dining area. In general, the service is great. They do a buffet on Sundays which is... More

We love coming to La Pinata #2. This is the best sit-down Mexican in town. (Not counting taquerias.) Get here early or be prepared for a wait. Fortunately you can wait in their full bar. My wife and I have become big fans of the Chicken Tlalpeno soup, which is huge and flavorful, with loads of fresh add-ins to put... More

The food was great, I cant remember the name of the entree we got but we were very pleased! The salsa and chips were good and everything was fresh!! The service wasn't good or bad but ok, we would eat here anytime:)

I rarely go to this restaurant because the floors are not kept very clean. I decided to see if it was one I would recommend to my professional friends at the new Kaiser across the street, and I would not. The food was decent (average Mexican restaurant fare), but the service was slow even in a half-full restaurant, and the... More

The food and the price is great. Sometimes the service is good and then sometimes it's bad. Try and not get out into the overflow room, there is no AC so it gets hot and stuffy pretty quick especially if you are with a large group of people. We had about 12 people I our group so they put us... More

The food is average and some waiting. Parking is poor but they have a back room for large groups. Have been to their other locations before but the quality at this one seems to be slipping. We had dinner but they also serve lunch and breakfast. Good place to eat if you have someone at Kaiser Hospital across the street.

I went to this place once before for a pick up order. It was on the weekend and the place was absolutely packed! I figured this place must be really good...or really cheap! Well, the food was just okay that time but I went back again about 2 months ago and ate inside. I had one of those combination plates... More

Each of the different La Pinata restaurants has a slightly different spread for breakfast buffet on Sundays. Their chilaquiles are good (both red and green), the revueltos con chorizo is good. The also have a good selection of other meats, like carnitas and fajita chicken.

Ordered specialities, as well as some of what you might call 'standard dishes'. All, including drinks were disappointing, especially the house special steak. The latter was over cooked, to include the shimp. The 'special' house seasoning was " absent". Won't be back.

Casual, family friendly, efficient service. Delicious food, quacamole especially tasty and fresh, server graciously accommodated a special request. Margaritas excellent, other drinks just average. (A huge plop of whipped cream on top of a frozen strawberry daiquiri??) Would definitely return when next in the area.
