Salsa

Their salsa is really good. There are two bartenders that are really on top of things. Then there was a waiter that tends to do very well at his job.

As a local, I love coming to La Piñata, where I enjoy both the restaurant and bar area. The food is always tasty and the service has always been pleasant. I especially enjoy their tacos, quesadillas, fajitas and burritos. You can't beat their Happy Hour (I will admit it's a bummer that they shortened the happy hours once the new... More

It's been said before, but the biggest issues are the limited parking and the wait time for dinner. Once you make the effort and you get seated - then you're in for first-class Mexican food from an extensive menu. We ate as a group of 20 college students and we ordered 16 different selections with chips, dip and drinks. Every... More

Be prepared fork a wait when you go. Now that Kaiser has opened up across the street it isa even worse. However, it is the best perhaps the best Mexican food in San Leandro. It has been there a LONG time and it is consistently good. It could use an updating and the parking is poor too.

La Piñata has an incredible following and you should arrive early. No matter what time you arrive the food is very authentic and incredibly tasty. I've stopped by for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.

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

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
