Huevos Rancheros

A group of us had a late lunch, around 3:30PM. The order taking was a little slow either due to a shift change or a very busy waitress. However, the food was worth waiting for. I had the huevos rancheros. That is, I had sunny side up eggs on a tortilla, covered with jack cheese, a mild sauce... read more

This was the first place I stopped after arriving in Oakland I was so hungry. The restaurant's decor has a mexican feel to it. It was after the lunch hour so it was not very crowded. The huge menu made it a little hard to decide on what to order. They immediately bought out chips and salsa and I really... More

Ordered to go, the deep fried snapper dish . The place was packed and parking full but eventually found a spot when a car pulled out....perfect timing! Call ahead. Yvette, who took my to go order, was friendly and knowledgeable. She explained the dish comes with Spanish rice, refried beans with cheese on top, tortilla chips, salsa, and corn or... More

The huevos rancheros were excellent-fresh & hot-but the service was non existent-stood at entryway for eternity-no one to greet me-then when I wad seated waited again to order & thought I would never get the check after eating-and this wasvwhen it hadn't been busy-don't go unless you have a lot of time on your hands!

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

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.

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.
