OK Main stream Mexican food. I was a bit disappointed. There were a couple of unusual items on the menu, but for the most part is was the usual fajitas, burritos, tacos, yada yada yada. The refried beans were so dry they were crusty. The outside seating was nice and the prices were reasonable..

The Prickly Pear is in the Blackhawk Plaza and was always one of my first picks for good Mexican food and tasty margaritas when I lived in the area. They have a nice outdoor patio, which is perfect on a hot east bay evening. Good friendly service. I really like their chicken nachos!

It's Cheers in Blackhawk, food is very good, service is great, and a fun vibe. They are very creative with the margaritas.

Had lunch @ Rodney Worth's Prickly Pear, Danville. Menu is extensive, should be choices to suit everyone's taste. Those who ordered Margaritas enjoyed the unusual preparations. Environment is very upscale and in the same location as the Blackhawk Auto Museum.

When we are in the mood for good Mexican food we always come to The Prickly Pear. They always treat us well and have great outdoor seating.

I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor while visiting family in the Walnut Creek, CA area. A wonderful outdoor patio on the plaza. Ordered Chile Relleno and Famosa burrito which could easily shared by two.

Prickly Pear replaced Coa and, like many in the Worth Restaurant Group, they come close, yet miss. In my opinion, all of the restaurants in the group are OK, but rarely more. The group has grown very rapidly in recent years and has had a lot of success. The cuisine, however, is not what I would call anything better than... More

Normally I love the Prickly Pear - the Chile Relleno on the regular menu is to die for. I went to a banquet event there and the taco/fajita buffet was very average.It was a disappointment because I really lime the food off the menu. The staff was friendly as always and despite it being a buffet event they actually provided... More

I really like this place. When the weather is good, the outdoor seating is the place to be. The pond and the occasional live music create the perfect atmosphere. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. There isn't much more that I could ask for.

We came here because the Little Pear restaurant was busy and it was a very hot day (106 degrees). It's inside a fancy mall so park by the Anthropology store and walk into the mall. This place was an oasis. The room is well decorated and welcoming. The windows had a close up view of the beautiful water fall feature... More
