Authentic food production and pretty nice setting with a few outside tables. Ordered steak tacos with black beans and found it very satisfying quality and quantity. You will like the salsa fridge which had four different salsa sauce styles, just go to the fridge and...More

This Mexican restaurant is consistent and wonderful. It is especially busy on week-ends, after soccer games and other family activities. They offer outside seating for nice weather days and evenings, as well as authentic delicious, something-for-everyone fare. They even have a bar with a full...More

The food may become boring if you go too often. But after a while you may miss it. Although the menu does not seem to change, the choices are good. Perhaps because they don't change. Try their Cesar salad or, better, the cocinita peril (I...More

A colleague who grew up in Berkeley suggested three of us meet there for a business lunch. I had never been. It's almost a cafeteria style as you order first and then the waiter brings your food to your table. I had the fish tacos...More

Great food. Much more authentic than Taco Bell. Fast service - A customer waits in a line for maybe 10-15 minutes, pays for the food, sits down. the food arrives quickly.

Setting: Directly on 6th street. It is Mexican with a somehow fastfoodish feel. Your order at a counter and they bring the food. It starts all with Totopos (well Nachos) until your order arrives. Parking is on 6th street and is relatively easy. Food: tortillas...More

The food is well prepared but generally on the milder side. Refrigerated squirt bottles of 3 different heat sauces are available but like needing to add a healthy dose of black pepper to your food the end result is not quite the same as if...More

Picante is pretty casual for a rehearsal dinner, but it may be just what you want, if you've been there and are familiar with the format. I'd second the recommendation of phoning ahead so they could, potentially, block off... More
