It's great to visit CA where one can get awesome Mexican food almost everywhere. Had the carne asada tacos and they were soo good. I also had some veggie ones and they were just as good. Fun atmosphere and quick service.

I will never go there. The portions are small we ordered a few food and still came out hungry. It is also expensive for the food they offer. Do not go there if you are hungry!!

Ate at Tacubaya during a stay in Berkeley. Hotel staff reccomended it. Food was fresh and service was fast. It is an order at counter/staff brings your order to your table type restuarant. Not fancy but excellent food for an excellent price!
