Very light fare, although the most traditional I've had in a long time. Colorful place. Excellent service.

Located across from the Jack London Square multiplex theater, this gem serves some of the best Mexican food in the East Bay. Everything is homemade and based on the owner's parents recipes. The mole is incredible as are the corn tortillas, chilie verde and rellenos...More

Some of the best Mexican food I have had in a long time. Perfect balance of flavors and spiciness in the dishes. The flavors and spices used in the food are right on target. So good, I am craving more already.

Fresh take on South of the Border cuisine for very reasonable price and nice extras. Chips were fresh and salsas unique, not run of the mill. The chicken lime soup was fresh batch, light and subtly seasoned. Sesame crusted ahi tuna was excellent and very...More
