One of my "go to" places in San Leandro. They actually have 3 locations and the food varies from one to the other. Generous portions of better than average Mexican food. Great salsa bar. My only negative is their sub par guacamole.

Good service and generous portions. My favorite: tacos de lengua (tongue tacos) but carnitas and al pastor are also very good, served on double tortillas. Chips and salsas are complimentary, very tasty and fresh. Definitely the best Mexican spot in Downton San Leandro.

Always busy but always get your food quickly. This is one of the go to spots for burritos in downtown San Leandro. Always good to bring one of these burritos to the A's or Raiders game. Burritos are huge and can't be eaten in one sitting. They do offer other Mexican food as well but lost come for the burritos.... More

It was a Friday around 6 p. m. And there were these two gentlemen playing the guitar and singing beautiful Mexican lyrics. I was amazed. The place was large with lots of eating space. Clean and they clear the tables and wipe them down after someone gets up. You order your food and you are given a number, so you... More

I called in a order of burritos and they hit out of the park. Not only did they get the order right,they added chips and salsa. I gave them my name and they added a few other things. Good customer service.

The latin food is fresh and tastes delicious. The service is wonderful and the place is maintained clean. The prices are reasonable. We've patronized this restaurant several times and have always been pleased.

I don't typically order Mexican, but when I do I expect it to be close to authentic as possible. This is one of those tasty, authentic and non Tex Mex restaurants. That said - it's also very popular. Please make sure when you place a phone order that you are ordering from the establishment that you think is your target... More

San Leandro's go-to place for basic burritos, tacos, etc. Very good salsa bar (love the potatoes in the pickled carrot dish). When the kids come home to visit, they almost always insist on a meal at Los Pericos. Great prices too.

If you're looking for fast, cheap (and great) food, this is the place. A classic California taqueria that serves great food for little money.
