Fantastic Mexican food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We mostly visit for breakfast. Carne asada, rice & beans, fresh tortillas, chips & salsa. Chilaquiles are delicious. Service is always fast. & friendly. Reasonable prices.

We arrived in Oakland late, so dinner was later than normal - good to them for being open. I admit to being a Mexican food snob, so it is perhaps unfair of me to rate the restaurant "average". We enjoyed the food, and under the same circumstance would go back. But many other restaurants are equal in food taste and... More

We love the food at La Piñata, which has been here a long time. The Chicken Tlapeno Soup is my favorite and I could eat it every time here. Huge chunks of Roasted Chicken and loads of vegetables, cooked with Chipotle chilies. With Rice and Tortillas, and you have enough for two people. Also, try the huge Burritos, Tacos, Fried... More

This is one of San Leandro's popular restaurant and bar. It's so crowded on the weekends that the entire parking lot is full, so I went mid-week around 2:00 pm to avoid the wait. The burritos are freshly made. The hot salsa sauce with tortilla chips will burn your tongue and lips, but it's so good. What I like about... More

This is a very well run Mexican theme restaurant. Great service and authentic and fun food. The place had a great look and feel but my favorite part is the tequila bar in the back. Great place for meeting buddies or for a business lunch meeting. Love the Negra Modelo Micheladas!

La Pinata in San Leandro is pretty authentic northern Mexico food. The dishes are large, but so are the prices. Half dishes are probably enough for the normal sized person. The food has good flavor and the service is good

This place was perfect. It has a staid, quiet family side and a ROCKING bar scene. The parking is limited BUT there is plenty on the next street over, a 30 second walk. We saw people waiting in the parking lot for a space, still sitting in their cars by the time we parked and walked over. The food was... More

Good service...and tasty food. The salsa is excellent and the beer is cold. Can't say anything negative about this restaurant. I will be back again when I am in town.
