“Great fish tacos”
Review of Picante Taqueria

Picante Taqueria
Ranked #92 of 240 Restaurants in San Rafael
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Located on Bellam Blvd next to Mi Pueblo, this low key Mexican restaurant has good food and very reasonable prices. I always order the fish tacos. How can you go wrong with two tacos for under $4? Add a side order of rice and beans for $1.60 and it is a filling meal.
Order at the counter and your food is ready within minutes. Sit next to the windows and look out on the community garden or watch fútbol on the two large screen TVs.

I worked in the eastern LA suburbs and Orange County for many years, and loved to find mom and pop Mexican spots serving good home style food. Picante is one of those. Located at the edge of San Rafael's Canal District, it draws a diverse crowd from both the immediate community and throughout Central Marin--most of whom are regulars. I recommend anything made with carnitas, accompanied by the tomatillo hot sauce. Grilled chicken and shrimp are quite good as well. Good selection of Mexican beer on tap and in bottles.
