We stopped on the way back from The City, and we will stop again next time. I really liked the chile verde and others in the party had great tacos and burritos. A few had chicken a few had beef and all was good.

Wednesday night is two dollar taco night. Baka fish, chorizo, and pork al pastor were excellent. Chicken was good. The other pork in adobo was good but a little dry. $3 beer on Wednesday and $4 sangria too.

We ate there a few times when visiting UC Berkeley, since it was right by our hotel. I'm not the most experienced/knowledgable in Mexican food, but both my fiancé and I enjoyed their food, especially the taco's. The classic taco with chorizo was my favourite!...More
