We went here for a family dinner. We were very disappointed when the cashier didn’t speak English & all of our food orders came out wrong. There’s nowhere to sit once you get your food. Horrible food & service!

wasn't sure what I was ordering. Crowded, so crowded the tables inside are kind of communal. Outside seating. Prices are good, but you order in a long queue and there is no way to ask questions. Food and drinks were great. But we left as...More

Very casual place, order at counter. Awesome food. Lots of variety, and it's all tasty. If you want beans & rice, you have to order them separately. The soup is particularly yummy.

Very good food with a very nice atmosphere. Kinda pricey and everything is sold separately. Indoor and outdoor seating but alcohol can only be consumed indoors.

Superb enchiladas, a good selection of Mexican beers, fresh chips and salsa, great tortilla soup. One of my favourite places for a quick lunch or early dinner while in Berkeley.

Cafeteria style, which is not a problem. Had chili relleno, which is my favorite. Batter dipped, swimming in salsa verde, only ok on the chilimeter. Cafe Olla not so good, grainy and lacking spunk. All in all, not great.

Flavors only average. Chicken taco fried, oil could have been better, it tasted a little old. Carne Asada, just ok.

Atmosphere: Order at counter, grab your number and find a table. Not a very comfortable setting with hard wooden seats or benches; seats can be hard to find if crowded. Food: When it's good, it's very good, which is too rare. It's over priced for...More
