Sorry to report this restaurant has closed. Great staff and good bar. My guess is their rent was raised to something astronomical.

8 of us only one finished his food, service slow and unmindful. Food very so so. Forgetful, had to ask more times. Hard to believe they opened so long.

This is the place we go when we want to skip all of the pretense and get bundles of food and big bowls of homemade soup. It's not for the dainty, it's just down and dirty family style.

They have recently remodeled and the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet with the same good food and service. Portion sizes are large and reasonably priced.

I grew up in Alameda, where on Park St., La Penca Azul is the Mexican restaurant to go to. Juanitas is always the runner up when the wait down the street is too long. This week, I was reminded why. There was an hour wait...More

Within 10 seconds of sitting down, menus were in front of us. Typically you want fairly quick, attentive service, but this was a bit abrupt. We ordered, talked for about 3 minutes and dinner was there. The food was adequate, although not spectacular. The room...More
