I knew in advance that my Groupon would not be honored on a Friday or Saturday, so we planned on going on a Sunday. We showed up with beers in hand and an appetite. We started with an order of nachos. For our meals, I...More

We've been to El Cerrito perhaps 20 times. The service has been excellent, and the food always a couple of notches above other local Mexican restaurants. They know how to flavor their food with herbs and spices. My only wish is that they have more...More

I found this place via Groupon and we loved it. I would definitely go back again. It has good food, service and it was not expensive. A must try.
