I worked off of 4th Street in Berkeley for a time and found Tacubaya. I must've consumed my weight in their tacos de pescado and guacamole on a monthly basis. The large pieces of deliciously battered pollock, spicy aioli and crisp cabbage was an absolute...More

My favorite dishes: The BEST Sopa de Tortilla, Camote which is puréed sweet potatoes (seasonal) and Sope de Chorizo y Papas (with Chorizo and Potatoes). I feel these dishes are my “happy meal”. Of course I don’t eat all three at the same time but...More

It was a rainy day and we were craving tortilla soup. The soup was rich and flavorful but fairly expensive for a place that you order at the counter and then they bring it to you. We also ordered Mexican hot chocolate that wasn’t hot...More

Visited with friends for a late lunch. Good variety on the menu, and some interesting drink options. Service was friendly and fairly fast. Dog friendly outside, and lots of shops nearby to explore.

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!

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.

An unassuming Mexican type restaurant where you order at the counter and a waiter brings the food to the table. Dishes vary in quality, between 2 and 4 stars. Seating is somewhat on the rough side, but hey, you can't have everything, and considering the...More

You don't find fresh homemade tortillas too often. Small cafeteria style restaurant with a very good menu. Daily reasonable specials. I'm always a fan of being able to see your food being cooked and you can actually sit at the bar which faces the kitchen....More
