This is the best Mexican food in the East Bay.
We love love love this restaurant - not only for dining in and take out but they have excellent catering that we have used many times. The chicken is especially out of this world in anything they put it in. It is very informal, great for kids.
If you cater - order about 2/3 of what you think you might need - the portions are very very big and they do take requests (like vegetarian specific changes). It has always been a big hit and very very affordable.
Too Much Lime!. We tried their chicken quesedilla, bean/ cheese burrito, chicken nacho and carne asada burrito. EVERYTHING tasted like lime!! even the salsa was overly tainted with the flavor!! My bean and cheese burrito tasted like it.. it was too much. It made the food very unappealing, we ended up trashing it and going to a different restaurant. Not only was the food terrible, but the service was even more so! We stood in a line like cattle, there is no sign showing you where to start, so we had 2 groups of people cut in front of us. The girl that helped us was so extremely rude I was practically climbing over the glass to .... well we won't get into it, but it was TERRIBLE customer service. They are extremely over-priced for the lack of flavor and lack of service. I would NOT recommend this restaurant/cattle ranch to anyone.
