SF Weekly's Description
Some of the best Mexican food anywhere is being served in the elegant rooms and on the pleasant, flower-lined patio of this unassuming storefront restaurant resting on a quiet block in Oakland. Using Niman Ranch meat and seasonal, organic produce, the kitchen turns out an array of wonderful dishes -- we love the sopa de lima (rich chicken soup), quesadillas, carnitas, and amazing corn pudding. There's an excellent selection of wines, beers, mezcals, and tequilas, but we especially enjoy the specialty cocktails.
Tips from foursquare
Local jewelry designer, Lauren Wolf, is a pro on traditional Mexican cuisine (seeing as she lived in Mexico!) She recommends Doña Tomás as one of 6 must-visit spots in Oakland! Learn more here!
El Matador - a margarita of sorts with jalapeño -- both cold AND hot...yum!
Sunday Brunch, drinks are so delicious...Try La Chela, serrano chile infused Mezcal! I mean...do you need to know the rest :-)
Their chicken enchiladas are AMAZING. They also own Tacubaya up on 4th Street in Berkeley.
Best chilaquiles ever. Also, they will make you a michelada even though it's not on the menu.
