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.

    Best chilaquiles ever. Also, they will make you a michelada even though it's not on the menu.

  • Hailey C. on 05/05/13

    The enchiladas are ridiculous. The mole is absolutely on point.

  • Ethan I. on 06/02/12

    BRUNCH TIME! Sat and Sun 930-230

    El Matador - a margarita of sorts with jalapeño -- both cold AND hot...yum!
