Not the best. Another melted cheese plate. For so many Mexicans in the area, why can't we do better? Go to Oakland for real Mexican.

Besides the usual tacos and enchiladas found in every California taqueria, Los Mocajetes serves a number of dishes not found on the generic menu such as stews, egg dishes, and seafood. The setting is an ugly strip mall, and the café is plain, but the...More

This is where we go when we want chicken soup and we're too tired, or sick. to make it. My wife gets the Chicken Tortilla and I get the Chicken Vegetable. The Seafood Molcajetes look really good to, but I've never tried them.
