Recently, I had business in San Leandro, and after getting lost for a while (thanks a lot, FedEx, for the lousy directions), I was hungry...so I asked a local, solamente en espanol (only in Spanish), "donde hay un restaurante Mejicana authentica?" (Where is an authentic Mexican restaurant?) He told me that there was one on 14th Street, about four or... More

Super quesdilla is out of this world! Wrapped like a burrito, juicy and very satisfying. Burritos are good but dry if you don't like sour cream. Tortilla chips are delicious especially with guacamole.

I was out visiting a friend for the weekend and she insisted we have dinner at this place. I had the meat plate (chicken) and the food was delicious! My meal was a little pricey but once I saw the portion size, it was worth the price even though I couldn't finish my entire meal. Very good authentic mexican food.

One of my "go to" places in San Leandro. They actually have 3 locations and the food varies from one to the other. Generous portions of better than average Mexican food. Great salsa bar. My only negative is their sub par guacamole.

Good service and generous portions. My favorite: tacos de lengua (tongue tacos) but carnitas and al pastor are also very good, served on double tortillas. Chips and salsas are complimentary, very tasty and fresh. Definitely the best Mexican spot in Downton San Leandro.

Always busy but always get your food quickly. This is one of the go to spots for burritos in downtown San Leandro. Always good to bring one of these burritos to the A's or Raiders game. Burritos are huge and can't be eaten in one sitting. They do offer other Mexican food as well but lost come for the burritos.... More

It was a Friday around 6 p. m. And there were these two gentlemen playing the guitar and singing beautiful Mexican lyrics. I was amazed. The place was large with lots of eating space. Clean and they clear the tables and wipe them down after someone gets up. You order your food and you are given a number, so you... More

I called in a order of burritos and they hit out of the park. Not only did they get the order right,they added chips and salsa. I gave them my name and they added a few other things. Good customer service.

The latin food is fresh and tastes delicious. The service is wonderful and the place is maintained clean. The prices are reasonable. We've patronized this restaurant several times and have always been pleased.
