“Great, moderately priced choice”

Molcajete Restaurant
Ranked #234 of 1,368 Restaurants in Oakland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 May 2017

Molcajete is doing many of the standard favorites.
They are also doing some pretty creative twists on some of them.
Much better than average Mexican food choices.
This is clearly a family driven restaurant.
Service is amazingly friendly, but occasionally distracted.
A very good choice in a moderate price range.

The food was great, REAL Mexican food, the portions were large and the price is fair. However, it was hot and tight. But well worth the visit and would have been a 5 if it had been cooler.

Note; this is cash only establishment

At my last job we frequently ordered food for board meetings. Fell in love with the mole and shrimp dishes are succulent. Small restaurant with big food.

I was on a road trip looking for something to eat and luckily all the other places was closed because we end up eating here! The service was amazing, the food was so fast we didn't even realize how many minutes we wait, and when we got the food... wow! flavor, presentation, price! from the coffee to the michelada and of course the meals! next time i visit San Fran, i will definitely will go to eat there

My friend and I visited Molcajete before hitting a show at the nearby Fox Theater. Authentic food at a reasonable price. We tried the tacos paseados (trio of meats) as well as one of their sizeable burritos. Good, flavorful food and friendly staff. No parking fee required on sundays. It's a small joint, so finding a table might be a challenge. Great food, glad we found this place.
