Reviews for Tacubaya

Quite simply the finest Mexican food in all of Northern California. I can't remember having a better taco anywhere... and terrific portions, too! The beef lengua is so perfectly juicy and tender, my mouth waters just thinking about it. I dearly hope that the coronavirus pandemic has not ruined the business and that they will be back and sizzling again soon!

Imagine my surprise....there was a fabulous authentic restaurant on Telegraph named Dona Tomas...and here was signage stating that Tacubaya is Dona Tomas' taco bar!!!! My expectations were through the roof. OMG, what a crushing disappointment. This is Mexican food for Americans. Not one iota of authentic Mexican flavor, a confusion of quantity with quality, priced for the neighborhood rents but not for tacos, tomales, and such. Even the presentation was sloppy and unappealing....read full review

It's good, but very very expensive for what you get. I ordered a small sope for breakfast, added an egg and it was $12 for a appetizer size portion. There are so many Mexican places in the area, I would pick a different one. They do have happy hour specials which are nice.
