Quesobirria tacos are fire. Menudo and pazole can stand up against any I've ever had. Best Mexican food I've had in NorCal.

Good authentic mexican food. Sometimes the wait can be a bit long as they get busy, but its worth waiting for some comfort mexican food.

Ok best burrito in Richmond/San Pablo area.Bought myself a surf n turf and it did not disappoint had the first bite sauce less and the asada actually has great flavor, it was a even bite with each ingredient in every bite, not sure if the ingredients are mixed but the shrimp were also great and both together complimented each other well. Both salsas were great, although the red one is a bit spicier. I think I could have ate 2 in on sitting, oh yeah patio seating is available.

One of my favorite places when I'm in the area. Great quality meat. Good choices too and complementary chips and salsa. Only cons: expensive and sometimes the chips are stark but I still continue to come here

If you like tacos this is the place to go, they have a pretty big menu but tacos is my favorite thing in their menu, they are nice friendly and very clean, totally a good spot for a delicious lunch. They take credit cards/debit cards and cash so it's super convenient

Amazing, the only place on our San Francisco vacation that we needed to go to twice and order enough for a 3rd meal.

This place is hands down the best during covid. Fresh food with authentic flavor. Tortillas fresh, chips are free with an order, and salsas come in variations. Always down for food here, for those vegetarians the burritos and tacos are great and review worth! Real food from real people. I'll be back soon!

Just picked up a tasty shrimp burrito. Lots of shrimp and fixings. Would have given 5 Stars but salsa opened in the bag and unfortunately made a slight mess. Otherwise, decent service and tasty burrito!Cheers

Place is pretty nice good size burritos, tasty tacos a little on the small side so would order extra (3) for those with an appetite. Their Jamaica drink was very tasty and really appreciated that they asked if I wanted ice or not and the Large size was nice! Will definitely be making this my local go to thus far. Also it was a fun, positive atmosphere- just when stopping in to pick up my order some good music came on and there was dancing and smiles in the kitchen:-)

I've probably tried every taqueria in the El Sobrante/Pinole/Hercules area, and hands down this is my favorite, though there are some good competitors. I'm not alone, because I often see Hispanic workers hitting this place at lunch or after work. It can get quite busy, so I try to hit it up between peak hours. It's also one of the few places anywhere in the East Bay that stays open past 9pm! I've tried just about everything on the menu, but when it comes to favorites, the chile verde (either as a burrito or dinner) or the al pastor tacos are my go-to items. The tacos in particular are the small street taco style, but piled high with meat and toppings (jalapenos, cilantro, salsa). Finally, it's the only place I get the horchata. In most restaurants it's a rather bland drink but here it tastes rich and full of flavor. That alone has brought me in more than once, especially on hot days, and I always get a medium or large because the small size would leave me craving more!
