An unassuming Mexican type restaurant where you order at the counter and a waiter brings the food to the table. Dishes vary in quality, between 2 and 4 stars. Seating is somewhat on the rough side, but hey, you can't have everything, and considering the...More

You don't find fresh homemade tortillas too often. Small cafeteria style restaurant with a very good menu. Daily reasonable specials. I'm always a fan of being able to see your food being cooked and you can actually sit at the bar which faces the kitchen....More

Superb enchiladas, a good selection of Mexican beers, fresh chips and salsa, great tortilla soup. One of my favourite places for a quick lunch or early dinner while in Berkeley.

Cafeteria style, which is not a problem. Had chili relleno, which is my favorite. Batter dipped, swimming in salsa verde, only ok on the chilimeter. Cafe Olla not so good, grainy and lacking spunk. All in all, not great.

Flavors only average. Chicken taco fried, oil could have been better, it tasted a little old. Carne Asada, just ok.

Sit inside in the cold, but enjoy the sun outside when it's warm (and watch the Amtrak go by every 15 minutes). Love, love, love the tuna cerviche. Lots of delicious chunks of fresh avocado, tuna, nice medium hot sauce, served with their amazing freshly...More

Being Mexican food and not fine dining my first reaction is to compare with XoCo in Chicago and that is unfair. Food is good, nowhere as good, quick takeout and take a flag & we serve you on table service, not too bad. They served...More
