Their meats are not dry and over cooked like many Mexican restaurants that I have visited. I usually pay with cash so that I do not have to deal with the extra added 15% and up tips tissue with credit card charges. There is a tip jar at the counter. I like their Tortilla soap, pork or beef soft tacos.... More

I used to go to Cancun with some of my colleagues after work on a fairly regular basis, and also for an easy dinner or lunch with my wife from time to time. It was a convenient and quick stop before or after a play in downtown Berkeley. For some reason, I/we stopped going there about two or three years... More

Dropped by for a quick soft taco on the way to the Landmark Cinema and what a surprise! Two corn tortillas with a load of chicken chile verde and a huge amount of tortilla chips for $5.05. An add on is the fantastic cold table with every kind of salsa one can imagine. Very fast service by really nice staff.... More

We visited this restaurant and was immediately blown away by everything. The ambiance is great. Their is no wait staff, however the menu is available at the counter after you enter the door and at the cashiers. Upon approaching the cashier, first you receive a buzzer so you can return to pick up your meal. The signage is very well... More

Went for lunch with two friends and LOVED everything about this place! First of all, they use fresh, non-GMO ingredients. Everything was made to order and tasted fantastic. We all loved what we ordered. Quick, reasonably priced and healthy, tasty food! What's not to love? I was really sad that I was only in Berkeley for a few hours because... More

I really liked this place. It had a good atmosphere, and I like the fact that everything is organic. I ordered Taco with beef, and my husband quesedilla with beef. It was so delicious, I had to order one more Taco. And all the different salsas they have are so good. We didn't wait for a long time either to... More

Love the food especially the 12 salsas that are fresh every day! A lot of the ingredients are grown on their own organic farm. A word of warning - if you go after 7pm, there are frequently out of the tomatillo salsa (which is the single best reason to go!)

Love the fresh salsa bar. Food was quick and tasted quite fresh. Nice location, close to campus. As always, parking not easy.

I'm not even a huge fan of salsa, but I enjoyed having a wide range to choose from. The burrito was smaller than I expected from what my friends had said; still, it was delicious.
