You walk up to the counter, order, find a seat and wait for the food to be brought to you. The food was quite good - everyone at my table liked what they got - and the portion size was large. Nice outdoor balcony seating and a lot of room indoors for large parties. The negatives is that you need... More

I went there with my son after a CAL football game. It was raining and we just wanted something to eat before heading home on BART. Poor choice. My food was cold and not much flavor. I ordered fajitas and was brought 3 cold chicken tacos with everything. I was tired cold and wet so I just choked it down... More

For a quick bite before going to a Zellerbach performance, Cafe Durant is just fine. My chicken ceasar serve in a tortilla shell and my wife's mole were both very good, but not memorable.

This is a great place that is kind of hidden. I didn't realize it was there until one of my buddies showed me where it was. But the enchiladas here are awesome. Didn't agree with my stomach too well but it was worth it. Will be back to try some other dishes soon.

I visited Berkeley at the end of 2010. I realise that was a bit ago, however I have to write about this excellent eatery in Berkeley. Most mornings before heading out to San Francisco me and my partner would visit for breakfast. The choice is excellent. Traditional Mexican fare. I remember I had huevos rancheros. Rice, fresh veg, spicy salsa... More
