Picante Cocina Mexicana
Picante celebrates the regional flavors, traditions and artistry of Mexico. Our food is made from scratch and served quickly in a place that is as affordable as it is friendly. Our large dining room has ample room to accommodate your large group, or you can relax and enjoy a margarita on our tropical garden patio.
Picante serves up great food and very reasonable prices in a casual, fun atmosphere. The weekend bunch food is great if you like eggs in your Mexican cuisine. And pretty much anything with the hand-made corn tortillas is great. Also great for kids.
This place is always packed. You'll wait in a long line to order and MAYBE get a table before you actually have plates of food in your hands. But with those shortcomings, the food is quite good. The place is always very attractive, but the masses of people standing in line and along walls detract somewhat from the ambiance.
I love the food here. And it's fast. You can tell they get a lot of traffic...but the wait is not super long. Really really tasty grilled chicken. If I'm passing Berkeley on my way somewhere, I'll usually stop for dinner or lunch.
