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.
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.
Picante does not disappoint. It is a simple place, you order at the counter and take your number and wait for one of the staff to bring your meal. A short efficient wait. The food is simply Mexican, clean, fresh, healthy, and satisfying. For the prices you can't beat Picante for a terrific meal that is far above your basic burrito/taco joint.
All the reviews are dead on. Great place. The chips are home made and crunch; salsa is great (I like the green salsa). My friend loves the chicken sandwich. Sundays they have a nice brunch and mexican hot chocolate.
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.
