Hegenburger's Hamburger Restaurant is an independent burger joint that pleases every diner with the generous and delicious portions doled out along with crunchy lettuce and fries. The staff are a friendly and efficient bunch who go all out to ensure that you return a second time around for more. The prices are wallet-friendly too so make sure to stop by sometime if you are in Oakland's airport area.
This restaurant serves traditional "soul food" such as fried chicken, shrimp, jambalaya, and seafood. They are open daily for lunch and dinner.
For those craving delicious Mexican fare, head to El Paisa in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood. This casual family-run restaurant features a wide variety of savory dishes. Be sure to try their tacos, which come topped with grilled onion, jalapeno and cactus. The burritos are an excellent choice as well; be prepared though, as they are quite massive. Wash it all down with a homemade agua fresca!
This restaurant has a lovely interior that complements the cuisine it serves with earth colors, close-set tables and wooden beams along the high ceiling lend it a decidedly rustic feel. Calamari fritti, rack of lamb, penne with Italian sausage are some of the items that feature on the predominantly Italian-cum-Mediterranean menu. The staff is warm and friendly and there is a full bar, making this the perfect place for both a business lunch or a relaxing meal out with friends and family.
For gigantic burritos and a host of other delicious menu items, head to El Taco Zamorano. One of the best Mexican restaurants in Oakland, patrons will most definitely never leave hungry. Portions here are huge; the "super" burritos in particular are massive, so bring a friend and share, or save half of it for later. Prices are on the cheaper side, which makes this a popular dining spot indeed.
Mariscos La Costa features a delightful menu of Mexican treats including dollar tacos, as well as tostadas and burritos. They also place a special emphasis on seafood, and you can even get ceviche and fresh oysters on the half-shell here. Located in the Fruitvale area of Oakland (which, by the way, has no shortage of Mexican restaurants), Mariscos La Costa is a true gem.
El Farolito is a popular chain of Mexican restaurants in northern California. The most well-known are the ones in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, but the Oakland location, near the Fruitvale BART station, holds its own as well, and has the added bonus of a shorter wait time. Guests efficiently place their orders amidst the signature yellow decor. Everything on the menu is authentic and delicious, but the popular Super Burrito is clearly the star. They come gigantic, stuffed with whatever meat your heart desires.
This Mexican flag adorned mini-hacienda in Oakland's Fruitvale district has been a citywide favorite for years. Large portions of traditionally prepared Mexican dishes are served up out of the kitchen. Favorites like burritos, tacos, nachos, tortas and more come piled high with fillings like their carne asada, chorizo and their popular al pastor and some more daring yet still traditional ones like lengua (beef tongue) and cabeza (beef head). Make sure to try the wet al pastor burrito. San Jose also has a fair selection of seafood dishes like ceviche and shrimp cocktail. The large dining room is particularly good for large gatherings.
Horatio's is planned in an uncomplicated manner with a view naturally designed to please the eye. With its ocean front setting, this restaurant wins half the battle. The prawns, squids fresh from the ocean bed and tender steaks all hold the power to grasp you in a temporary trance. Facing the Pacific while dicing your steak and sipping Californian wine is a dream several of us yearn to earn. Yet all is not lost, as dreaming about the above is another solution and it'll never cost you any money!
El Novillo is hailed by many as the best taco truck in Oakland. Located in the parking lot of Guadalajara Restaurant, the burritos are the thing to order and are easily shareable by two. In addition to the standard meat options (marinated beef, pork, and chicken), they also offer lengua (beef tongue), cabeza (beef head), chicharon (pork skin) and tripas (beef tripe). When placing your order, be sure to ask for a side of extra green onions and pickled vegetables. Cash only.
Enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine and a full sushi bar while at this cozy restaurant that has a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Located in Alameda, La Penca Azul features generous portions at a reasonable price. This isn't your run-of-the-mill taqueria. In fact, it's a nice sit-down restaurant and they also have a popular happy hour with great deals on drinks and food. Try their chicken enchilada and don't forgot to pair it with a top-shelf margarita. La Penca Azul is great for hosting larger groups as well - come and enjoy the festive atmosphere!
