I recently revisited what I call my real home and stopped by the place I enjoyed most for my meals when I lived in hayward, and Union City. I had stopped at a couple of other places and they had changed or weren't even there anymore. I was so pleased to find out that after 14 years of being out of the state and living in Arizona the food was still the same , delicious as always. My grandsons also enjoyed the food. Please don't ever change. We don't have any good mexican restaurants near where I live in northeast Arizona. If you ever want to expand the business you would make a fortune here. I plan to visit at least twice a year and you can be sure I will stop by your place several times while I'm there. The one thing I miss most about the Bay Area is the good food. Thanks for helping make my visit very enjoyable. Wanda
This place is a little bit out of the way so make sure you get exact directions before you leave. It's totally worth it. You will crave it and come back for more. The staff here is friendly. It's definitely a low key place. This is a lunch place or dinner with close friends but I repeat this place is NOT fancy. It's clean but don't take a date here. That's probably what's keeping the prices down so don't complain that it's not redecorated unless you want to ruin the place. Las Canastas is clean and VERY inexpensive. They have a variety of choices not just tacos and burritos. They have a lot of seafood dishes on their extensive menu. This is REAL Mexican food. I would know!
This place is amazing. All the food is authentic. They take your orders promply. There can be lines, but only because it's a drive through and the place is popular, but they go as fast as humanly possible. You can order food at the front if you'd rather park and walk up. They do take credit cards. The charge is $1 so if you want to avoid that bring cash. What I love the most about this place is that 1 taco can fill you up. They make them avocado (mashed like guacamole) that is FRESH. They don't put lime in the guac like a lot of cheapo restaurants do to make it last more than a day. That is how you know if it's a decent place btw. Go there once and you will be hooked!
