UC Berkeley employee

Burritos OK, but terrible service. If you are not into waiting for them to bring water, or the bill, or whatever, I might not recommend this place.

I am a UC Berkeley employee.

It set the bar very high!

I grew up in Berkeley three blocks from Mario's and lived on the food there. Now I live in NYC and I haven't been able to find any Mexican that measures up! I miss it so much. And as an extremely picky/finicky eater trust me, Mario's is the best! Yes, the majority of the day to day clientele are students, but that just tells you the food is affordable. Don't believe the hater, Mario's is fabulous!

Best place ever

I've been going to eat there for over 25 years. When I was growing up I was taken there every week after ballet class and to this day I LOVE their food. The #4 is my fav. I now live in Walnut Creek and drive all the way down there when I want some Mexican food. I read the review where they were rated poor and could not believe it. It is so far from the truth, Don't believe it either. Although it is small, the service is wonderful. In this day and time, it is nice to see a good family owned business still going strong.

la fiesta

this is a berkeley staple. i've eaten at all the recommended mexican restaurants in the bay area--la taqueria, mom is cooking, etc...--and to me, mario's is hands down the best. if you don't believe me, go find out for yourself. the flautas are a must.

Lowest common denominator

This place caters to the college crowd which wouldn't know good food if it was right in front of their noses. The only thing redeeming about this place is that they have real margaritas. Service is poor. There is zero ambience. And the food is marginal.

enchilada verde and chicken flauta

La Fiesta is finally getting the recognition it deserves. We've been going there for 30 years and always order the same thing - combination plate with enchilada verde and chicken flauta. They have great homemade chicken soup.
