I ordered the quesadilla with steak and prawns - $21. It was not that big and there was not a lot of meat. The place was empty. I think I'll pass on this one. ?✋?


Pretty good. Nice staff!

Great pork tacos!!! Should have had one ... couldn't finish! Very tasty and packed with meat! I will stop in again salsa was great!

Omg. What a hidden gem. At least to me. This place hit the spot on Cinco de Mayo! Amazing food, great service/interactions and the margaritas!!! Fire!!! There is music playing, seating indoor and outdoors. The food came quickly and I will definitely be back!!! The shrimp taco hit it out of the park for me. The flavors, spices and it was so fresh. 10/10 recommend!!!!


They have such a nice staff and they make a SUPER DELICIOUS crispy taco! I will always come here and recommend it to friends and family! Super authentic!

Hey, I was a little late for my take-out, but I also was in a rush to get back home to finish my clothes in the dryer. "I'll put it to you this way," " I've never paid 20.00 for a burrito with no chips" "I guess everybody plays a fool!"‍

La Calaca has my favorite Oakland burritos, and I wouldn't sleep on their other menu items. The staff are fantastic and I always look forward to seeing them. And the restaurant decor is the best.

Fresh ingredients. Large serving size. Friendly staff If you haven't been before and the prices seem high (and they are a bit), order less. The tacos are the size of small burritos.

Been coming here once in a while for years for adequete, if not particuarly good, food in a nice-enough space but really upset tonight because they gave us completely the wrong order for pickup -- with meats we can't eat and much cheaper items -- and when we realized it and called them they blew off the call, answering but saying that since they were closed they couldn't do anything. No offer of credit or reimbursement, pretending everybody had left already, etc. Bummer.

I paid $30 and they gave me two items that were not my order and cost substantially less than my order. I called and told someone who worked there. and he told me to call the next day. I'm disappointed as I used to frequent this place
