My friend A’s birthday was on Cinco de Mayo but we celebrated with Mexican food in Oakland’s Fruitvale on Mother’s Day. Fruitvale is fun and close to BART. Fruitvale has Half Orange, a beer garden there where you can get local craft beers like East Coast IPA on draft for $3.65 on Mondays.
I chose Guadalajara Restaurant because Obelisco is closed on Sundays. We were skeptical at first when are cheap as fuck pitcher of margaritas showed up with oranges in it but they were delicious. A who doesn’t even like margaritas liked them. The menu is huge and as far as I know, everyone in our party enjoyed there meal and didn’t get sick afterward. I was eyeing the big crispy whole fish at the next table.
We got a big round table just before the Mother’s Day rush (there was a line out the door). Service was great and there was no issue splitting the bill onto multiple cards. They even helped us light the candles on A’s birthday cupcakes.
I’d go again.
