I have eaten at this hell hole and never again. Service:disinterested. price and value: not a good ratio, a little pricey to say the least. Food quality: think Mexican prison food or if they had gulags in South American. We are talking food that should be coming out of you and not into you. Quite possibly one of the worst meals I have ever choked down. I have never quite had food like this that tasted like it came out of a box or can.

I like Lelani have not eaten here but I can vouch for the margaritas! They are fantastic. I have friends that recommend the food here, but again I've only gone for the drinks.

I have to admit that I've never eaten at Alberto's Cantina in downtown Pleasanton...however, we shared a pitcher of mango margaritas there this evening and it was delicious!

I like to eat here because the service is fast. I like that you can eat outside in the summer. The food is good. I usually order the appetizers because the portions are large.

My friend & I tried this place because it was in our Entertainment book. Now we go back every once in a while (especially after we buy our new book). Our favorite dish is the Seafood Enchilada. They really pack in the seafood (shrimp, crab, scallops) and mushrooms. It's so delicious. They have a nice outdoor seating area facing Main Street, which is great on a sunny day. They give you free chips & salsa.

Pros: Good location, good food

Cons: Parking could be tough

While the Blue Agave has the beautiful front lawn for dining, when you're craving Mexican food you're not always looking for a super-fancy dining experience, particularly when you have a toddler in tow. For those times I suggest you saunter down Main St. and try Alberto's Cantina. They start you out with some very fresh salty tortilla chips and some great salsa. These are some of the best tortilla chips I've had in a while. Then they set you up with a tasty margarita and you're off. We also ordered some guacamole to go with the chips which was delicious although we thought the cheese on top of the guac was a bit much. I had the chicken mole for dinner which was quite good - the mole had a little zing to it and my wife had a very fresh tostada salad. The little one had a kid's burrito which was way too big for her. One thing that I've noticed about most Mexican restaurants is that they usually give everyone too much food. They could cut the rice and beans by half and we'd all be fine, and a lot thinner. Perhaps the best part about Alberto's is the wait staff all seem really, really friendly.
