Tacubaya is a taqueria in the 4th Street shopping district of Berkeley. It is named after the neighborhood in Mexico City where famed architect Luis Barragan lived. Much like Barragan's modern architecture, which in its purity and simplicity was respectful of tradition, we wanted to create a taqueria that paid respect to traditional dishes such as: sopa de tortilla, tacos al pastor, and tamales con verduras. Tacubaya has allowed us to recreate the beloved dishes usually found in Mexico at street vendor stands and in home kitchens and family taquerias.
We do not accept reservations. We are a casual counter service restaurant, just come see us!
