A well-known Mexican restaurant in Berkeley, Picoso is the perfect location for a flavorful menu. The great quality, set in a familiar atmosphere, will have you coming back for more.
Thanks to its outdoor seating, the restaurant is a fantastic option when you feel like soaking in some of those Cali rays. There's no specific recommended attire, so feel free to dress casually and comfortably. Also, though the prices are considered to be lower than average, you aren't going to sacrifice any quality. In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
For those watching what they eat, the robust menu features items that are gluten-free, low-fat, organic, vegan, and vegetarian. Plus, it's been tabbed as a nice option for both families with children and large groups. In addition to its convenient take-out offerings, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town. Or, if you just want to stop by for a beverage, the restaurant has a good selection at its bar.
A favorite for lunch in North Berkeley, a trip to Picoso is definitely worthwhile. Visitors to the restaurant have access to a parking garage or private lot nearby (or can park on the street).
