Lucinda's Mexican Food to Go

This hole-in-the-wall taqueria has been serving up some of the best burritos in Marin. Been going here since I was a kid. Their signature Carnitas Burrito is the size of a football and costs under $7.

Saylor's Restaurant and Bar

A little slice of Cabo in our backyard! Guillermo makes the best (and most potent) margaritas in town. Highly recommend their Santo Diablo Margarita (Santo Blanco Tequila, lime juice, orange juice, Chile de árbol, Agave Nectar, and Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur).

The Cantina

One of the best happy hours in Marin (Monday - Friday/4pm - 6pm)! All-you-can-eat chips & salsa; $5 mouthwatering margaritas; and $5 apps. They also boast outdoor seating with fire pits, heat lamps, and large screen TVs for watching sports. Bonus: their patio is dog-friendly. Olé!

Casa Mañana

In a town known for its Mexican food, this hidden gem may be its crown jewel. Located in the cozy courtyard of Marin Hills Medical Group, this Mexican hideaway dishes up classic Mexican/Salvadorian comfort eats. Highly recommend the chile rellenos, pupusas, and enchiladas. Their huevos rancheros for brunch will cure even the worst hangover!
