A Delicious, Personalized Menu

Moving on to the heart of the matter – the food, Que Onda’s menu is a delightful culinary journey through Mexico. Tacos take center stage, accompanied by other specialties such as the iconic California burrito. The fresh-to-order tortillas are the star attraction here, made right before your eyes, piquing your anticipation for the meal that’s to follow.

A unique attribute of Que Onda is the personalized dining experience it offers. You get to handpick your toppings and fillings, allowing you to curate your meal exactly to your palate’s liking.

The ingredients were notably fresh and of high quality, culminating in a delicious medley of flavors in every bite.

Affordable Culinary Delight

What’s particularly appealing about Que Onda is the value for money it provides. The prices are very reasonable, especially when compared to the steep rates in San Francisco. This makes Que Onda not just a delightful culinary experience, but also an affordable one. My loaded tacos were only $3.95 each.
