I'm looking for a place with excellent margaritas for dinner in the Berkeley/El Cerrito area. Any ideas? thanks.

    The food at Picante is hit and miss, but they make excellent margaritas.

          We ended up going to Fonda last night because my friend lives right off Solano. I had not been there for over 2 years, though not sure why after yesterday. Both the margaritas and the food were excellent. We sat outside which was perfect. Only minus was the service, our waitress clearly did not want to be there. But given the other pluses, will definitely be back more often. Thanks again for the suggestion!
