Celia’s Mexican Restaurant 1841 Euclid Ave., (510) 549-1460. L-D M-Sat; $$.
It is surprising on this student-oriented block to find such a fresh venue and such a tasty menu. The brightly colored interior is spacious, open, and airy, with windows open to the breeze on warm days. Selections include the more traditional items as well as fajitas, seafood, and a hamburger; favorites include enchiladas and a deep-fried chimichanga made with a flour tortilla. The lime margarita made with 100% blue agave is simply the best, but cold beer and sangria are also good options.
After, browse the carefully selected collection in the tiny Analog bookstore across the street.
