Oakland Zoo

9777 Golf Links Road, Oakland, CA 94605-4925
19 reviews

Although it's not the biggest zoo, it's quite a well designed one. There's lots of green open space for the kids to run about /picnic. And they put considerable effort in the landscaping. It's nice and green for the tigers...and savannah like for the elephants and giraffes. Besides walking around to view the animals, you can also get onto a ...

    Sports Page

    0.61 mi from Oakland Zoo

    Given that it's a 1-minute drive from my work, Sports Page is always my bar of choice for a nice brewsky after work with some coworkers. Sure, it's small and ghetto, but what more do you really need from a local bar? They have a good selection of beers on tap and they have all the big sports games up ...

    In-N-Out Burger

    2.89 mi from Oakland Zoo
    2 reviews

    My son and I frequent this In-N-Out Burger on our way to and from OAK. We also occasionally go this chain's locations in Pinole and Mill Valley. I continue to be impressed on how well In-N-Out executes their business model. It's the Southwest Airlines of Burgers. And one of these days, I'll branch out, look up their "secret" menu, and ...

    La Petite Sourie

    4.64 mi from Oakland Zoo

    I bought the strawberry cake which is supposed to feed 4 for $20, but it was just perfect for 8 people. It is pretty much some sort of firm custard filled with strawberries and raspberries, sandwiched between two layers of crumbly cake and topped with strawberry jam and more berries, not a traditional cake. It was good and not overly ...

    Englander Sports Pub

    2.06 mi from Oakland Zoo
    3 reviews

    I'm not really a bar kind of guy, but Englander was on the way to the OAK (and my son's later evening arrival). So why not? As for the Englander, our group had a nice separate room and Nadia did a great job with our food, drinks, separate checks, and good humor. The food was good (especially Bill's tandoori chicken ...

    Taqueria Los Pericos is located in San Leandro. The food is great and the place is spacious. The meats are marinated very well and the restaurant offers a salsa bar. This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the East Bay.

    Great little spot for Laotian and Thai food! Love the papaya salad and angel wings here. My favorite would have to be the ka soy. Get the sticky rice with mango if you're still hungry :)

    1 review

    I was introduced to Paradiso nearly five years ago by a good friend/client. He first took me there for lunch and within a few minutes after being seated I became a fan. Lets first talk pizza. This is one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. A true Italian thin crust that is cooked to perfection. It's ...

    Ono Hawaiian BBQ

    1 review

    My grand quest to recreate the Hawaiian plate lunch experience of my childhood brought me to Ono Hawaiian BBQ in San Leandro. While their prices were higher than L&L, the quality of the food and the fact that they accepted credit cards made the experience worthwhile. The restaurant was clean and the service was professional. The only downside was the ...

    This review is only for their Happy Hour which is daily from 3:30 - 7pm. Extra brownie points for having a daily Happy Hour and extended until 7pm! They have a decent menu for Happy Hour. You can get rolls for $3.95 and special rolls for $4.95. There are a few appetizers as well for $5.95. Along with drink specials ...

    Gayle is a nervous flyer and if there's a bar open at an Airport, she's there with her Bloody Mary. Several weeks ago (my how time flies!), we were getting ready to board our US Airways flight to Philly (and onwards to Lisboa), and Legends was calling Gayle's name. I grabbed a cup of black coffee from the nearby Peets ...

    Sometimes when I need to pick my son at OAK, I'm either early or the plane is late. I'm not a big fan of sitting in the Park and Call lot for any significant amount of time, nor do I like to pay OAK's parking rates and hang out in the Terminal. Hence, you'll find me wandering the aisles of ...

    For a work gathering, my boss wanted something special, so I had to do some last minute digging after the prior plans fell through that someone else was planning. Ended up landing on this place, after some research on the internet since I"m not from around this area. (of course I realized after I planned the whole event, one of ...

    Had I not had the 2 for 1 Groupon I probably won't be motivated enough to dine here. Tea used to be my favorite meal of the day until I moved to the States. I was so shocked to find out people actually don't eat between lunch and dinner. While it is undeniably more style than quality when it comes ...
