Christopher's Nothing Fancy Cafe Restaurant Review

: Starting with the airy, arty feel when you walk in, Christopher's Nothing Fancy Café hits the spot. The fine assortment of classic burritos, tacos, sizzling fajitas, quesadillas and chimichangas ensures that diners will not leave disappointed or hungry. Christopher's even makes its own guacamole, a rarity for an inexpensive restaurant. The festive art on the walls and tables adds to the colorful atmosphere. This spot is easy to miss while you are whizzing by on San Pablo Avenue --- and, given its name, it's not readily recognizable as a Mexican restaurant. But slow down to savor a tasty bit of Mexico in the East Bay.
