THe Backyard



Mi Backyard Es Sú Backyard

Welcome to your Backyard. Tucked just off the Oakland waterfront, The Backyard is where tacos, margaritas and fun all intersect inside repurposed shipping containers set atop an abandoned parking lot. Offering a menu of seasonal, share-friendly Mexican cuisine and an agave-driven cocktail menu, The Backyard is a place to relax, share time with friends, and enjoy the world-famous Oakland weather. Well-behaved dogs and humans of all ages are welcome.


for sharing + drinking
