Any great authentic Mexican food served Cafeteria style in the Bay Area?

I just got back from San Diego and some of the Mexican Restaurants serve the food Cafeteria style?

It was fantastic!

My favorite was :

Super Cocina in North Park. 3627 University Avenue.

Absolutely some of the finest authentic family style Mexican food I have ever had.

All the soups and stews were displayed right in front of you with plenty of free tastings from the friendly staff.

They had about 12 different dishes to chose from to make up your combination plate.

"guisado style dishes: meats stewed in a flavorful broth/ sauce. These are the kind of dishes that work well with a steam table type of service, as they actually improve with the length of time held. And, you will never get tired of the menu, as there is none. The contents of the chafing dishes changes daily at the whimsy of the Mexican trained mamasita's"

It was heavenly,I ate there 3 times in 6 days.

Not the place to go if you want a Burrito or a tourist meal.

Not much English is spoken and the Menu is only in Spanish.

Does anyone know of any similar places in the Bay Area?

I'm hooked!
