They are two classic places that have been in South Hayward on Tennyson Road for almost 40 years. In high school (I went to nearby Tennyson High School) they were must go's at lunch and after school. They are small almost take-out places that have a lot of good food.
The first is Cecil's Famous Burgers. Cecil's is amazing, great food and great prices. One of my son's favorite (and mine) is to go one a warm summer night and get a soft-serve cone (sorry no pics because it usually in our stomachs fast) and all the other food they serve are awesome:

The second place is about a third of a mile down the road and that is Taqueria Senaida's with some of the best Mexican food around. While Cecil's is more of a walk-up place, Taqueria Senaida's is more of a drive-thru:

I am a lucky person that I grew up with and still have two classic and wonderful places in Hayward to eat so close to each other.
