This is one of those reliable, authentic taqueiras that always deliver. I like the tacos but when I feel really hungry I get the nachos grande. I pull off half the meat and save it for another meal. I can never finish those.

I meet a friend here for breakfast occasionally. While I wish they had breakfast tacos, they will accommodate anything I ask for...egg tacos? no problem. The staff is very personable and friendly. In my humble opinion, they make the best shrimp cocktails around!

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Modesto. There are two Taqueria San Jose's, the one on Coffee is good, but the one on Prescott is Excellent. Prescott location has a lot of room in the dining room. They have two t.v.'s playing same show, if not a Mexican show, then usually soccer. The food is authentic, hot, fast, fresh... More
