Good stuff great price here

Had the torta, chips and salsa. All were very good. Not much room to sit so I stood at the side counter thing. Lots of college kids at 10 pm or so when I was there. It is a block or two from the SJSU campus. Fun college vibe for a forty something business traveler looking for a quick bite... read more

We went to La Victoria for a casual meal. I had their taquitos with rice and bean. My husband had their burrito and also ordered chips. We had soft drinks with it; there is a 60 cent price for refills here. Overall its reasonably good Mexican food with student friendly prices and good size portions. The orange sauce is good... More

When we travel to bay area, our first stop is this place. Reason why we keep coming back is because of their famous vegan Orange sauce. Today we finally decided to try their food for the first time. I got the regular burrito (lengua meat) and my boyfriend got a torta (asada). Traveling from the central valley (fresno region) we've... More

very slow cook. probably 15 minutes for my service. one taco & one plain quesadilla, $6.00 holy cats! steak seems to be fried, not cooked over gas flame like the other major provider. missing the approprate flavor. (although the kitchen area was not visible, no confirmation). i will stick with the other major taco vendor in the area, super taqueria.... More

This is a great place if you are looking to try some Mexican Fast Food. It is open from 7am to midnight during the week. And later on the weekends. Don't forget to try the orange sauce. It is amazing. (No Judgment) I have drank it!

Not only are their burritos delicious but their secret sauces are to die for. Every guests I have taken here have loved the food and fell in love with their secret sauces. I would recommend everyone to try this place and be a repeat customer.

My friends took me here a while back (I think in 2009), and I have to say that I've had one of the best burritos from this place. They are known for their famous sauce, which I had the privilege of tasting. There's just something in that sauce that made me remember this place, even after many years.

The food is always great here. It is located right next to SJSU. There are many college students and young adults that come here. The restaurant is in an old victorian house on San Carlos, so it is pretty tight when it is busy. Great Mexican food!!

Went in search of breakfast tacos instead found something even better - delicious and different breakfast burrito! Fresh and homemade with just the right blend of egg and chorizo. Had to try the sauce based on other reviews and it is very different and good but just had a taste - It was perfect without any sauce. Saturday morning early... More
