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

There is very little room to sit down in this place, but if you eat it there, outside, or in your hotel room it wont matter - it will be good anywhere! I got a burrito. It was so big I could barely hold it! The flavor was great! The chips and salsa were just your standard. We paid $15... More

I've came here because it was supposed to be the best Tex-mex in San Jose. Seriously? this is a fast food! OK, I've driven upto here and I'm hungry. I'm not feeling adventurous so I'm sticking to a regular Burrito and I pray not to be sick this evening. Opening it up, hey, that's actually not bad, it's even quite... More

La Vic is known for its orange sauce, don't forget the sauce. Its right next to San Jose State & its right in the heart of the night clubs in down town San Jose. On Friday & Saturday nights its crawling with people coming out of the clubs & students. We like to visit during the day or early evenings... More
