Breakfast done right!

Go here get the breakfast burrito and start your day right. The special spicy sauce to put on your burrito is just the BEST!

We were downtown for the Silicon Valley Auto Show, and had lunch here because of all the good reviews on Tripadvisor. The food here is delicious and prepared with a lot of care and very fresh ingredients. My family had three different burritos, chicken, beef, and pork. All were outstanding, we will definitely return here. The staff is very friendly... More

I have no idea why people like this place. I guess if you like overly salted food then this is the place. Some many other better options in the area.

Very Busy and they were open late so i decided to give them a shot. The food was really good and there was a large variety of meats to choose from that standard Mexican spots don't have.

Amazing "Super Taco"! No meat with Avocado, cheese, veggies and the crunchy soft taco - this is a delicious taco and i highly recommend it with the fresh Horchata!

Just go. Very good burritos and yummy other things. Be sure and have their orange sauce! It's not a formal place, and you may or may not find seating although I've always managed. It's just such darn good food!

I came in here for a fast lunch for a conference between sessions. I ordered the Al Pastor Marinated Pork plate. It was disappointing as the pork was overly salted and the rice and beans had no taste. The corn tortillas were also not warm nor soft, but with hard spots. Not a good experience. I realize it's fast food... More

My partner and I visited San Jose and stayed at the Marriott Downtown. We headed to the San Carlos Street location of La Victoria for a late night dinner when returning to the Downtown San Jose area. It was late and not many places were open, but La Victoria was open late! So we headed there (by foot - a... More

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... More
