I was wanting a good meal after a long day of meetings. Another service gave this restaurant 4-stars. What a disappointment. Even though there was a steady stream of customers for dine-in and take out, the food was sub-par. The salsa was not even made fresh, but was runny and I think it came from a bottle. The sauce in...

I always find that the best mexican food comes from a hole in the wall and this is no exception. I just wish it had air conditioning.

Neighborhood eateries are becoming a rarity and in La Cueva you'll enjoy great food, at reasonable prices. I frequent La Cueva with my family on a monthly basis and the fish tacos are some of the best in the silicon valley. Nestled in a old strip mall with humble settings, the food is the star.

So agree with ThumperEvans! This place ROCKS! We now eat here at least once a week! Best Chicken Tacos I've ever had. Son loves the chicken wet burrito and can barely finish it! (btw he has a huge appetite!) Hubby loves that he can get whatever he wants on his burrito, he's a custom sort of guy...no hot anything! Daughter... More

La Cueva isn't like your typical corporate Mexican outpost, but fully delivers on what it is: tasty & authentic taqueria-style Mexican food at a fair price. My first choice when dining out on Mexican food (mouth watering as I write this). As noted, it can be tough to find: turn off Prospect into the driveway immediately before See's Candy, and... More

A small place in a strip mall, hard to find, but OH - so worth it. Delicious and authentic Mexican food for virtually no money. They will even make stuff for you NOT on the menu. This is a little taqueria, extremely clean, and highly rated. It's the best Mexican food in that area of San Jose/Saratoga. The fish tacos... More
