Just like with Lucha Libre a mile or so away, I hit this place having seen it on the fivethirtyeight.com burrito challenge. Very nondescript storefront, and I actually missed it the first time driving by. Glad I found it. I went with a taco al pastor burrito with the guac on the side. One word - massive. Packed full of...

Have been here twice now. Bright decor, surprising to find more seating than it looks like it will have from the outside. Small parking lot. It's a busy place, which means people like it. The burritos are huge, and the selection on the menu is wide. There's a good sauces/salsas bar. However, I didn't think it tasted that great, either... More

I discovered this place while a student at University of San Diego. When I had no time to eat before class, after a long day at work, I'd stop at JVs and it felt like my Mexican mama had made me the best meal ever. I love this place. The heart is definitely closely aligned to the stomach.

We had the burrito (size of a small baby), enchilada platter, Shrimp Quesadilla, and chips and guac. The chips were the lightest and most delicious chips ever. The food was excellent. Large portions. We could not... More

I took my wife here for dinner. We were just hanging out before we went to La Jolla. The food was really good. I over ordered thinking the portions were small. That was a big mistake. They gave us so much food, we had dinner for the next two days. Wish they had told us how large the portions were.

I had the menudo. It was good for the price. Seems like local stop and very casual. The staff are very friendly. The food comes out quickly.

We used to go to this restaurant when it first opened and enjoyed it. There are so many small takeout/dine-in small mexican places in San Diego and of course the food varies from place to place, style to style. JV's use to be pretty good. We were in the area today and my wife and I decided to stop in... More

The meat was overcooked, even by Mexican standards. No atmosphere. Plusses were very low price and fast service. Consider it a step above Mexican fast food.
