Oh my god!

This place is awesome! It's your traditional Mexican/taco shop times 50. Get the best variety and quality of Mexican food in San Diego from here. If you want or like trying local specialties, get the Surf and Turf burrito. It's the size of your forearm.. No joke. Also great prices and even better... read more

JV's will fulfill your Mexican Food Craving and still leave money in your pocket. Carne Asada Burritos and Breakfast Burritos are large enough for two. We love the free salsa bar. Parking can be a little tight; but there is street parking. Enjoy!!

This is by far my favorite Mexican food place in San Diego, I cannot even begin to imagine how many times I have eaten here. The price for the food is comparable to all the other Taco Shops and fast food shops throughout San Diego, what is not comparable is the size of the food items served here, My favorite... More

This place is always busy! Food is consistently good. Menu is large! They have almost anything you'd want in taco shop food from breakfast burritos to soup and combo plates. Kids meals are a great deal! Service is always excellent. Super friendly. Large seating area too!

Had the Surf N Turf burrito.....it's alright. What I can say that it is a 2 tortilla burrito, so it's huge! I don't know how this restaurant got chosen to be in the top 16 places for the best burritos in the U.S. I'm not totally convinced yet, I need to go back and try other items from the menu.

The first time I ate at JV'S was about 18 years ago. I've ordered a variety of different items over the years and all have been delicious. Alot of my family members and friends also frequent JV's. Great food, great prices and generous portions.

Great food, lots of it. And just a little money. I just wish they would bring back the tamales! They do special requests, and will change ingredients upon request.

Divey place. Nice server, friendly, helpful and funny. The burritos were big, we liked 3 out of 4 ordered. The grilled fish burrito was fresh & perfectly cooked. The carne asada was flavorful & creamy. The California burrito was so good my son ate it before I got a taste. The carnita was salty and not up to par with... More

JV's is a place where one often encounters friends, neighbors and fellow parishioners while grabbing some delicious takeout food. There are tables in the restaurant, along with a few television screens, but we rarely eat at JVs. The menu is pretty extensive and the service is always fast, even at peak times. Some of the burritos are larger than many... More
