The lunch burritos are about a three...nothing special, nothing fancy, nothing unique. The breakfast burrito (with chorizo) is better than the lunch, but never reaches the four green balls (still looking for my go-to chorizo burrito). The orange sauce is a four, but I can't hang my hat on a good sauce. I'll go back, but only because it's on... More

I have been to Mexico and it is all the way in San Jose that I have the best quesadillas of my life all for 8bucks! Special orange sauce and all the goodness of a cheese quesadilla one can dream off!

Great Burritos, a popular spot with students from SJSU, the orange sauce (habanero based) while hot, is not excessively so, and the flavor is the bomb

This is the best Taqueria in San Jose CA. They have several locations but the downtown 3rdstreet local is the best. Clean and friendly and the "secret orange sauce" is to die for. We have actually made trips just for the sauce which u can buy and oh my goodness never disappoints. Please open in Montana and in Texas 🙏🙏🙏🙏

What do they put in that orange sauce?! It's amazing. I ate here while visiting from out of town and regret ever eating here because it has ruined Mexican food in my home town.

This was my 4th visit to the Vic and it didn't disappoint. Their burrito's are huge and satisfying and their orange sauce (the absolute house favorite) really good. Seating is REALLY limited so be forewarned and this isn't a place where you hang out after your meal as someone will always want your table! Enjoy.

A great place to grab a quick bit. Serve all the traditional Mexican dishes...burritos, tacos, nachos. Their special orange sauce has a great taste.

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

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