Son raves about this place, and described it as a 'dive restaurant' with awesome burritos. Hubby and I headed to South Division to try it out and were not disappointed. We had recently been introduced to authentic Carne Asada in Telluride, Co, so this was...More

I love these tacos. If you pay a little extra you can get homemade tortillas which is awesome. They also have a lot of meat choices. Great little place. I only wished they gave cebollitas(grilled onions).

Their goat tacos are so good! They are something you think about and crave. The meat is tender and shredded in your taco, the sauces are delish and spicy! If you love authentic, go there!

I was in Grand Rapids just for the day, for a class. One of my fellow classmates suggested Taqueria San Jose for lunch. Just a little place, with a lot of outdoor seating. My steak burrito was very flavorful and filling. If I'm ever in...More

I was pleasantly surprised to get a taste of Mexico, for me a Texan a taste of Tex-Mex in western Michigan. My taste buds were tingling and the chicken tacos were mui delicious. I'll comeback.

After seeing a review of this place in the Grand Rapids press a few years ago, we have become frequent visitors. Although the wait time is sometimes on the longer side, the food is delicious and authentic. Asada tacos are to die for. At $2.00...More
