Found this place on Google maps, leaving SeaWorld. Not in a touristy part of town, and parking can get tight. The menu is HUGE! Prices are reasonable, and enjoyed their food!!! Service was good. Salsa bar present. I shared a California burrito, and a 6 order of rolled tacos! Plenty of food for 3. On person ordered the flautas, and... More

I was so full afterwords, that's what it felt like. A bowling ball. But so damned good. I'm simple. Give me a really good burrito and a giant frothy horchata to wash it down and I'm in the best food coma ever. This was one of those situations. There's nothing to elaborate on really. They have all the staples and... More

We stopped here for dinner. It's a bit hidden and not fancy but so good. Our kids loved the Mexican juice. I ordered the recommended Carne Asada burrito and my husband ordered the seafood burrito. Both were huge and we couldn't finish. The tortillas were truly homemade. Chips and salsa were fresh, crunchy and simply delish. Our kids ordered beef... More

We have been to JV's several times, and they never disappoint. I always get the Hawaiian burrito - it's great! The only bad part about the place is the parking. If you go at lunch time, you may not be able to find a place to park.

Native San Diegan who eats a lot of Mexican food. JVs is reliably mediocre. Portions are big, hot carrots are free, not a huge fan of there salsa.

There is always a line, so that tells you something! They have just about every combination you can think of, their menu is huge. Great people, fast service, condiment bar, ample seating, always good. This is the best taco shop in SD, in my opinion.
