We were starving after visiting the Mission Dolores and stopped here for food. Absolutely the best Mexican food we have ever had. We tried the tacos and burritos, both were delicious. We loved the strawberry and pineapple drinks too!

Taqueria San Jose has delicious, reasonably priced food, and a recent renovation makes the surroundings cheerful, modern, and attractive. Service is extremely fast, and we've never been disappointed in the food after numerous visits. My husband's all-time favorite is their huge al pastor super burrito.Mine is the carne asada super taco. What's practically unique about Taqueria San Jose's super tacos is what's included -- one of these is a meal in itself. It starts with two soft corn tortillas. Layered on top is meat (of your choice), cheese, beans, rice, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. It's delicious and filling, kind of like an open-face burrito, but better because you can mix everything together, so every bite is enriched with guacamole, sour cream, and salsa! They also offer excellent chips and a salsa bar.

The el pastor taco and burrito we had were simply scrumptious and well-balanced. Hot salsas available made them as warm as we wanted. Quick, convenient, delicious. Don't go for the decor or ambience.

I was very hungry and wanted some Mexican...El Farolito was super full and right down the street was San Jose...nice place, but NOT El Farolito at all. But if you're REALLY hungry...go for it.
