San Jose Taqueria on Coffee road is a quick and authentic taste of truly great Mexican food. Service is great and smooth. The go to order for me are the burritos or tacos. Excellent salsa bar that is kept stock. Pricing is good for anneal that takes two sit downs to finish. Also, ice clad beer. What else would a... More

The ambience is not five-star but the food is! Come here on any weekday evening and the tables are often full. The servings are generous in amount, always fresh, service is fast. Excellent value.

I've always enjoyed the Burritos at TSJ but it had been some time since I enjoyed one. I was in the neighborhood, I had time and I was hungry. And I'm glad I stopped by. As always, the crowd that eats there is diverse. A couple of high school students, a Spanish speaker from Mexico, an aging hipster, a couple... More

My wife, son and I last ate at this restaurant about 2 weeks ago. We always get good value for the price. I had the al pastor tacos, my son a vegetarian burrito, and my wife the chicken tostada. Everything was good. This taqueria has always been a favorite of our family. The service is always good, food comes slower... More

The wet burritos and the salsa bar keep me coming back. I love the variety of salsas available here. I have tried a number of entries over the years and have never been disappointed. The place is not fancy. Plastic trays and it is always busy. There is a reason. It is popular among HS students and workers who need... More

I pick-up Mexican food from this restaurant on average twice a month. My favorites are their soft tacos, chile rellenos, and nachos. The different fresh sauces available from which the diner can choose, make the dishes. The ambience is not wonderful for dining in, but the food makes it worthwhile, hence the takeout decision.

If you want menudo this is the place for you. The aguas frescas are pretty good to. The place can get busy but service is quick. I recommend this place just wish they would do hand made corn tortillas to go with the food.

You can't beat their wet burritos and the price is terrific. I like the red sauce and my wife loves the green sauce on her burrito. Taco are also very good. Give it a try.

Small place, BIG portions, good selections. My Latin son-in-law introduced me to their good food, and they have tamarind drinks, which are not available in m ost restaurants..
