Been here a few times and tried the breakfast burrito and bean/rice/cheese burrito; both were very good. The ingredients were fresh and they both had good flavor. The chips and salsa are also good but they don't have a salsa bar.

My wife and I agree, this place has the best burritos w've ever had. We get it them with the beans and extra salsa on the side. No matter what meat you get, even the chicharon burrito was XLNT. Not that their rice is bad, but the burrito with only the tasty beans is to die for. If I moved... More

Another great hole in the wall located in a strip mall. There are definitely some great Mexican options in San Jose. But if you happen to be on this side of town, this one is a must try. Only downside is the food is a little pricey (in my opinion).

I also recommend Taxco Jewellery on Vicente Guerrero s/n between Marina Blvd and Emiliano Zapata Col. Centro. Owner is Hubber. You can have good deals. Never... More

My wife (Mexican) stopped by for lunch and were delighted with food. The tacos, the ochata, the pozole and the guac were simply delicious and truly authentic. Bring cash as they were not taking cards at the time!

The food wasn't that great, and with so many Mexican options in our area it isn't worth a return trip.
