After a visit to Monterey, Ca. and having a great time, my wife and I wanted to hurry and beat some traffic so we left Monterey and just wanted to get something light and quick to get us to San Jose. Stopping in Marina, Isidro's Taco Shop was the first place we saw. I have found the Rudest server in... More

A long time ago, I had my first bite of menudo maybe in Ensenada, San Diego, or LA, or maybe it was somewhere in southern Arizona. All I remember is that it was so good. I often have cravings but don't find it readily available. Finally I had an opportunity to follow up on my friend's recommendation and go to... More

My husband and I have tried Isidro's several times. It is easy to find, and is small with about 10 tables, it also has a drive through. I t looks like an old Dairy Queen. The first time the waiter ignored us for almost 20 minutes but he waited on two other tables that had come in after us. The... More

I had the fish tacos. They were good, fresh & inexpensive. I used the drive thru window so I didn't really get the atmosphere. I did have trouble funding it because my directions said if you get to Palm Ave you've gone too far.. But that's after u make the u-turn. You have to go past Palm and then make... More

I come here for breakfast when I've really, seriously hungry. Food is excellent, service is friendly, and while the atmosphere is basically "fast food," that's just a reflection of the architecture -- I think the place started out as a Taco Bell back in the day. Anyway, the location is against Isidro's, since it is on a divided road just... More

I have been to Isidro’s several times. The breakfast burritos are great! I have had pretty much all of them and any one is a FULL meal for breakfast, they are large and good! Unless you are an extremely large person one will fill you up for most of the day. That is if you can eat the entire thing.... More

Friendly staff. You can watch them cook your meal so you know that the food is fresh and like home cooked. My husband and I really like everything that we get there. This is not a fancy place but there food is very tasty and the price is right.
