Been going here for ages! Great food and prices. The salsa bar is also yummy! It's located next to In Shape Health Club, so it's a great post workout place.

I like San Jose restaurant because it is easy to locate and not far from the freeway. I indulge in the super nacho's it come with a mountain of shredded beef,pork or chicken also beans chips and sides if ordered.

BEST carnitas I've ever had! I always order two carnitas tacos with only green sauce and cheese. Squeeze some lime on them, and it's amazing!

This is one of those reliable, authentic taqueiras that always deliver. I like the tacos but when I feel really hungry I get the nachos grande. I pull off half the meat and save it for another meal. I can never finish those.

I meet a friend here for breakfast occasionally. While I wish they had breakfast tacos, they will accommodate anything I ask for...egg tacos? no problem. The staff is very personable and friendly. In my humble opinion, they make the best shrimp cocktails around!

Our family came across this Restaurant on Coffee rd Modesto, 21 years ago. We have a large family, so eating out was a true treat. This affordable, quality restaurant (both of them).

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Modesto. There are two Taqueria San Jose's, the one on Coffee is good, but the one on Prescott is Excellent. Prescott location has a lot of room in the dining room. They have two t.v.'s playing same show, if not a Mexican show, then usually soccer. The food is authentic, hot, fast, fresh... More
