This little place is in a small shopping center, but it is SO good. The owners are great about supporting the local schools and the food is more on the traditional side. We really like the enchiladas and recently I had the fish tacos which were quite good.

Have been going to Casa Teresa for many years and it's time I finally write a review! My family & I have had just about everything on the menu over the years, and just about everything is great. Especially love the guacamole, shrimp fajitas, chile relleno, and the chicken mole is made just right. Jesse, the owner is usually there--very... More

One person had the carnitas and loved her food. I had the Al Pastor tacos and the tacos were pretty decent (I liked that they had pineapple in them), but the rice was a bit tasteless. My husband got the chicken mole and described his experience as "Cafeteria Food".

I had lunch here a few days ago with my co-workers. This was one of the better Mexican restaurants in the South San Jose area. I ordered the Enchilada's lunch special. While we waited for our food, I snacked on the chips and salsa. When the food came out, I thought it wasn't a huge portion, but just right. I... More

Really friendly and clean atmosphere. Food was good and was a great price point for the area. Our chips and salsa and margaritas were never empty because the staff was attentive and brought refills promptly.
