Best carne asada tacos I've had in San Jose.

Tacos El Compa has probably the best Mexican food in town. I've been here several times, and have always been satisfied. Their meat is very tender, juicy, and flavorful, and the portions are very generous. They also use fresh hand-made tortillas, and they are delicious! The staff is also warm and friendly, and the dining area is clea ... read more

Our massage therapist recommended El Compa to us about a week ago and yesterday we were in SJ and we decided to swing by. In the East Bay, we have yet to find a GOOD taqueria and Let’s say El Compa is the bomb!!!!! Don’t let the prices stir you away. You would think $4-5 for a taco- so worth it. My husband had the el jefe and super t ... read more

Best taqueria in South San Jose. Flat out. Don’t waste your time anywhere else. Get the El Jefe Taco Al Pastor.

May seem a bit pricey, but their portion size definitely makes up for that. Food is absolutely delicious and fresh. Highly suggest the carne asada.
Ainsley Carmichael via - Jun 29, 2021
From San Diego - best carne asada taco I’ve had in years. California burrito is delicious, too. A must stop, if you’re in the area!
David West via - Jun 20, 2021
Authentic Mexican food. Almost as good as my mom's cooking ;) Chimichanga burritos are my favorite menu item.

Wow! I love tacos and these were some of the best I've had in a while. Everything is delicious!

Gave this place a try since it had very good reviews and we were not disappointed! The pictures do no favor to how good and flavorful the food was!! The side of rice and beans were delicious and to me it was a good portion. The tacos were amazing and my husband enjoyed his as well. The only thing that didn't quite make it was the sal ... read more

Over stuffed tacos. I had carnitas tacos there that had so much pork in them it squeezed out the ends. Great value & taste.

Very good had adobada chimichanga but the adobada fries were better.

I don't really like Mexican food in general, but this place is just fantastic. I've had the burritos, El jefe taco with al pastor, and the quesadilla. All of the items I've ordered tasted great, had good flavor balance, were not salty, and tasted fresh.

Good tacos and burrito bowls. They don't sell menudo.

When I crave tacos I come here. I almost always just order the Al Pastor tacos though the others are good too, its just that I love the Al Pastor here. I go for the regular tacos, with just onion and cilantro, add some of their red sauce and a squeeze of lime, and I'm instantly in heaven.
Steven Sill via - Mar 8, 2021
I've tried a lot of taquerias in San Jose and this is hands down one of the best. The meats all have a really good flavor and the quality is consistently delicious every time. Their handmade tortillas are so good!
Aylof via - Feb 26, 2021
I don't leave a lot of reviews but I must say, this place is THE best. Absolutely unbelievable quality in the meats. Steak can be a bit spicey and the nacho fries with carnitas is bonkers delicious.
Michael Possumato via - Feb 7, 2021
Incredible authentic Taqueria! Hand made Tortillas, very hight quality meats. Always a wait though so make sure you have about 15 to 20 minutes to spare.

5 stars for food quality!!! Only gave 4 stars because at times they don’t answer the phone for awhile or I have to try multiple times when they are busy, and sometimes the time estimates are off. But the burritos are huge and delicious, I go every week.

The food here is incredible. Be prepared to wait as they're on the slower end of an order-at-the-counter spot but it's well worth it!

This is my go-to taco place in San Jose. Everyone I have ever taken here has said the exact same thing! Love their pastor tacos!
Evelia Leyva via - Dec 16, 2020
Quick, friendly staff. Good food. The handmade tortillas are really good. The Chili Verde was very good, but has a pretty good kick. I liked there rice too.
Vincent Guinnane via - Dec 13, 2020
Small family place that just does takeout, absolutely worth picking it up yourself instead of relying on a delivery service. Fresh sauces, amazing fresh tortillas, and perfect traditional little 'street' tacos with just onions, salsa, and your choice of meat. I'm a huge fan of both the carne asada and chicken, but the floutas combo ... read more

Simply divine beauty and delicious food they served. The famous Taco and freshly cooked beef with veggies on it, will give you an awe experienced.
