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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Everything on the menu is delicious, great burritos, one of the best in south SJ. Their Al Pastor is awesome and Chicken is pretty good too! They even put lettuce instead of meat in the burrito for vegetarians upon request. If you call ahead with your order it will be ready before you can even get there, I've been eating here for abo ... read more

I’m very happy that there is such a great place where I can spend a great time with my family and friends.

My absolute favorite local taco spot. Food is always spot on and the portions are generous.

If u want tacos like your abuelita use to make pick no other location but your compadres. Tacos El Compa Taqueria is a must if you grew up on handmade tortillas.
Oscar I via - Nov 16, 2020
Best taqueria I've found in San Jose. Carnitas and Al Pastor tacos are excellent. Freshly made tortillas make a huge difference.

Just ate the unholy creation El Jefe Taco and you must stop driving, flip a u turn and come get one. It's what happens when a quesadilla, a taco and a Squeeze Inn cheeseburger had a love child. It's amazing and you must try one.

I've finally found a go-to place for Mexican food! This was the best I've had in years. It was even good the next day. I got super nachos with carne asada and a chile relleno plate. Both were very good and I really liked the carne asada. I'm looking forward to going back and trying other things.

The tacos were superb, I'm basing my opinion off of the AL PASTOR tacos, they're not your typical Al pastor tacos , they are very mildly spicy and cooked a bit more like carne asada and were marinated with the pineapple instead of garnished with it! I'd definitely recommend if your trying to experience new tastes in the Mexican food ... read more

Tacos El Compa Taqueria catered for my wedding on 02/29/20. They were organized and their food was AMAZING! All my guests were talking about how great the food was! We couldn't have asked for a better catering experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!
