Reviews

The tacos has flavorful toppings and they were crusted with cheese on the outside. Reasonable rates and large portions. I will definitely be back here again to help with all of my taco cravings!

Everything here is so good from the tacos to the burritos. The chili verde burrito is spicy though! Just wish they had a salsa bar.

This is BY FAR my FAVORITE taco place! I discovered it when I lived in Almaden and now that I live in the peninsula I find every excuse to come to the South Bay. They definitely need to open one in the peninsula ASAP! Everything is amazing here! My favorite things to order are Super Tacos, Jefecita Tacos, and the quesadillas! The chi ... read more

Got their asada super burrito, asada taco and al pastor taco. Dude their tacos are effing bomb. As soon as I lifted the taco out of the box and saw a beautiful pool of oil I was delighted. Normally a pool of oil isn't a great thing but in the case of these tacos, it is. The meat is so flavorful and rich and the tortillas are so nice.

I came here on Cinco de Mayo for my first time. I have never eaten here in boy was a blown away! I got to super taco's with Carne Asada and two Jefecita tacos with pollo.

Haven't found the best Mexican food in the Bay Area, but this place was quite the exception! I've missed homemade/fresh tortillas and El Compa had such delicious tortillas! It makes such a big difference when the tortillas are fresh. You really only need a couple of these tacos to be full because they're pretty big. Customer service ... read more

Tacos El Compa is probably one of the best tasting Mexican Taqueria in south SJ. I come here for the tacos. They have homemade tortillas and great meat portions. You can get full out of one taco alone haha but two is actually enough for one person. My favorite meats are: al pastor and carnitas. I look forward to trying other items on ... read more

If you want the cheesiest cheese, get the El Jefe taco. Pastor -- cause that's the only way to judge a good taqueria.

Everyone scoffs at my recommendation of just one... but one is good. There is only so much cheese that your body can take.

This place does not stand out on the street, as the sign is almost invisible but once inside you realize it's a great place to eat some real tacos and Mexican food.

I would drive an hour+ for these tacos. Or I should specify - for the Jefecito tacos in all their cheesy glory. I was in the area and had this place bookmarked so figured why not, and now I have several promises to friends to drive down for more tacos later.

Excellent tacos. Had a pastor and carnitas. Pastor was one of the best I've had. Rice and beans were very good as well. Enchiladas were on point.

Small place with limited seating. Takes credit cards.

Food: I've been here multiple times, and the tacos never disappoint. The meat is well cooked, with the right amount of veggies, guac, and hints of lime. I highly recommend making a stop here.

We've eaten here a few times, and it has been consistently tasty. Great flavor in all the dishes we tried - with a wonderful true chili flavor that is more than "just" hot. The only disadvantage is that it's a very small place and there can be a bit of a wait at times, but we don't mind for the great flavor and value. Prices are reas ... read more

This is literally one of my favorite taquerias! It's a really tiny place in a shopping center that you wouldn't necessarily even realize is there since it's so tiny. The place is super small and not fancy by any means, but I absolutely love their food.

This place NEVER disappoints! I would give this TEN stars if I could.

Food is fresh, flavorful and reasonably priced. EL JEFE Taco is my go to. Salsas are fresh, savory, just the right heat... such a great compliment to their offerings.

The Jefe is homemade tortillas, with crusted cheese on the outside, filled with meat, onion, cilantro, and avocado. This bad boy is a BEAST. The
