      I'm a fan of La Victoria. They have 2 locations: 131 W. Santa Clara St. and 140 E. San Carlos St. Be sure to try their famous orange sauce.

        I haven't had many things off the menu yet, but I've had a couple of pretty good meals at El Amigo Burrito. It is a sitdown/large menu Mexcian place despite what the name suggests. Two very good salsas are delivered to the table and were wonderful on my chillaquilles.

          LMarella - You'll have greater chances of a reply if you explain the places you've tried, what you don't like about them, and where you have had mexican food you love.

            I posted this for my daughter that lives there. The only one she remembers is El Burro...she said uck. Other places she went where small and right now can't remember names. I should think that San Jose would have some really great mexican restaurants. In Napa she loves Don Pericos on First in downtown
