  1. i don't know why, but i like their truck food better than their brick-and-mortar food. maybe it's just psychological....

    slightly off-topic, Taqueria San Jose opened up a new spot at Mission near 16th - it's not mentioned on their website, tho.... http://www.taqueriasanjose1since1980....

      The Taqueria San Jose in Oakland's not nearly as good as the original. I'm not sure they're even connected.

      1. re: Robert Lauriston

        The one by 24th Street has been particularly well scrubbed lately. i've rarely seen a cleaner taqueria. Plus they have huge jars of sangria (haven't tried them) and more kinds of beer. Prices are still very modest, al pastor as good as ever.

        I think there's a branch in San Mateo that's affiliated with the 24th St branch.

        1. re: Robert Lauriston

          i don't know anything about one in Oakland, i'm just talking about a new one at mission & 16th. the one near 24th Bart is cleaned up and very good, and yes, as Windy says, sells wine and sangria. The wine was really pretty good - an argentinian cabernet for $4 a glass.

        2. re: mariacarmen

          Their place on 24th was always kind of dark.

          1. re: Windy

            I was wrong. it's not San Jose, it's Taqueria Vallarta that just opened up at 16th & Mission - not sure if it's related to the 24th Street shop.

            wow, it looks like the 24th St. shop is closed: http://www.yelp.com/biz/taqueria-vall...

            no mention of the Mission & 16th store, so I'm still not sure if it's the same people.

              I think it probably is the same people. They also have a Taqueria Vallarta out in the Excelsior on Mission. They have the same taco "steamer" set-up there. It's at Mission and Persia.

              1. re: srr

                cool. tho i'm sad they're gone from 24th street. much nicer area than that really dirty corner by Bart.
