Torta lengua – Taqueria San Jose

Torta lengua - Taqueria San Jose
Beef tongue, lettuce, toamto and avocado. $8.99
Taqueria San Jose, San Francisco CA

I really liked the huge chunks of beef tongue in this sandwich, but I didn’t like that everything was cold. I would have enjoyed this more if they had grilled or pressed the bread, or quickly grilled the beef tongue.

Combo enchilada platter Taqueria San Jose

One carne asada (grilled beef) and one pollo (grilled chicken) wrapped in corn tortillas and topped with enchilada sauce and white cheese. Served Mexican rice, refried beans, lettuce, sour cream and guacamole.
Taqueria San Jose, San Francisco

Omg, SO good! This plate totally hit the spot and it was pretty big! I also loved their refried beans, nice and rich and flavorful. You can definitely taste the fatty goodness in them. I would order this again in a heartbeat!

Sangria Taqueria San Jose

Sangria. I’ve never had sangria in a paper cup, but the nice girl at the counter told us that you get way more sangria in the paper cups versus their wine glasses and you get charged the same price. Score! And they tasted pretty good, too!

Pollo adobo tacos – Taqueria San Jose

Pollo adobo tacos Taqueria San Jose

Grilled chicken tacos topped with spicy salsa, chopped onions and cilantro, on corn tortillas.
Taqueria San Jose, San Francisco

I’ve walked by this place SO many times and I’ve never given it a second thought. Finally went during a holiday since every other restaurant was closed – I’m glad I did. The food was great and the prices made them all that much better. I assumed these tacos would be super spicy, but they really werent. They had great flavor though and that’s what counts. You can always add spicier salsa from the salsa bar.

Chips and salsa Taqueria San Jose

Chips and salsa. Gotta love these! These were on the thicker end as tortilla chips go, but very good and filling. Yes please!
