This is the best Taqueria in San Jose CA. They have several locations but the downtown 3rdstreet local is the best. Clean and friendly and the "secret orange sauce" is to die for. We have actually made trips just for the sauce which u can buy and oh my goodness never disappoints. Please open in Montana and in Texas 🙏🙏🙏🙏

What do they put in that orange sauce?! It's amazing. I ate here while visiting from out of town and regret ever eating here because it has ruined Mexican food in my home town.

This was my 4th visit to the Vic and it didn't disappoint. Their burrito's are huge and satisfying and their orange sauce (the absolute house favorite) really good. Seating is REALLY limited so be forewarned and this isn't a place where you hang out after your meal as someone will always want your table! Enjoy.

A great place to grab a quick bit. Serve all the traditional Mexican dishes...burritos, tacos, nachos. Their special orange sauce has a great taste.

We were downtown for the Silicon Valley Auto Show, and had lunch here because of all the good reviews on Tripadvisor. The food here is delicious and prepared with a lot of care and very fresh ingredients. My family had three different burritos, chicken, beef, and pork. All were outstanding, we will definitely return here. The staff is very friendly... More

Go here get the breakfast burrito and start your day right. The special spicy sauce to put on your burrito is just the BEST!

I have no idea why people like this place. I guess if you like overly salted food then this is the place. Some many other better options in the area.

Very Busy and they were open late so i decided to give them a shot. The food was really good and there was a large variety of meats to choose from that standard Mexican spots don't have.
