I shop here frequently. The food is always fresh. Tasty. Quick service. You can watch the food being made. Not much ambience: just some picnic tables set out in front of the counter. Fresh papusas. They have many different meats from the standard carnitas and pollo to lengua. They make burritos tacos tortas. There's always a daily special. Try it!

The produce is always fresh and very reasonably priced. Meat, poultry, fish and seafood, delicatessen amazing value. Prepared food, especially the barbecued chicken and fried fish is delicious. The staff are cheerful and extremely helpful and the atmosphere vibrant and fun.

This edifice -- which previously housed a computer outlet store has been architecturally transformed with a creative finesse to project the city and culture of Mexico. An exceptional delight both from the outside and within.

The Food Center offers a wide variety of Mexican dishes, both traditional and eclectic. The prices are reasonable, and you have the choice of take-out or seat-in. From barbecued food to an exotic variety of curried meats and vegetable dishes, the setting is a culinary oasis.

I felt like I had walked into a Mexican canteen with the food in here. It's great and delicious. The food is one of the best in the area

I was down there for the Rock N Roll San Jose half marathon and looking for the good old Mexican Vanilla that I use for baking. The people there are wonderful. It is a real community. If the people are there and they have no ride then there is a bus that drives them home with their groceries. We could learn more from this company on how to care for our own families and people. God bless them!
