Restaurant review – Taqueria Tlaquepaque in San Jose

 | March 19, 2009 1:36 pm

More coming soon about my trip, but for now just a quick post to let you know to check out Taqueria Tlaquepaque if you’re in the San Jose area.

This local restaurant is so popular they opened two more within a few miles of the first.  I split a plate of nachos with my friend Sonya.  I’m not sure what made them so great because they were so simple, but they were fantastic.  Everything in the restaurant is made from scratch so that probably has something to do with it.

Here’s the Yelp pages for the three locations.  1, 2, and 3.  There’s a lot of people are complaining about the service there, but I thought they were reasonably quick.  One warning, there’s no hostess there to greet you at the door.  To get in line for a table, put your name on the notebook by the door.  I can see how if you’re new to the restaurant you might miss that and end up waiting a lot longer than you should.

This post is making me hungry.  I think I’d better finish up here at the library and get nachos one last time before I leave town.

I'm happy to use Increase Sociability.
