Editorial Review of Don Jose Tamaleria and Taqueria


Formerly: They don't speak much English at Don Jose, but if you ask "Cual es la Mejor" or "What's the best?", they'll be sure to point you to the Queso con Rajas Tamales, a light fluffy corn masa perfumed purse filled with fiery jalapeno and melted cheese, or the Flor de Calabaza, squash blossom quesadillas, a freshly griddled corn tortilla folded with stringy piping cheese and tangy orange and green edible flowers.

On the weekends Don Jose serve's up beefy, steaming bowls of traditional menudo, or tripe soup. Often considered a hangover cure, this version studded with fresh cilantro and a zingy twist of lime will stave off those pesky headaches.

Wash down your tacos and tamales with Champurrado, a hot chocolate shake, or a neon orange bottle of Mandarina Jarritos. There are a couple of tables littered with fat squeeze bottles of green and red salsa if you choose to dine in. Nothing on the menu (except larger bowls of menudo) is over $6, and all of the tacos and tamales cost less than $2.
