This place looks like a strange mix of food truck meets tiny shopen. It is not upscale and it is terrific! My favorites are those dang chimichangas the size of footballs and the enchiladas. My husband goes for the grilled fish tacos. Great - just writing this makes me hungry.

Had two tasty burritos while on the "burrito tour" of San Jose with my brother. This (out of four) was our favorite - tasty chicken burritos bursting with flavor. The burritos are big, but pricy at $10 each. There is no salsa bar but they have a few hot sauce choices on the table. No chips. Takes credit cards. Tons... More

As far as fish tacos/burritos go in San Jose, this is a reasonable option. They have a nice variety of fish to choose from and they dress them quite well. Do they serve up the best fish tacos ever? No. But if you have a need for a pretty good option. This is that place. Candidly, I feel given the... More

We've eaten dinner at Dia de Pesca on several occasions this last year (2015). Be sure to bring CASH! They have many choices for fish tacos. The food is reasonably priced. During our last visit our server spilled our food on us and did not bother to apologize but quickly walked back to the kitchen area. This is an exception... More

This is my go to South Bay spot for fis tacos. They've got snapper, octopus, shrimp, huachinango and more. Their sea food has always been fresh. The cooks have a really light hand in frying their calamari. Clam chowder is creamy although it might be light for some tastes. It can be busy at lunch. There is limited parking onsite.... More

Great reviews led my husband and I to dia de pesca and to a quick meal at a local favorite. While we were there several people stopped by to pick up carry out and seemed to be regulars. Always a good sign. This small restaurant had a creative menu. I had a delicious prawn taco as well as a house... More

Very fresh seafood in traditional coastal Mexican style. The al fresco dining is very pleasant in warm weather, and there is indoor seating when it is wet or cold out.

I really son't like it when I have to pay or beg for chips and salsa at a Mexican restaurant. Here they don't even bring them to you unless you ask, then you wait forever for them...and for the second basket...forget it, we had to ask 2 different people for them. The food was good overall, but nothing spectacular. My... More
