Araujo's El Paisa Taqueria

We love that this family-run East San Jose spot, which got its start as a taco trailer 15 years ago, makes its corn tortillas fresh to order. Build yourself any number of tacos with meat selections that range from the classic al pastor to cabeza (beef cheeks), lengua (beef tongue), and tripa (beef tripe). If that’s not enough, pair your order with a couple of super tacos or round out your meal with a taco “salad.”
