My boyfriend & I are regulars here. We know the owners & the staff very well now. They are very kind & caring! Genuinely good hearted people :) The food is to die for. You get complimentary chips, salsa & bean dip. Their bean dip is amazing. And the salsa, omg! I am a salsa fanatic & have tried probably 100 different salsas all over the country & mexico. This is the best salsa you will ever have! First time I tried it, I decided I would come here weekly for the rest of my life. All their food is amazing. Their meat isn't fake tasting like other Mexican restaurants. It's all fresh! And delicious! The meat is seasoned very well. Rice and beans come with most dishes. The prices are very reasonable! Everyday they have some special so you can always have something for a good price. This is what you call REAL MEXICAN FOOD. Not white washed Mexican food like some other places. Love love love this place! I can't imagine my life without it. I'm going to transfers colleges soon & I don't know what I'm gonna do without eating here every week :(
Been eating at Garcia Jo Jo's for about 10 years. I like the shredded chicken burrito, I swear you can't get one like it anywhere in Modesto. The beans are so good, I think they flavor them with lard, but durn that lard tastes good! The chicken is flavorful and the rice kicks it. I get it as a combo with side dishes when I'm really hungry. Now for the orange seats, the decor is funky; straight out of the 70's or early 80's. I'm pretty sure they still have the original bright orange seats that probably glow in the dark.
Okay atmosphere and interior. I usually take my food to go. Very nice and pleasant staff. Always greet us nicely :) Very yummy food! Only order vegetarian food or chicken dishes. Chicken is always seasoned very well and is juicy. Never undercooked. Burritos aren't sloppy and runny like some other taquerias. The salsa bar is pretty great too! What I love about this place is that it's open really late. I think till about 10 and many other taquerias in this area close at 8 or 9.
