Great no fuzz meals, prices around 10-11 dollars for burritos and 5-6 dollars for tacos. Tuna Tataco excellent fusion mix, great for the palate. The burritos are wholesome and very filling!

Was in Tofino for two days with sister and niece. Niece was adamant we had to have a bite to eat at what she referred to as "Taco Fino". A hidden little gem behind some surf & artisan shops.

Quick eats before a surf. Plenty of flavour, we each had a beef taco. Decent size, might need two if really hungry though. Pickled veggies, real steak type beef, fancy sauce, shells that melt in your mouth. Great little truck!

We stopped there to grab a bite, as we had read the good reviews. The fish tacos are excellent! I am Mexican and I consider that the flavour of the food there is really authentic! We would go back and enjoy more tacos!

Funky little trailer. Line up is well worth the wait. Fish tacos were out of this world. I'm not big on salsa but their's is delicious. If its too cold to wait for your order sit in the car.

Yummmm! Loved this experience even in the pouring rain! Fish taco was very good but Tuna ta-taco was noteworthy!! I am still thinking about it! Husband also had a quesadilla type item that he loved and this isn't his type of food usually. Loved it!!

Lines are worth the wait for delicious tacos and other seafood treats. Speaking of treats you must try the devilish delicious spicy cookie!

Incredibly fresh worth every penny and more. Vegetarian, tuna or fish all are the best you will ever taste.

My wife and I decided to check out this place out on our honeymoon as we had heard a lot about it. We arrived to find a lot of people waiting for their food(which turned out to be worth the wait). I had the pork burrito with just the beans, pork and cheese and it was big and delicious. My... More
