Love this place, a "van" hidden at the back of the dude shopping village on the outskirts of Tofino. Guy in the "cab" takes your order and dispenses cheery advice, and minutes later the "animals" (their words) out back deliver excellent tacos and burritos. We rushed ours home to eat on the beach, but there's parking lot seating if you... More

My family and I went here for the past 2 days and will likely go again tomorrow. It is a very unassuming food truck in the back of a parking lot, but the food is unbelievable. There are always lineups, and I can see why! We have tried their tuna, cod and beef tacos. The smoked tuna with seaweed salad... More

It is a food truck located at the back of a parking lot. Not a romantic or pretty setting. But FUN and DELICIOUS!!! Fish tacos had excellent tempura halibut with crisp cabbage slaw and salsa fresca - not greasy. Order two because 1 will not satisfy your craving. Tuna tacos and burritos = excellent. Do not miss the Chocolate Diablo... More

After a long drive up from Victoria, Tacofino was our first stop upon arriving. We had the classic fish taco, and the tuna taco. Despite being busy, the waiting time for food was short and everything we saw coming out of the truck looked delicious. Next time I will definitely be trying the burritos.

If you're in Tofino you must go to Tacofino! Their fish tacos are phenomenal and their burritos are really good as well! PS. Add sriracha to everything! Also, their mint lime smoothie is delicious!

We heard that this was "the place" and it certainly did deliver on a very fun time. Like other people said though it was hard to find (at the back of a parking lot) but it was worth it in the end. Busy, and very yummy. The food was excellent, not the best fish taco I've ever had as I... More

Best fish taco ever! But guys, the signage for this place is poor, basically look out for a wooden sign advertising about 10 places about a mile or two outside Tofino village, the most prominent of which is Westside something or other, tacofino is then at the back of that carpark - enjoy!

We had lunch at tacofino because everyone had told us to check it out. I had the fish burrito and it was excellent. There was a lineup when we got there but it was worth waiting for. I was satisfied with the amount of food I got for the price. This is one of my favourite places to eat in... More

This was one of the best places we ate at on our 6 week cross country vacation. Located at the back of a parking lot with only outdoor seating does not mean it doesn't have great food. The fish tacos are $4.50 each and are huge so one might do you. Definitely worth stopping it!
