Best burrito I've ever had

A cool looking food truck in a parking lot, with outdoor seating fro those who want to stick around and eat. Fast service, delicious food, definitely worth a trip or two whilst visiting Tofino!

This is a food truck that if you are in the area you must give it a try. The tacos are famous in the area. Would recommend this for a lunch pit stop.

Holy crap does this place live up to the hype! The best taco, and burrito, I've ever had. Had the black bean tacos since I'm a vegetarian, bf had a fish and a tuna. We went back again the next day for lunch. I could eat those every day.

This is our 2nd visit, and again we weren't disappointed. We made sure we stopped for lunch while visiting Ucluelet and Tofino. This food truck is "must hit" when you're in the area. We had the fish taco again, and our friends had the Chicken Burrito. We finished off with the rich Chocolate Diablo Cookie.

We'd been reccomended this place several times. Very simple but a good feed. Something to check out. Dog friendly too

A big, full, enchanting burrito. It left me full, and wanting more. A flavour explosion in your mouth that can be addicting as meth. I'm ashamed to say that I'll travel to Tofino again, just for this burrito.

You definitely gotta eat here. A little piece of Mexico. No fancy frills just simple surrounding with awesome food.

This place rocks. Get the fish taco, and add guacamole to make it a surreal experience. One was enough for me, but if you're super hungry you could probably fit two and not regret it. Seating is outside on a bench, and unfortunately they don't have beer.

Treated my parents & daughter to a trip to the West Coast about 3 weeks ago which included my usual stop for fish tacos and chocolate diablo cookies at Tacofino. My +/- 80 year old parents thoroughly enjoyed the experience... waiting in line at a food truck in the back parking lot of a funky mall full of cool stores,... More
