I have reviewed Tacofino before and it was just as good as the previous visits. This visit I had a tuna taco. Awesome! A seaweed slaw with sesame oil and a tomato salsa with a bit of heat brought it to life. Don't miss the Chocolate Diablo Cookies Wow. I'll be back!

Tacofino is a food truck ... but do not be turned off! It is located in a collection of other businesses and is not visible from the road. Look out for the signs for the Outside Break, Wildside Grill, and Rentals, drive to the rear of the complex and ... voila! This is fusion Mexican-West Coast cuisine at its best.... More

We were there on a rainy day, but still there was a queue. We were not discouraged by this and were not put off by this. I had the vegetarian taco and it was so far the best taco I have had in BC!

Tacofino is located in the back of a parking lot for a few other little shops. You have to turn off into a small gravel/rocky parking lot. There's some outdoor seating which would be nice on a sunny day, but even in the pouring rain when we were there, there was still a small handful of people lined up, which... More

Tried Tacofino because of the reviews and we weren't disappointed! I had a fish taco and a tuna taco...both were great! My husband had the chicken burrito and the fish taco...he thought the fish taco was great and the burrito was very good...burrito was huge! All the food was very fresh.
