Delicious

Eat like 14 fish tacos every weekend I spend in Tofino.... Just be aware this place is tourist central in the summer and when you add the hungry locals into that it is crazy busy!

Considering moving to experience this place on the daily. Only recommendation is to go at least 20minutes earlier than when you want to eat as there was quite a long lineup (well worth the wait!) Also, there was some serenading going on inside the food truck, provided for some good entertainment :P Go, you won't regret it.

Fresh, flavourful, and original. The vibe buzzing around the food truck Tacofino in Tofino is quite interesting. A long line up of eager eaters and a few scattered tables of quiet but happy patrons munching away after a long morning or afternoon at the beach. The food is simply amazing and worth the drive to Tofino just to try it.

Tacofino is a food truck at the back of a parking lot on the side of the road heading in to Tofino. There isn't a sign on the road so you need to be looking for it. Despite all of this, there was a long line of people waiting to order because the food is amazing. Depending how hungry you... More

Good food no wait over the lunch hour on a January weekend and delicious. Ordered the tuna taco, the pacific cod taco and a beef burrito. Tacos were delicious but small. I would need to eat about 4for a meal. The beef burrito was the ticket. If I find myself in Tofino again, I'd have a fish or veggie burrito.... More

Amazing. Do yourself and your loved ones a favour and pull over and order. The setting. The people. Most importantly the good down to earth food that is being served up at this place. When all these things collide it makes for the perfect experience. Let yourself relax and Enjoy my friends.

Enjoyed the fab fish tacos, $5.00 a piece. I ate one, my husband ate two. The pieces of fish are battered and deep fried, tucked into a small tortilla along with cabbage, fresh salsa and any other special ingredients. This is a food cart with seating outside so be prepared for the weather. It was raining so we ordered, sat... More

This is almost a right of passage for anyone heading out to Tofino. It is a food truck at the fork in the road between Uke and Tofino. Stop, enjoy the fire, food and other people on thief own adventures. Fuel up here and head into town to enjoy the surf and beaches.

Absolute best fish tacos and chicken burritos I've ever had in my life. I'd eat here every meal if I lived in Tofino.
