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!

Was told by a friend it was a "must try" when we were in Tofino recently. Was our first stop on the way into Tofino - ordered the fish taco. This is hands down the best fish taco I have ever had. (and I've tried many - and liked some too) Soooo fresh - from the crispy non-greasy fish to... More

Having just read about this place in the Up! Magazine on our West Jet flight, I was determined to try the tacos. It's not easy to find but it is listed on Google maps which helped immensely. It is a 'bus' situated at the very back end of a rustic-looking shopping area. Just drive to end of the parking area.... More

We took the kids to eat there. We all ordered tacos. Fish tacos and tuna tacos. The food was awesome, fresh and full of flavours. The kids even went for more. Cannot wait to go back!

While this isn't the food truck, these guys do run it. Their truck, White Lightning is the best soft taco in the city, enough said. Go here, get a couple of fish tacos for an even $10, taxes in.

I've made it a personal goal to try everything on the menu at Tacofino and I haven't been disappointed yet! Everything is so fresh and delicious, if you love mexican food then this is the place for you! Don't forget to try their El Diablo cookies for dessert, crazy good!

Tried due to Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. This is a food truck with excellent, inexpensive food. The line was long for good reason. Food was excellent, special drinks were very good and the cookie was excellent. Highly recommended for the value and the food. A bit hard to find so just ask at the visitor center or any... More

The other Trip Advisor reviews were so correct. The tuna taco was amazing. Not like anything we've had before. Not to be missed if you are in the Tofino area.
