Delicious...definitely worth the queue

This food truck seems quite hidden at the back of a parking lot, yet everyone should know about it. The queues can be rather long, but the food is definitely worth the wait. The tacos are really delicious. The choice is fantastic and prices are very reasonable. There are tables in front of the... read more

This place can get very busy but it is so worth the wait. I come here very chance I get and the food is always fresh and amazing. One of the best fast food places to eat no doubt.

Got there early, as was advised. We were first in-line to place our order and had the pulled pork tacos with guacamole! Excellent!

As recommended by other trip advisor followers I had a fish taco and a tuna taco. Couldn't decide which I liked the best they were both terrific. My husband had a chicken burrito and he LOVED it. For drinks we had a basil watermelon freshie and a chocobanana liguida. We loved those too. It's a must do in Tofino and... More

They had me at kimchi. Great food truck (where, we understand SoBo started out) with a fun menu. We stuck to the tacos and can report that they are tasty. Unfortunately, there's no shade at the tables by the truck, and the food/garbage cans attract yellowjackets. So bring your sunscreen because the line can get long. (Next time, we may... More

We had the pulled pork burritos at this food stand which were very tasty, filling, and reasonably priced. The watermelon mint liquado was also very refreshing and fresh. They have a picnic table area for customers that is not covered at the end of a loosely gravelled road so we opted to take away the food to enjoy next to... More

There was a long lineup - in the rain, at about 2:30PM!! A number of people had recommended this place, which is a little hard to find (had to ask in town). It is in the back parking lot of a strip mall just before entering Tofino. The tacos are about $5 each so you need to order at least... More

Literally EVERYONE on the Island suggested Tacofino and I was really excited to get down there. Maybe we just didn't choose the right Taco (we had the tuna) but I was really disappointed. First of all, I had bad customer service and second of all the taco's were really lacking. They were salty, the tuna wasn't very nice and the... More
