This place sits inside the San Elijo State Beach campground. We'd heard about it so we wanted to try. We were intrigued they offered duck on the menu. None of us wanted to get it though... We got a plain quesadilla for the kids. My son said it was not really anything special. But hey, it's just a quesadilla. The... More

The tacos and the bowls are good but not over the top. From a flavor standpoint I like Roberto's better. However, the view adds another star to the overall experience. Go go if you can snag a view seat, otherwise head on down the road to someplace a little more authentic.

Awesome. California surfer style, stoner worthy portions with great flavoring and tons of health options. Wild boar korean bbq is my favorite, although you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Have visiting there stand now 3 times at private catering functions, and they are super quick to setup ("just give us 30 min notice"), and its gourmet tacos... More

We read about this restaurant in AZ Republic so we decided to check it our for lunch. My first time to order any type fish tacos. I ordered CSG tacos and not disappointed. The service was fast and courteous. Alcohol pending though.

Finally tried Bull Taco--not in Cardiff (where the view probably accounts for the good ratings). Not sure why people love it so much. Any taco shop--Rico's, Roberto's, El Nopalito, is way better. It's fine, and they are friendly. But I prefer fresh salsa. They had salsa that you squeezed out of bottles into little cups. No chunky pico de gallo.... More

I love this place. It's amazing as the food is amazing, people are friendly and the view is amazing. What else could you need. Shrimp burrito is amazing.

Decent food thats relatively cheap. Nothing to write home about but its great for a quick lunch. Sitting on top of the bluff, it has fantastic views of the coast. A great place to unwind for a while and if you don't mind stairs, the beach is easily accessable.

Four of us had tacos: shrimp, chicken, pork. All were decent. The salsa was fresh. But it's not the food that makes this a "must stop," it's the unbelievable view (worth a picture or two from the top of the steps). Surfers abound here and watching the sunset from this perspective is worth every penny you pay at the counter.

We live in La Jolla, California, and still drive up the coast to this little gem! VERY casual, stand in line to order, great fresh fish tacos, and burritos any way you want them. Get a basket of chips and some of the best ever fresh salsa, and find a seat along the rail or toward the steps leading to... More

Can't beat the ocean view. I had a shrimp and a fish taco both were ok. Next time I had a quesadilla. It was also ok. They are opening another bull taco where jamroc used to be. I will probably try it.
