Great food, worth the stop!

Don't expect anything fancy, it's not. Seating is limited and there can be long lines. I live in the area, so I usually get my food to go, or I get it to go and eat in the car. All the tacos and burritos are amazing. The tacos have HUGE pieces of deep fried fish, which my kids love, but... read more

Outstanding cooked to order Mexican Food. I frequent Normitas at least twice per month for the past several years. The food is really fresh and as good of Fish Tacos anywhere! Of course the Carnitas is outstanding. There is very limited inside seating and 4-5 outdoor tables. Secret is to get an order to go on the way to the... More

This place is amazing! Tiny inside, long lines (sometimes), but always delicious, fresh, homemade food. A real little locals hidden gem in HB. (And PS - Hilltop Liquor next door has an amazing selection of craft beers!)

Found this place on Tripadvisor. I'm not that big a fan of fish tacos, but when in Rome... This place was amazing, I went back twice on my stay. You can't go wrong, fish tacos best I've ever had!

We were looking for a place to have lunch, our first meal of the day on this particular day, in Huntington Beach. My wife smartly consulted TripAdvisor to see what she could find. We had discussed finding something right near the pier so we could eat outside and enjoy a view of the ocean. So she finds Normitas and we... More

Definitely a hole in the wall, but aren't those always the best? Normita's fish tacos are fresh, delicious and made with a sizable piece of fish. The real deal for sure. The carnitas are also very good as are the beans. The service is not terribly fast, but is super friendly. It has very limited seating and there really are... More

Normitas is a perfect lunch stop. We had fish tacos, steak tacos, a pastor pork quesadilla and a side of guacamole. Pastor pork was a little greasy, but that isn't always a bad thing. They also have nice fresh warm tortilla chips and great green salsa. The fish tacos are great, but I think that they need some extra salsa... More

After a long day with kids at legoland. We popped in here to pick up some tacos...awesome. We had a massive order as there were six of us and we also wanted to try as many menu items as possible. Service was great and the food was just what we needed. Delicious homemade! Would recommend this place and will return... More

Very very casual next to the Hillside Liquor store. Great for to go or sit at one of the outdoor tables. But you are in a parking lot. Not a view. Indoors has a little counter to sit at also.
