Took the family for their first trip to LA and I wanted to find a good place for them to try fish tacos. Jackpot! This place was our favorite dining experience in LA. Simple, unpretentious, laid back, value priced, and wonderful tacos. Seriously, we loved this place! It will be my first stop to eat in LA anytime I'm there.

The perfect stop for fish or shrimp tacos. Street parking in the area, no frills seating but a small outdoor space that is very nice. It's a must stop.

This place is located across from Mc Donald's. They have fish, carne asada and shrimp. All I can say is that these tacos are worth my 3 hr drive to go eat them. The fish tacos have a smoky taste, shrimp tacos are absolutely full of flavor and the carne asada are juicy and cooked to perfection. All I can... More

Good fish and shrimp tacos for very little price! $1.75 a fish taco, and $2.50 a shrimp taco. Fish and shrimp are fried in front of you, so everything comes out fresh! There are many salsa to choose from but some of them are very spicy! Recommend the radish salsa and mango less hot salsa!

Hole in a wall - great addition in LF. Simple food, fresh & easy. Radish salsa goes well with taco. Taco & super cold horchata - done deal!

Nothing fancy. But if you have a taste for fish or shrimp tacos and you're in the neighborhood come to this place! You could miss it if you drive to quickly and pass Hollywood and Hillhurst. Nice patio. So, it's better to sit outside. Granite top tables inside though. Wait to be called for pick up. Parking is a problem.... More

My husband took me to here for some shrimp tacos. Even though the menu only had 3 items on it, that was all we needed to be satisfied. At first we were unsure of the place because of the outside looks of the restaurant, but we noticed that's how its supposed to look like. The owner was very friendly and... More

My fiancé found a groupon for this place so we decided to try it. As the other reviews say - no frills. They only offer fish, shrimp, or potato tacos. That's it. Food was very good. Probably a 4 out of 5. Could add your own toppings which was great. Thus, we could load up on the salsa and creme.... More
