No Frills--just great fish tacos

One of my most critical goals when I visited Los Angeles last was to find a place to have a great fish taco. This place is IT. VERY simple menu, very modest facility, but absolutely the best fish tacos I ever ate! Prices are fantastic.

The best - and one of the simplest. They prepare the fish or shrimp (I had both) fresh and it's done correctly - breaded and fried. They serve you a plain, freshly cooked fish or shrimp taco with whatever salsa or toppings you want. If you want none, you don't have to put any. The prices are reasonable - actually,... More

Well, if you are someone who has trouble deciding what to eat, look no further! This place has a choice of 3 or 4 tacos, but each is delicious! The doctors and nurses from the hospital several blocks away made the hike to eat here, which I'm sure they do often. Sweet potato tacos and fried fish, made while you... More

I am finding myself to be attracted towards restaurants like this, having a simple menu and yet it has raving good reviews. I have never had good sea food or good fish/shrimp food except for my mom's cooking... until I came here. I came here with my friends for the first time because we had heard that it was good...

I've tried them everywhere. This is the best and have gone there for years. Big pieces of very fresh fish, the condiment choices have several homemade salsas, including mango, hot and mild, grated radish, quality lettuce, avocado and cream sauce. The music is good, and there's interesting art and crafts on the wall. Comfortable and friendly with indoor and outdoor... More

No trip to LA is complete for me unless my last act before hitting the I-10 back to PHX is to grab a few fish and shrimp tacos for the road. Soooooo good!

Unless one is using bad oil or bad fish/shrimp - a classic "fish/shrimp" taco goes from filler food to sublime in two steps..... Step one - the quality of the corn tortilla (unfortunately not all the same). Step two - the flavor of the accompanying salsa. BFTiE breezes through the gatekeeper (decently breaded and fried fish/shrimp); leaps through step one... More

If you haven't been to Ensenada you might think this is the real deal, but Mexico Ensenada it's not... The fish was very bland. not much flavor at all, the batter was very weak and not at all crispy. The shrimp was very salty. The salsa bar was great because it had a great selections from mild to wild.. If... More
