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

I'm constantly on the search for a good, quick lunch, since work puts me on the run. Whenever I am in the area, I will stop here. Simple menu. Decent prices and they seem to try to keep them as low as possible. Salsa bar with a variety, though they all seem to taste the same to me. Good meal... More

We had spent a lovely weekend in L.A./Hollywood so now it was time to head home. But of course, we were all hungry and had to get something to eat before hitting I-5 South (even the dogs let it be known that they needed some food). Luckily, we had a Groupon for The Best Fish Taco in Ensenada, and since... More

Fish tacos are a little to fishy. The shrimp tacos however are amazing and well worth the price. Good staff and atmosphere makes this a great little pace to grab lunch.

I live right around the corner from this awesome little Taco joint. The menu is basic but the fish, shrimp, or potato tacos are cheap and delicious, and you'll probably pick up life philosophy from the owner if he's manning the register when you visit. The place hosts a comedy show twice a month these days where you can see... More
