Fish & go

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

These tacos were amazing!!! 6 tacos, 2 taquitos, and 2 drinks for $17. You can't beat the delicious food and the great prices

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

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
