The best fish taco ever

Great tacos, which are really more like a tostada, served open face. 1 is more than enough. Big pile of fresh salad topping. Very reasonable if you go with basic fish, chicken, chili verde, etc. Scallops,etc are pricey and we haven't tried, but saw several people getting them and they looked awesome. They have their own style, not traditional Mexican... More

Ate there for lunch and ordered a chili Verde burrito, got there and to the counter inside to order, the staff ignored us as it was soooo busy... it was the first time eating here, we wanted to get take out and the guy was a little rude, maybe tired but not sure. The chips and salsa are delicious and... More

The parking lot always seems busy and I understand why. The friendly staff serves happily among the crowd of customers. There are so many amazing options for tacos, especially a lot using fish. Apologies-we went last year and I forgot I'd started this review! whoops! so I forgot our specific meals-but it was superb!! Highly recommend.

We were told to eat here and only order one fish taco at a time, so we did. WOW! We could only eat one taco and they weren't expensive either! Then we took a slice of their "Killer Carrot cake" home. Let me tell you-DON'T LEAVE WITH OUT GETTING A SLICE!!! Rebecca waited on us and we all say thanks-you... More

I met my brother in Morro Bay for a couple of days. We dined here on a recommendation from a friend who lives in Morro Bay. This place is amazing! Great food and service. We had the scallop tacos, best scallops I have ever eaten. Don't miss this place......

Noisy, crowded, and always a wait...but the food is worth it! If you can order Take Out it is a good idea. You can get your food quickly and take back to the comfort of your hotel room, campground or vacation rental. One taco can be really cheap or expensive depending on what you order within the taco.

If you order off the special menu you will not be disappointed but your meal will be costly. If you order off the regular menu you can feed a family of 4 for less than $20 bucks. Food is always great and always consistent. There is no printed children's menu but you can order a burrito or quesadilla for the... More

The food is great. The servers are pleasant. The atmosphere is noisy whens it gets really busy. The salmon tacos, chicken tacos and carnnitos tacos are all delicious. The burritos are enormous.

You will be pleased with the meals. The fish, in anything you might order, is always the best available. The salmon has always been a favorite in anything I have ordered. The portions are huge, very tasty and you probably will want to come back over and over. You never know how long the wait might be, so be prepared... More
