Delicious and convenient

Senor Fish is across from the Trader Joe's in South Pasadena. It's fresh, tasty and has a large menu from which to choose. I loved the pastor tostada. We got take-out or ate there three times while in the area for a two-week period.

While this isn't the best Mexican, and definitely not the most authentic, it is tasty and not too expensive. The best items I've had (and I've had many here!) are of course the fish tacos, the cocido (soup), and the al pastor (marinated pork) burrito. Carne asada is OK if you don't eat pork. The salsa bar has a huge... More

We've been here many times over the last two years, always excellent food. This is a very casual place with a friendly staff. You order at a front window and take a seat. They bring the food to you. I usually get their veggie burrito, which is large and excellent. We also get an order of the guacamole and chips.... More

Ok, so their shrimp and scallop burrito is incredible. Best burrito I've ever had, but they have a varied menu that can please just about anyone. I like their carnitas, as well as their asada. The place is super casual and relaxed. Always reliable and great for those nights when cooking seems like too much effort.

What a find! We heard about Seňor Fish via Anthony Bourdain’s review of the Sunset Blvd location which has now closed. The menu is really extensive so it was hard to pick. I went with the two taco lunch for about $7. I had one fish taco and one veggie taco plus rice and beans. Great value and terrific food.... More

When passing through town, my colleague and I found this restaurant on Yelp and decided to try it. We were pleased with our selection, but not at impressive levels. I had the three fish taco lunch special; it was very good. The meal even came with a side salad. The tacos were very good, and the sides were decent. It... More

Southern California diners are spoiled. We have superior restaurants and if you know better and are willing to drive, you will find amazing restaurants in this town.. Senor Fish is one of the staples in Los Angeles for only in-the-know-diners who know this city's secret spots. 7 Mares is another. But I come to Senor Fish more often. I love... More

I've never had a breakfast burrito with no eggs before and it was very disappointing. The bacon was undercooked and I wound up throwing the thing away. Normally enough salsa and hot sauce will get you through anything? Not this time!!

Hard to beat the fish tacos here. I have been going for years, and it is totally reliable fare.
