This is an absolute must when you're in the area. As a CA native living on the east coast, I'm forever craving proper tacos and burritos - this place delivers on the former, big time. This last visit found me hightailing it straight from the plane to the fish shop. + Made to order: you pick the fish, the seasoning,... More

Stopped into this little gem while in PB on business. Great outdoor bar area with table seating. Fun and friendly service. Tried the TKO due to prior reviews and was not disappointed! Fresh and hot with great flavor. If you are anywhere near PB, this place is a must-try!

Really excellent tacos with grilled mahi mahi and a mango salsa make this "shop" a "go to" place in Pacific Beach. It's pretty rustic so foodies with pretensions beware: you stand in a long line to order and then wait at wooden (well used and a little funky) tables either inside or out. You can design your own fish tacos... More

Wonderful little place near Pacific beach. You have to try the tko taco, it's amazing. Food is fresh and tacos are made right in front of you. Good draft beers too!

This was my best meal in the 5 days that I've been here on vacation. Delicious. And we're going there again tomorrow.

Very good fish, but both our grilled halibut and red snapper were a little dry. Definitely not tender and moist. Clam chowder was good, not great. I have tasted a lot of clam chowders this summer in New England. This one was missing a lot of the common ingredients that go into a great clam chowder. Overall, we were in... More

Fresh grilled or fried fish. You can chiose your fish, your dressiing and side dishes. You order at the counter and wait no more than ten minutes. Really great place for healthy people that love tasty dishes fish based. Must try it!

This place is adorable. It's a small place with some outdoor seating. I've never had anything from this place that wasn't delicious. Their clam chowder is my favorite. My husband prefers the chowder with sausage while I like the classic version. You can't go wrong here. Try it!

Went for happy hour oysters and also tried calamari, shrimp ceviche and lobster taco. All were delish!!! Popular joint, wish there was more that one cashier, but pretty quick service, nice place to try when visiting out of town!

Such a cool place to go. In Pacific Beach, a few miles from the beach. My friends LOVED their fish tacos. They loved them so much they ordered a few extra for the road. I had the fish and chips. Great fish, so-so fries. The atmosphere and service was spectacular. You need to drop in if you're visiting San Diego.
