Amazing fish tacos

My boyfriend and I ate here in June for dinner, parking was a little difficult because this place was packed but totally worth it! We chose to eat here because of the great reviews and we are glad we did. We both had a TKO fish taco and I had a shrimp taco and my boyfriend had a lobster taco... read more

I've eaten salmon all over the world and if you like it blackened, this is the place! I usually get it on a salad, always fresh. My husband loves their tacos, we alway share an order fries or ceviche. They have a small but very nice craft beer selection. They are also pet friendly on the patio! We simply love... More

We stopped in twice in the last few weeks for dinner, and the food was great. The first time, everything was nice but there wasn't as much fish in the tacos as usual. Wonderful flavors, just a bit shy on the seafood. The second time, the food could not have been better. The tacos were Full of seafood and perfectly... More

Of all the places we dined at in SAN recently , this was our overall favorite. Great little beach town vibe ... really tasty flavorful food... and reasonably priced... four of us each had something different and all were very satisfied...worth the wait!!!

By far the best fish tacos in SD. They have a variety of fresh fish available with tons of options with regards to marinades for the fish. Lobster and Scallop tacos are a must. Beer is super expensive here. Great outdoor patio with bar and fire pit.

Delicious food, fun atmosphere and a line at the door. The fish tacos are award winners and I can understand why. The TKO taco has a wonderful tropical salsa that awakens the taste buds. The ceviche is flavorful and even though I got the small size it was plenty to share. Grab a menu and stand in line. It's worth... More

I was really looking forward to fish tacos, I think they would of been if the torillas couldn't have been cold. They flavor and toppings were good but the cold tortilla feeling in my mouth overpowered. But, the fried calamari with jalapeño l was the bomb.

... on whether you were sober, or buzzed. When I see reviews that proclaim "Great Food!!!" then I expect greatness. Then again, I was sober. I can imagine someone chowing down on fried fish after chugging a beer. Hey, after a few beers, I'd be raving over brussel sprouts. So, even if the lout at the next table is bragging... More

First visit to this place and plan to return on next trip to San Diego. My husband and I were craving good seafood and this place did not disappoint. Had fried cod, jumbo shrimp, fries and onion rings. They were perfect and generous portions. Husband enjoyed the clam chowder and only wished it was a little thicker consistency, but he... More
