Tasty fish tacos, also love the shrimp and steak. The ceviche is also good and you get a generous serving for the price. Friendly staff, all around a really good low-key, casual seafood taco spot.

We went to 4 different places for fish tacos and this was by far the best. If you're wanting to go out to eat this is not the place to go. You go here for the love of the food and that alone. I don't do fried seafood tacos so if that is what you are after I cannot comment... More

Okay maybe it's because I'm from Germany and didn't exactly frak up with fish tacos... But those Spicy Shrimp Taco's at Oscar's... Oh lord. I'm a fan.

we went to the new location in Hillcrest and really enjoyed the food. No a big place but great tacos. Well worth the stop

We went to the new location at 746 Emerald Street, San Diego, CA (Pacific Beach location), which is not yet listed on TripAdvisor (Maybe it will be after this review? Or maybe I just couldnot find it...) The tacos were fabulous. My wife, a fish taco aficionado, loved hers; thought they were the best she'd ever had, and she's eaten... More

Ordered grilled and fried fish tacos to-go. They were messy but fabulous. Came around 4:30pm and no line at all.

Cute, beachy place 1/2 block from beautiful Pacific Beach in La Jolla. Ceviche was to die for as well as smoked fish tacos and surf and turf taco. This is a must-visit when in the SD area!

Walked 3 miles to try the tacos since we heard so much about them. We were not disappointed! I do not like fish but had to see if the reviews were right. The fish tacos were amazing! We also had grilled shrimp tacos that were equally great! Worth the trip!

I finally got to eat here when I went for a late lunch and see why there is a line out the door every lunch hour! The smoked fish taco was the bomb! I think I'll head that way now...
