I had the tempura style shrimp taco and my friend had the grilled shrimp taco, both with Spencer sauce. Yummy! The tacos are delicious and almost a meal in themselves. We started the meal with clam chowder, this is very tasty and a little different than normal chowder. They offer 3 different hot sauces that they make, but they are... More

I suppose my taste buds are different than a tourists'. I find this place that appeals to the beach goers on vacation in the area here. While I think the place is neat offering ahi and salmon tacos, this is by no means the Mexican variety, much like Snapper Jacks, which I found to be a little more tastier. My... More

In a strange location, but worth the walk from California Street. Seared ahi tacos are stellar – be sure to get the spicy, creamy Spencer sauce. These tacos are a cut above the rest and they've got a great craft beer selection as well.

From the road, Spencer Makenzie's looks like most other roadside eateries, some outside seating, plenty of neon, but it really is an outstanding place. Excellent food, good local beer on tap and lovely servers who cope with babies and English people who need to ask about everything on the menu. Delicious chowder and the giant fish tacos, whilst not as... More

The Savichie is great! Tacos very good. I like the remolded outdoor seating. Short walk to the beach.

A great place to eat and a must stop when in the city of Ventura which is on the Pacific Ocean about 80 miles north of LA. I had just set up booth for my company and was hungry as hell. I wanted to fill my hunger and get a taste of the city in doing so. It was after... More

Just get it! The totally juicy delicious Giant Fish Taco. It's amazing, filling fresh and a deal. Ask for it Brooklyn style. 😉

Arrived on a busy Monday evening. Thought, let's go to another place. Decided to stay and ordered. They have outside and inside setting. Set outside, what's not like to set outside on a summer Ventura evening. I ordered a Giant Fish Taco and a calamari taco. Awesome. What can I say. Flavors, right amount of seasoning. Good, good, good.
