I LOVED this place. And I'm glad I shared the taco platter with a friend because these fish tacos are bigger than at other places, packed full of big fish chunks and yummy veggies. It might be "fast food" but it's made from scratch, fresh and a very good value.

Great customer service, but the food was just terrible. The crab was off and the fish was burnt. Came all the way from Indiana to get a California fish taco and We were highly disappointed with it having such great reviews.

I've known the manager when he was a waiter he's come along way. Service is great. The kitchen manager is top of his kitchen. Great variety, affordable.

I love the potato and fish tacos. The beans can't be beat. The salsa bar is always clean and salsas are made fresh. A local favorite. Great Mexican-style fast food.

This food is surprisingly good. This place may remind you of a fast food take-out place but is much much more. I would compare it to a full blown Mexican restaurant, maybe because they are connected with Yolanda's Mexican restaurant. I really like the décor of this restaurant-it is unique and fun. It takes you back to your childhood, especially... More

Ate here while on a short visit to Ventura from the UK. You go up to the Food Bar and order and then they serve it to you. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad Taco which was enormous (in fact couldn't eat all of it as was too full). Very good value and quick service. Situated in Telegraph Road.

All the food we have tried here has been really good. The Tacos, all types, are great! I think I like the fish tacos best. You order at the counter then they bring it to your table. They have a good selection of salsas and other goodies and the service is great and pretty fast. Our whole family loves to... More

I rarely will ever go to a fast food restaurant, but decided to give this a try because I did not want a huge meal that normal sit down restaurants serve plus this was not a chain restaurant. Found this place just walking down the street. It was very clean inside and the menu had a good variety of choices.... More

I tried one shrimp and one grilled fish taco. They were reasonably tasty. Portions were good size, refried beans nice, rice ambivalent. Salsa bar good as most reviews state. Hot salsa was relatively hot, which is good as I like spicy. Good variety of salsa as well. I will give it another go, perhaps a chicken and fried fish taco... More
