We go to Ensenada a lot, sometimes we just don’t want a big lunch. This is the place to get your taco fix. Unlike the car commercial, don’t drop the taco! I love there carne asada, I’ll eat 4 with a soda anytime.👍🌮

Don't miss this if you're in Ensenada. It's always busy. It's always good. We always stop on our way through. Amazing food and staff!

People guess about tacos and sometimes they choose not the best. However, here are the most tasteful tacos in Ensenada, adobada, cabeza, or whatever you want almost 24 hours a day. Just incredible tasty, and cheap. The local's opinion is the same.

Good tacos. Very popular and it looks very busy but you will find parking. A lot of locals and tourists come here. It was a little bit more expensive than the smaller Taqueria‘s. It’s worth a try. Not the very best that you’ll find but...it’s good.More

It's not gourmet. It's not fancy. But these are the best 'street' tacos I've had anywhere. People in the US think I'm being condescending when I say that the tacos in Mexico just can't be beat. But a visit to El Trailero will put an...end to that criticism. Partly because of the sheer turnover this place has, the ingredients couldn't be fresher. The variety is enormous in terms of choices for meat and fish with cabeza and lengua also available. And the salsa options are plenty and super fresh. I pretty much stick with the al pastor and have yet to have a better one anywhere in the world.More

This taco place is overrated. It is conveniently located beside the main road. I have visited this place several times and the tacos are ok.

Came with a local which is a good thing because this is a loud, busy, wonderful place that will have you totally lost if you don't understand the flow. Each station serves up different kind of meat, from carne asada, fish, shrimp, lamb, goat, pork,...etc. There is something for everyone. You order at the station of the type of meat you want and watch them cook it and dish up right in front of you. The tortillas are made as you wait. Even my picky eater kids, who I was afraid would turn their noses up at such as place, loved their tacos. You order, shout out to someone what drink you want, eat, and then pay as you leave. Wonderful people making good food.More

This place serves amazing Tacos. They make their tortillas on site, be sure to ask for corn if you like corn tortillas. You also have the option to have beans in your taco which I recommend. Great place to go on your way out of...town, as it is located on the right side of the highway, quick, easy and very satisfying...Enjoy!More

The tacos here are great! I have been here a few times but this is my first review of trailero. My favorite is the tacos de pastor. The seasoning on the pork is awesome combined with the condiments added by the taquero. The other taco...that was great was the shrimp taco as the batter is not very heavy and they add pickled onions which make for a great shrimp taco. But the campechano ( tripas and asada) was also good so just pick and you will be happy.More
