The tacos were as good as any you can get all over Mexico. We had a hard time figuring out when they were open.

As soon as I sat at the counter (recommended over a table of your Spanish works) I was asked "fish taco or fish taco". I decided not to choose and had one of each. The fish is wonderfully fresh and perfectly fried, crispy and uneven...with bits of chewy dark batter that add variety. The toppings are cabbage and your choice of salsas, and a few veggies are available to garnish as well. There is nothing particularly special about the tacos here except that they are done exceptionally well. Also if you sit at the counter you can get your tacos one at a time and eat them while they are hot, which probably amounts to the most perfect expression of the Baja fish taco there is.More

A great casual taco shop owned and managed by a wonderful husband and wife. This place is well loved for its pescado taco and limonada by locals and visitors. Cash only.

After our first bite of fish taco, we decided to eat there every day and we did! The place was filled with locals (always a good sign!) and very clean. Just FYI, you can order smaller portions of fish if you cannot eat two regular...tacos!More

Without a doubt the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. Ever. Quick and efficient service. Great hospitality. And the tacos are just amazing. Good salsas. Two tacos and a coke will set your back about $5.

These tacos are without a doubt the best tacos I’ve ever had! Some folks we met recommended this place to us, so we wandered down for lunch and walked in probably looking a bit lost. The owner is so friendly! They sat us right at...the taco bar and explained how it all worked. They had 4 different types of tacos today and we ordered 2 fish and 2 carne asada. They have an area that is filled with fresh salsa, guacamole, sliced cucumbers and onions that you can add to your tacos. The tacos are large and so incredibly delicious. We ended up with six tacos between us and fresh hand-squeezed limeade for $18 usd. We would return here every day of our trip for lunch, but the owner is leaving to go on vacation. We will be back in the spring and can’t wait to eat here again!More

This place serves tacos on flour or corn tortillas with nothing on them. You get to choose what you want at the taco fillings bar. There’s several kinds of salsa, avocado sauce and chopped onions and cilantro. Good taco bar!
