These taco's are AH MA ZING! The fish is my favorite, but my husband likes the beef better. Truly a great food and option and a MUST TRY. Seriously - go eat it. We stayed in the Tofino area for a few days and consider ourselves to be...well...picky eaters and this was a hit. We went 3 days in a... More

We had this food truck recommended and the recommendation was spot on. The fish tacos were perfect with huge chunks of fish that were prepared perfectly. Seating is outside so watch the weather. We were told to get there early to avoid lineups and that was so true. At 11:30 we were fourth in line; by noon the lineup was... More

The long lines I saw at Tacofino when I drove up only heightened my expectations of this foodie truck. Long lines are are a good sign. Since this foodie truck lives in Tofino, I went all in for the fish tacos. Fresh fish...right? Unfortunately, my first and second bites were overpowered by the super crispy breading. I knew there was... More

Great tacos here, however, the line is so long that you're so hungry by the time you get your food it's hard to tell if it's your hunger or the food talking.

Sometimes the hype surpasses the experience. I think Tacofino is a case in point. The line was long. Our Fresco (advertised as a frozen blended lemonade) came out 15 minutes before the food. It separated, thawed and didn't taste very good, long before we got our food. We ordered a Crispy Chicken Burrito, a Beef & a Fish Taco. The... More

Tucked away in the back corner, rustic dining to say the least. the line-up tells you everything. people will wait 15 - 20 minutes maybe more for possibly the best tasting Taco's or Burrito's in the world, or at least the best ones I have ever eaten!

There's a lot of love out there for Tacofino and it's well deserved. It can be hard to live up to expectations when a place gets this much praise, but these guys do just that. Believe the hype. I've had a lot of fish tacos over the years and Tacofino makes the best, hands down. So delicious. And the 2... More

Of course we had to visit Tacofino while in town! Had a great Baja style taco and a delicious lime mint slushie. Sooooo good. The Tacofino team is always fun to deal with and the food is great

When you see a huge line up, you know the food is going to be awesome. My buddy ordered ahead of time so I lucked out. He ordered me their trademark fish taco and I also got a tuna taco. Both were incredible! I definitely would have waited in line and will next time I'm there!

Tried the burritos - vegetarian and chicken together with the pork and kimchi grango. We also went for a couple of fish tacos. Wow. Really good. Tasty and a good sized helping. We had some freshies. Mint and lime and watermelon. All good. Only thing is the wait due to its popularity. Waited nearly an hour around 1pm. Went back... More
