I have eaten fish and chips all up and down the East, West and Gulf Coasts. While I can not definitively say this place has the very best fish and chips I have ever eaten, I can say it has the best I have had in a long while. The quality of fish is very high, the breading is seasoned... More

Fast, friendly service and the fish and chips were fantastic!! Even though it's a food truck, you will not be disappointed. They even come out and check on the people dining.

The food truck was friendly and they checked on customers to make sure they enjoyed their meal. Besides the stellar fish n chips, they have fish tacos. They are located in a food truck park with lots of cuisines to choose from nearby.

I will start by saying call them before visiting them on a rainy day. We came on a Wednesday during a light rain in February and they were closed :(. We heard about Codmother's from TripAdvisor. I LOVE good F&C and was not disappointed. The prices are about $5 or more cheaper than The Fisherman's Wharf because they have low... More

Great fish & chips,at a reasonable price, using fish from sustainable sources. As it is a food truck you need to check opening times as we returned one evening to find it closed. Recommended.

I heard about the cod mother on Instagram and thought we would check it out. It surely did not disappoint my husband I shared the two-piece cod fish and chips as you can see they were ginormous Friendly staff and very quick!! I highly recommend it!

Codmother is a small outdoor eatery with picnic tables for seating. What it lacks in decor is superseded by tasty food. The menu is limited with fish and chips, fish tacos and shrimp tacos; but the portions are decent and the tastiness unquestionable.

This is why great businesses succeed. A great product...2 large pieces of battered fresh cod with fries and 2 healthy size fish tacos with Baja sauce for under $20. Served with a smile and call out as beautiful people (as she does to everyone) Just go. And enjoy.

There's a lot of hype for this place - and it did not disappoint. The service was warm, friendly, and efficient, and the food delicious! The fried fish was everything I was hoping - flavorful, crispy, and not too greasy; the shrimp tacos were unbelievable, crispy, with a sauce that's to die for, and so many versions of homemade fries...

I wanted to try this place on a recent trip to san francisco and decided to go there for lunch after a morning's sightseeing. This is basically a food trailer serving the best fish and chips I have ever had outside the U.K. the clients were a mixed and varied bunch, but every comment I heard was a good one.... More
