This is a well known shop and the Tacos I had proved to be outstanding. I had snapper, beef(sirloin chunks) and shrimp tacos. They were very fresh with heaps of guacamole(with no fillers)and quite large and filling. The chips and salsa were also just right and just the right spiciness for me. The location is very convenient on Mission Blvd.... More

This busy, great eating spot was only a block from our hotel, making it a good choice with no need to get the car out to struggle with finding another parking place in a very busy, popular area. The food is plentiful and really good.

One of my friends grew up in Pacific Beach and recommended that we try it. We walked down the street from our condo to a line out the door. That was cool, we were in no hurry. Once we got in we ordered grilled fish tacos, a surf and turf burrito, some other fresh made goodness and chips and salsa.... More

Lots of choices in the neighborhood, but this place has my vote for the best fish tacos, chips and salsa AND breakfast burritos (all day long!) Love grabbing a couple of tacos and heading a block down to the beach to watch the sunset :)

Not much inthe way of ambience , but the chichen taco was huge, fresh, an had an excellent flavor. The salsa is sort of like a hot sauce, not like a chunky salsa, but hot and with a very good flavor. The chips were freshly made, but unfortunately, about half of my bag were broken small pieces of chips. Otherwise,... More

This place gets a lot of local traffic and I know why. Great food, cheap prices, good guac and homemade chips. I had the blacked mahi mahi fish tacos which were delicious. Great homemade sauces puts the cream on top. The only rub was no beer.

This restaurant serves some legitimate Cal/Mexico food. You can smell the grease and the lard once you walk into the restaurant. The tacos are simply DELICIOUS.

Good food, good service, and very popular place to refuel. They have quite a extensive menu and the food is worth the wait. Thanks

This is our favorite for California burritos, Carne Asada fries, Chilaquiles, Beef Enchiladas, etc, etc! It has cool decor- surf boards covering the ceiling, and a TV with surfing videos playing. The salsa is hot, and I love hot salsa, so if you don't, ask for mild.
