“Cheap, easy, and DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

I've been to Mexico three summers in a row, and after the first summer when we stumbled upon this restaurant by accident, we have made it a point to stop there each time. This is definitely not a five star restaurant! Everything is sort of chaotic and disorganized, and there's not a giant array of seating. But it is very easy to access--right off Scenic Highway 1, and on the way down from or up to the US border. It's also right near the beach. I personally haven't tried the fish tacos, but my friends say they are to die for. I have had the carne tacos and they are incredible. Everything is so cheap also! Drinks are less than $1. Tacos are $1 and very large. Food is also very safe, which is important in Mexico. Don't miss this place!

“One of my favorites!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Along with Carnitas Michoacan in Lincoln Heights, El Taurino in LA and King Taco this is one of my favorite taco spots. The tortas are good too! You don't come here for service, just for the food. Most of the time I'm standing on the counter and picking the radishes straight out of the stacks. It's no frills, they still operate on the honor system. You order, or in most cases, shout out your order, eat, order more if you want, get a drink from the drink counter when you get thirsty, and then go up to the cashier and tell her what you've ordered.

Very popular with locals and travelers. Tacos of all types - adobada, carne asada, birria, fish and more. Open pretty much day and night, 7 days a week.
