“As Authentic As It Gets (on this side of the border)!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

I don't know why it's so hard for a lot of people to try a meal from a food truck! This place is exactly like the open air street joints in Mexico (where everyone eats, all day long) - if you think Mexicans are immune to germs and like eating spoiled foods, you are incorrect - the trick to finding the best street food (in Mexico or here) is to go to the ones with long lines waited to be served. And El Cositas always has folks waiting. My only regret is the limited menu, but I hear from others that if you ask what else they have today (their English is as good as their Spanish), they'll give you a few more choices.

“Very Nice Taco Stand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

There is a field just south of Hwy 8 at Fortuna that has 3 or 4 taco stands and some other foods that we go to regularly. Never tried this stand before but saw some reviews and decided it should be in the mix. Glad we did! Both the fish and al Pastor tacos are excellent. Also of note is the nice salsa bar. Great casual food for less than $10 for 2 with a drink. We definitely will be back.

“Best Street Tacos Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I love the shrip tacos and pastor as well. I think my favorite thing is they have a great salsa bar with all kinds of goodies to put on your tacos. My boyfriend and I can eat a lot of food here for around $12 and when it's nice outside, it's a fun place to eat.

“Great Fish and Shrimp Tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Don't expect quick service because every meal is cooked to order. Outdoor seating next to Walgreen's, set back on the lot so fairly quiet. People are very friendly, looks like a family run operation. Has a variety of toppings for your tacos, we had fish and shrimp tacos, very fresh and reasonably prices (1.50 - $2.00). They were constantly wiping down the tables, very clean place.
