“Try it! You will like it! Our favorite taco stand for years now.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Located off Fortuna Road in Yuma Foothills. Tucked away at the back of a big lot.
Outdoor taco stand with shaded areas to sit and enjoy their offerings. Yes this is on the back edge of a gravelled lot and you will always see cars parked there. (Note: Closed on Sundays).

While we have tried a number of the offerings, our favorite is their shrimp taco on a flour tortilla.
Always friendly service and good food. Sometimes you'll encounter line ups at the main meal hours.
Read this and the other reviews, then go try Tacos El Cositas.

“Muey Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

We went there on a recommendation of friends. There were 6 of us and we all had different tacos. Loved the fish tacos, another said the carne was the best and another loved the shrimp. All I can say is that this is the best street tacos ever. Owners sure work hard to keep the food coming.

“What a find!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

We were introduced to this taco stand last year and just keep coming back bringing more friends. The fish and shrimp tacos are as good as we have ever had. The owners are very friendly and keep the food coming. Very nice salsa bar too. The only concern is that sometimes it is hard to find a table in the shade. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

“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.
