The fish is fresh and the price is right. Shimp tacos are also good. the salsas are good. Service is quick and efficient.

“Cheap Deliciousness”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

I live right around the corner from this awesome little Taco joint. The menu is basic but the fish, shrimp, or potato tacos are cheap and delicious, and you'll probably pick up life philosophy from the owner if he's manning the register when you visit. The place hosts a comedy show twice a month these days where you can see up and coming as well as veteran talent for free. An awesome neighborhood treat, especially if you're broke.

“Joseph is da man!”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Joseph runs this place, and he's a guy who deals strictly from the heart.

His food never fails to delight, and we always make a special trip to go there (been going regularly for a long while - actually since he opened this location).

I'm known among friends as 'Taco Jones' because I can always find good if not great acos, and I know all the best places in the towns I travel in down in Mexico.

I have a few joints that I make it my biz to hit when in Los, and this is the one that is *always* on my list. Fresh salsas, radish salsa, great shrimp tacos, great papas tacos.

The inside deco has changed, but is still sort-of the same - I miss the old surfboards on the walls. The place has an ambiance all its own (very reminiscent of Mexcio), with a great little outdoor patio - and a cool thing is that they use those molded plastic chairs that after awhile wind up collapsing. So they've bound two of the chairs together to make sure you stay seated and close to the great tacos! Kind of a "there I fixed it" moment... and not just a few chairs - *all* of them.

So, look, just ignore the few naysayers - they either prefer a different type of taco, or they ain't in the game. If you've been to Ensenada, and you miss the taste of real Ensenada fish tacos, then this is the place you're looking for.

(If I could, I'd live upstairs from this place.)

“these are truely the best fish tacos anywhere!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

this is a sleeper! it looks like just another hole in the wall taco stand-but don't be fooled as they produce a very delicious taco of fish or potato at an extremely fair price. their salsa bar had many choices and the staff was efficient in producing tacos to order at a rapid rate and high volume! the fish taco i had was by far the best i have ever had. you must visit this place and try the food. the only downfall is that parking spaces are not too plentiful.
