“Scrumptious!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We ate at the Ocean Beach location while staying at the Ocean Beach Hotel. Had fish and shrimp tacos that were absolutely amazing! Large selection, very fresh and neighborhood friendly. Make sure to try the sauces!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Oscar's was recommended to us while on our trip to San Diego. Oscar's was outstanding! Best fish tacos and ceviche around. Would have gone there every day had it been closer to where we were staying. If you have a craving for some fresh, tasty Mexican food, Oscar's is the place to go. Miss it already!

“FishandShrimptastico!!!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Everything was wonderful at this place! Good cantaloupe fresca!!
The guys were nice the food was Fantastico!!
If you love ceviche and fish you'll love Oscar's!
I have 5 kids and we all loved it and its Affordable which is key
When you have a big family!!
My kids love shrimp and fish so this was perfect for us!
They serve tostadas with the ceviche but if your like us and prefer saltine crackers theirs an Albertsons across the way to pick those up and the beer while you wait!
We took ours to go!! Yummy!!

“Better than El Pescador”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Good choice for some seafood tacos. Friendly service, fresh produce, and choice of catch of the day (eg octopus!). I thought the smoked marlin taco filling was a little too salty (and it isn't pieces of marlin, it's a mash of marlin, onion and cilantro). So I wouldn't order that again. But there are lots of other options. A funky little hole in the wall. Try one of the aguas frescas, unusual flavors. A few outdoor tables or get them to go for the beach.

Cash only, street parking. Check the website for Happy Hour specials M-Thursday. No phone orders when they are busy.

“Taco crack”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Oscars is amazing. I've tried to keep it to myself for quite some time but..
If there's a parking spot-I stop and it has nothing to do with if I'm hungry because Oscars is amazing. Oscars is a drug but thankfully it's still legal. Everyone I tell about this place sorta shrugs it off and then next thing you know they've sold their house off and spent it all on Oscars tacos.
Spicy Shrimp Taco
Surf and Turf
Smoked Marlin
Combo
Chipotle Sauce
Jamaica and Pineapple Fruit Water
Go sell your House and trade up
for tacos.
