If you're your by the zoo and looking for some quick delicious shrimp, fish and scallop tacos this is the place. The spicy shrimp tacos were awesome. Had the fisherman's torta which was awesome packed with fish, shrimp, scallop alvocados and cheese. Haven't had a sandwich like that before and it's a definite must stop the next time I'm in San Diego.

I had the breaded fish taco (the San Diego classic) and the Taco Especial (mixed seafood). Both were generously made with wonderfully fresh and delicious ingredients. The three house sauces provided on the side were all excellent. And the free fruit waters were a delicious surprise. I loved the pineapple water! This is my new favorite place for tacos!

Read about this place before a trip to La Jolla. All of the reviews were good so we decided to check it out. It really is a hole-in-the-wall with minimal seating. We had battered fish and shrimp tacos and shrimp ceviche and all was delicious. If you want a beer to go with your food, you're going to have to get your food first and then walk down to the West End bar on the corner. You can take your food inside-they don't mind.

Excellent fish tacos, which are a must in San Diego. I highly recommend eating at Oscar's. My husband and son voted this as their fav food in SD!

Meals prepared to order, so expect to wait. Limited seating, all outdoors along the roadside. Menu mostly of tacos, ceviche... Very good food. Not best Mexican food overall, but good at what they do. Think very good food truck in permanent location.
