The family has been going here for 30 years - this is a favorite with the high school students for lunch as well. The quality is always there - it is owner operated and he values his customers. Great menu. Salsa bar.

Honestly, I am a little biased in favor of this Taco shop, because it brings sweet memories of when it used to be one of favorite eateries for my daughters about 20 years ago! They both became very accomplished career women in New York (which breaks my heart), but whenever they get a chance to come to San Diego, they reminisce about Rodrigo's Taco Shop and buy their burritos. It would not be an overstatement to say that this family operated place has been the most favorite eatery for over 3,000 students at Mt. Carmel High-School for about 3 decades. And I am sure the strip-mall owners must be very happy with this client who has been paying rent for over 30 years!

If you are not sure where to go to get the best Tacos in Rancho Penasquitos, go to Rodrigo's - have been going there for thirty years. Owned and operated by brothers.

The fish taco actually dragged this one down. The soft corn shell was really tough and was over stuffed. The fish was tough and hard to get the bite without the filling shooting out the back end.

The rolled tacos were very good but the beans and rice were a bit flavorless.
