I ordered 2 carne asada tacos and an al pastor taco. Within minutes, laid out in front of me was a plate of onions and cilantro, a bowl of sliced limes, radishes, shredded lettuce, 5 bowls of salsa, and a plate of chips. I was in heaven as I sampled every salsa with a fresh tortilla chip. My main focus... More

Whenever my cruise ship docks in Ensenada. I start salivating and dreaming of tacos from this place. They have never let me down. I love the pastor and the fish tacos. Reasonably priced, great service, and fantastic food made fresh before your eyes. This is the real deal!

Taco Time! Very good. Viva Mexico. I am surprised they do not need a wall to keep the US out, lol. Friendly courteous people serving delicious fresh food. I had Al Pastor and Polo Tacos. Four each. Yes a little over the top, why not? I had water but there is beer a plenty. A wide range of salsa on... More

Love coming here and sitting at the bar watching our tacos or burritos being made. You get to dress them as you wish with the plentiful condiments offered. We love the shaved (red) pork that cooks on a spit- soooo tasty!! There are some tables in the back, but the bar is the place to sit.

Crowded each of the three mornings I went there for breakfast. Many locals and their families frequent this cafe. Orange juice was fresh squeezed, (The breakfasts were included with the stay at a local hotel (1/2 block away).

A friend of ours with extensive experience in Ensenada took us here a couple months back. It was great then and we wanted to go back and try it again. We took family with us. Parking was at a premium but on of the guys put us right in front in the Taxi zone. We got seats at the counter... More

This Taqueria, next to Hussong's, is open til the wee hours serving simple tacos, quesadillas and conos filled with tasty beans. And, oh yes, lots of cerveza & maybe a shot or two of tequila. The prices are ridiculously barata, the guys are entertaining, and it's "open air" ambiance keeps an eye out for street doings. A must visit &... More

On another quick cruise to Ensenada we brought along some family this time to our favorite little Taqueria. This time we left the ship about 11am so as to avoid last year's blunder of arriving too early and ended up there about 11:30am. It's so easy to find once you've been there, we didn't even bring a map. When coming... More
