Ensenada has the fame for having the BEST TACOS in all of Mexico, I have eaten Tacos in different States / Cities and the Tacos I have eaten at EL TRAILERO are by far the BEST ONES !

Well the tacos were good but a bit expensive, of course it's in a tourist spot so I guess you expect that. I was driving up from San Quentin and it was nice place to eat before I drove back to Tijuana. The pastor taco were excellent!

Street tacos and tortas are endemic on my trips to Baja - and I've been eating here for over 10 years! Even after their remodeling and expansion the food quality, friendly cooks, and great location keep me coming back. And I bring friends! They love it but still haven't parsed how to get your order in when the crowd is... More

REAL authentic Mexican food is honestly to God the best in the world....one of the best. One of my faves! Pretty much most walk up taco shops in the area won't let you down. Do yourself a favor and enjoy these babies. I can eat way more than I should simply from enjoying the flavor.

This is a fun place, with lots going on all the time. Food is great with lots of choices. An added bonus: if you park in back, you may be able to get your car washed while your eat.

Great taco stand, very convenient. Fascinating setup with scores of people churning out tacos and toppings at the speed of light. Kind of like a Mexico City taqueria with vats of meat separated out by type ready to be made into tacos. The part that we cannot seem to match here in the US is the tortillas. The freshness and...

Conveniently located right on the main road. A big benefit of this taco stand is that they have so many kinds of tacos and they have lots of people working. Everyone in your group can get what they want and get it fast (for a taco stand). They also are generous with their toppings, even guacamole. Yum!

Stop here is you can! It's a little north of Ensenada but worth it. The tortas are amazing and be sure to watch how the bread is processed in the kitchen. Tortillas for the tacos are also only seconds old by the time you get them. Careful of the jalapeños as my buddy found out! The big news is there... More

The tacos are delicious! The only thing is that they are more expensive than the taco place crossing the street and I don't think is that worth it.
