Tacos el Yaqui has been a favorite for years and it never fails to please. The perones are delicious and very spicy, the quesadillas are tasty and simple. This is a simple place that is bustling with locals as well; as tourists in the know.

My son and I stopped in just before noon to the usual 10-15 person deep line. Rosarito small town noticed the regulars in line, whose orders were invisibly expedited. The charm of the original painted plywood clad, 2x4 shed kitchen and blue poly tarped roof is replaced with a well designed, corrugated roof structure, stucco/ cement Kitchen and envious wood...

Lines can be a bit of a wait, but so worth it if you can't return later or next day! If you can eat two of these, you must have quite an appetite!
