This location is alright, although the service is horrible (very slow and disorganized) the food itself is average. If I was in the area and was not too picky about quality Mexican food this place would meet that requirement. This is more of a hybrid Mexican restaurant combing American style with Mexican style food. The problem is neither side wins... More

Simply awesome tacos. We tried the tri-tip, carnitas, fish, and shrimp tacos. All four were great! The location can't be beat. We liked it so much we came back the next day for a last minute lunch before heading south.

Nestled across the street from the beach is another local spot with fresh and authentic Mexican food. Tacos and burritos the specialty here for sure. A little pricey but worry it.

This eclectic little taco restaurant was one of those great travel finds. Super friendly service and the server even showed me photos of the beach after a recent hail storm. Ordered a fish and shrimp taco and they came out fast. Comfortable little patio out front afforded a great view of the ocean and the Huntington Beach Pier (which is... More

I don't know what they put in those steak tacos but it is pure heaven. I've eaten hundreds of tacos in my life if not thousands. This place has steak that strangely tastes like. Well idk. Jack links beef jerky rehydrated in a soy mirin asian broth. I mean that in the BEST way.

If you're in the area and looking for great tacos, you must visit this place. They were absolutely delicious. Neat atmosphere right across from the beach. The employees were super friendly. Go and thank me later.

Out for a stroll in the rain, we've seen this place a few times and finally stopped in. Why did we wait so long? I had the shrimp tacos, loaded with shrimp, the crema they drizzled on was quite tasty, my husband had a marinated tri tip and a fish taco, no skimping here either. I know tacos and this... More

Many locals walk to this restaurant. Very friendly neighborhoodI I always enjoy the friendly people while enjoying breakfast or a couple of fish aces. Love the salsa spices.

Great beach side spot. Looked busy at lunch and it didn't disappoint. Try the fish or shrimp... don't forget the nachos. The cilantro and slaw top everything off nicely. Sancho's won't break the bank either. Good value for sure. When in Huntington Beach-ENJOY!
