Some of the best street tacos we have tried since we have been in San Diego. Authentic tacos packed with flavor! We brought our dogs and ate on the outdoor patio overlooking the ocean. Pork carnitas taco was our favorite!

Stopped in for dinner and was surprised by the number of families dining. You order at the counter, but they bring the food to you. Delicious fish and seafood tacos. They serve breakfast, too.

We came across this place by accident and were delightfully surprised by the quality of the food. We are from Arizona so are pretty picky about Mexican food. This was just as good as I have ever had.

Living in the area, I have TRIED to give them my business. They have terrible customer service, frozen food, but they do have Horchata on tap :) Skip it. Go to the TACO SHOP or TACO SURF which are both close in either direction.
