A customer referred me here and the tacos and taquitos are pretty good. Very simple menu and bare bones taco. There is a salsa bar. The prices are great. Water, horchata and punch are the beverages. You can eat inside or on the patio. A rating on the window. Simple but tasty.

Maybe it's just me but I feel simple got replaced with too minimal. The fish was very good, sweet and great portion. I guess I just expected a bit more topping/garnish as part of the playing and not just little plastic cups on the side.

Been coming for years. Simple but amazing food. The variety and quality of the salsa bar is what makes this place so special. And the fish tacos are only 1.95 which makes it a steal.

So I think I have actually have had the Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada (pretty they are at Tacos Mi Ranchito la Fenix) so seeing the name of this place I was immediately curious. Similar vibe to all the taco places in Ensenada in that it’s a DIY affair: they give you the tortilla and double-fried nuggets of fish or... More

Four fried fish tacos ordered fresh with a plethora of homemade salsa to select from. My favorite was the mild salsa and hot avocado salsa. There is an outside sitting area and some seating inside of the restaurant.

They have a variety of salsas, from mild to hot. Cabbage for garnish. The inside area is roomy with a high table and counters along the walls. They also have an... More

Stumbled upon this place by accident, but glad I did. It looks a little sketchy from the outside, but I find those are the kind of places that often have great Mexican food! Parking was easy to find on the street nearby. This place does fish tacos. The price was good. I had two fish tacos, a potato taco, and... More

Wish I was there now! Fantastic fish tacos! It's small but not too small. Great sides/sauce counter. Outside seating makes for a cool lunch stop.

I'm not sure how this place has high ratings. The place was not cleaned. There are only 3 items on the menu: fish, shrimp and something else. They serve your tacos with just your meat on a tortilla. They have a very DIRTY buffet line filled with salsas and lettuce. The lettuce was in a hung bowl and I had... More

The thought of owning a restaurant was never part of the equation. We wanted to create the perfect baja style fish taco stand. If you desire a wonderful fish taco served to you in the classic baja style and in a friendly, warm environment, you’ll find it here.
