“Fantastic” , “fresh” Mexican eats are the forte of this affordable, local chain famed for its ceviche, tortas and tacos you can douse with “great sauces” ; the setup is simple – just “order at the counter and hope there is a stool to sit on” – and prepare for lines at peak hours.

So there are 2 oscars locations - the original whole in the wall on Turquoise St where you have to eat on the sidewalk, and the new place with room to sit near the beach. Both are awesome - but somehow the one sitting on the sidewalk seems so authentic I prefer it! Spectacular fish tacos (though the selection isn't huge) paired with awesome sauces. I send tourists here for an authentic SD experience.

This is the second location of the restaurant that I’ve been to. The flavor is consistent however the portion of ceviche was smaller and it’s a cash only place. The wait wasn’t too bad and there is limited street parking.

This place is decent for a no frills joint. Good Mexicali tacos but not as good as I had hoped based on the reviews. Cash Only and price is right - Ceviche seemed to be the best thing on their menu.
