“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.

Two words: Fish Tacos. They also have some great ceviche options but they are truly know for their amazing fish tacos. There is often times a line if you anytime after 4 PM, and during lunchtime on the weekends or holidays, so be prepared for that or go earlier in the day. They do offer a Fish Taco Happy Hour with $1 off the tacos during the week (not sure what the hours are but it’s earlier in the day). Not a lot of seating inside the spot so I always get it to go and walk 100ish feet to the cliffs/beach where there are several benches, grassy spots, and the beach itself to sit down while you enjoy your Oscar’s looking at the Pacific Ocean.

Really, really good fish tacos. Very high quality and delicious. They ran out of octopus, adobo sauce and ceviche when we were there, which was very sad. It was also packed, line out of the door and not very clean inside.

Live this place. In my opinion, best tacos in town. They also have cheap and delicious ceviche. Try the octopus taco with shrimp ceviche. You won't regret
