I could eat here once a day easily. It's a local favorite for the surfers ( there's a famous surf break close by). I used to only get the tacos but once I tried the tortas it became a go to for every visit. There are only two items on the menu, tacos and, you guessed it, tortas. They always... More

Visited this stand on the way back to the states, and kept ordering more. The tacos are amazing - the best I had the whole trip! 😍🌮

Carnitas and al pastor tacos were amazing! Taco surf was our last quick bite before heading back over the boarder. Worth every bite 🌮😊

This spot is famously know as K38 Tacos ..but they also sell tortas yummy ! Meat selections (asada /al pastor ) On busy holidays or to avoid the traffic in Downtown Rosarito. This place Closes at sunset so make it there before . My Personal Favorite is Torta Mixta - Sandwich with both asada and al pastor meats BOM.

one of the most popular street taco sites south of Calafia. Carne asada is the ticket but they also offer pork tacos.

simply delicious tacos. Nothing else to say about it. Everything is a dollar and it will be some of the best tacos you have ever eaten. Tiny little stand-room for about 5 people to sit and eat at the bar. Yummy yummy yummy. Don't miss out. Look for the giant Jesus statue and you are there.

I had not eaten an authentic pastor taco in over 10 years (and not without trying.......) This surfer vibe taco stand serves delicious tacos and the pastor is tender, juicy and exactly as my memory served! The carne asada cooks on the bar. Completely worth the stop. No shoes required.
