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.
