My partner loves fish tacos so we look places when we travel. These are not the best fish tacos we have had, but the variety of tacos and the prices are fantastic. I also tried some of the other things on the menu (pozole and tacos al pastor) and they were also very good. I grew up eating home made... More

Everything is fresh & hand made to order. We've never had a taco we didn't love. Fish tacos are a refreshing change from carnitas for me (although I love carnitas).

Very down to earth, (basic tables and benches). There are about 10 different sauces to put on what you ordered. I can speak for the salmon tropical salad. Delcious. Very fresh tropic fruit and salmon cooked perfectly. It is possible to order the fish to be cooked in a number of different ways, and there is a larger variety of... More

My cousins took me here when I visited them in Pasadena. On their recommendation, I had the shrimp and scallop burrito. Sooo good. (In context: I used to live in San Francisco so even if I am based on Asia where we don't get good burritos, I know what one should taste like.) They ordered more food but I couldn't... More

Senior Fish in South Pasadena is located on Mission St. The seating area is very spacious and decorated with beautiful photos of Mexico. Food is great. My favorite is fish (grilled or battered) taco, beet salad, fish & chips, and chicken Quesadilla. They have self-serving condiments and sauce area.

Senor Fish is across from the Trader Joe's in South Pasadena. It's fresh, tasty and has a large menu from which to choose. I loved the pastor tostada. We got take-out or ate there three times while in the area for a two-week period.

While this isn't the best Mexican, and definitely not the most authentic, it is tasty and not too expensive. The best items I've had (and I've had many here!) are of course the fish tacos, the cocido (soup), and the al pastor (marinated pork) burrito. Carne asada is OK if you don't eat pork. The salsa bar has a huge... More

We've been here many times over the last two years, always excellent food. This is a very casual place with a friendly staff. You order at a front window and take a seat. They bring the food to you. I usually get their veggie burrito, which is large and excellent. We also get an order of the guacamole and chips.... More

Ok, so their shrimp and scallop burrito is incredible. Best burrito I've ever had, but they have a varied menu that can please just about anyone. I like their carnitas, as well as their asada. The place is super casual and relaxed. Always reliable and great for those nights when cooking seems like too much effort.

What a find! We heard about Seňor Fish via Anthony Bourdain’s review of the Sunset Blvd location which has now closed. The menu is really extensive so it was hard to pick. I went with the two taco lunch for about $7. I had one fish taco and one veggie taco plus rice and beans. Great value and terrific food.... More
