Tachos Fish Tacos

Carretera Libre Rosarito-Ensenada
Km 38
Rosarito, Baja California

This is not your average fish taco stand. Tacho’s son maintains his dad’s legacy and the family touch on quality Baja
California seafood. The fish tacos are really good (they actually use a little shark instead of the traditional Cazon fish, which gives it a more robust flavor) and the shrimp taco as well. Ceviche, shrimp burritos, tostadas and much more are part of the extensive menu of this place located right next to the inFamous k38 surfing spot. What better way to enjoy a hot summer day than with a great shrimp taco and a cold ice beer?

TIP:  Don’t leave without getting the chipotle fish taco!

Tacos Marco Antonio

Av. Rayón No. 351, between Tercera y Cuarta
Ensenada, Baja California

Arguably the best fish tacos in Baja. This place has amazing seafood tacos and al pastor smoked marlin tostadas. To keep high-quality standards they keep an eye on quality control and an acute attention to detail. The shrimp cracklings taco is a must and so are the aguas frescas!

TIP: Not to mention, you can ask for your tacos to be breaded instead of battered.

Villas de Rosarito
22710 Rosarito, B.C.

The most popular fish tacos in Rosarito, a long-standing tradition of the area.  Moreover, this is more of a restaurant than a taco stand and therefore offer a wider variety of dishes. Dishes include marlin and octopus tacos, ceviche tostadas with a side of hot seafood soup, excellent for curing those dreadful Rosarito hangovers.

TIP: The Quesaron taco (Shrimp + Cheese)  with flour tortilla is a must try in here.

Boulevard Benito Juarez #97-A Zona Centro

As a fairly recent place, this new taco joint already has a long line of followers. Also located in downtown Rosarito, the batter of the tacos here is a little bit different than the rest, as they add chillis to baste the shrimp and fish. Highly recommended if you are visiting Rosarito.
