The fish tacos were delicious and ahi was perfect. We split a chicken burrito as well and had more than enough to eat. My favorite drink of our entire 4 days in Tofino was a blended watermelon and basil freshie! AMAZING! Be sure and bring a coat since all the seating is outside!

I thought my sister must be exaggerating; I thought that tacos from a truck in Tofino could be good but the best? She was right, they are unbelievably good - so good that I now think she underplayed her praise!! I had the fish tacos (2 was a perfect amount for lunch); MK had seared tuna in one and local...

I've been trying to find a really good fish taco that lives up to the ones I had on Isla Mujeres a number of years ago but all of them have fallen short...until I ate at Tacofino. These are the best fish tacos north of the Mexican border!

We found this place and it made our trip exceptional. The bus has about 5 windows and a head pops out at intervals to take orders, money, and give out exceptional food and fruit smoothie drinks. Located in back lot of several businesses serving surfers...just off highway. We had best of our old lives fish taco and also tuna taco.... More

Great! In the back of a strange looking parking lot, seems like the meeting point of a secret sect, and then you meet everyone you already have seen around in Tofino there again. Went there several times, and it was always good!

The food was amazing. We had the fish taco, bean burrito and a chicken gringas. Great food and an even better vibe. So glad we found you!

Awesome burrito! If I had the time, I would definitely have tried their entire menu! Wilk absolutely visit again if I'm in Tofino (or even Vancouver Island)!

One of the best things we had in Tofino! We ordered the fish taco, took a little while to be made but mostly because there were a lot of orders in front of us. Delicious and great value! Tofino kombucha was really good too through a bit pricey (as kombucha usually is).

Insanely good tacos and drinks. I used to live in Mexico and these tacos are even better! Try the beef tacos and the lime mint drink. Staff are friendly and the service is fast! This place should not be missed when in town.
