“Levanta Muertos”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This family business started in a food truck nearly two decades ago, and what made it so good then has remained: some of the simplest, most delicious mariscos in Rosarito. Everything is good. You can't go wrong with anything you order. But in my opinion, the crown jewel is the Caldo de Mariscos, a meaty seafood soup in a simple broth that can raise the dead. Tacos Jr.'s broth is not the tomato-based version that you find everywhere else, rather it's simmered clear and lightly seasoned to absorb the best flavors of the fish, shrimp, clams, calamari and pulpo. Add in the fixin's of cilantro, cebolla y salsa, a dash of red wine from the counter, and you are in for a unique treat. This is a go-tpo hangover cure and one of the best dishes in Rosarito. Eat in and take one home for later - it's that good.

“Consistent and Clean. Love this place.”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Went with the wife for an early dinner after work. She had a plate with shrimp tacos both fried and grilled and a fish taco. I went with asada tacos and ate her fish taco. Excellent! A couple of COLD Bohemias apiece and we were set. Clean dining area and clean bathrooms. Complete package!

“Delicious and authentic soft tacos at a good price”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

The tacos we had, made with shredded beef and carnitas, were delicious. The tortillas were fresh and tasted home-made, the onions were crisp, and there was plenty of cilantro, lime and pico de gallo to go around. It gets very crowded in the late afternoon and early evening, so we went around 8 and found the crowd more manageable. The ever-present diners indicates that it is a real favorite amongst locals, and we were definitely happy and full after our taco meal.

“Amazing Casseron taco”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

You haven't experienced a real shrimp taco until you've had the house special here. The Casseron is a must!
