“OK this place is the Bomb!!!!”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Been going for for ages - this place has a small menu but everything is done so well. so fresh and in small batches. Hands down the best fried fish tacos in town. Best re-fried beans ever. For reals though, try the bean and cheese burrito with onions and cilantro and have them put the salsa on the side for dipping. Best Bean and cheese burrito ever, ever ever, and try the fish tacos. Also pretty darn amazing breakfast burritos -

“Holy Grail of fish tacos!”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 via mobile

This place is a tiny whole in the wall type of place. Limited seating but the BEST fish tacos I have ever had. They hand batter and fry the fish to order and they are unbelievable. The fish tacos are big, I got the 2 taco combo with rice and barely finished half of the rice. Stick with just one taco and rice or 2 tacos and you will be satisfied for sure! The market next door is pretty sketchy, too bad it detracts from the restaurant. Just keep an eye out and enjoy your meal. WOW!!!!!!

“Best Beer Battered Fish Taco I have ever had.”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

I live in Phoenix and my cravings for these fish tacos are sometimes strong enough to make me consider driving 6 hours for them. These are THE BEST Beer Battered Fish Taco's I have EVER had. The downside - only takes cash.
