Delicious! Worth the wait of you have the time—the crispy fish burrito was massive—you can easily split it if ya want! They are VERY accommodating to special dietary requests. So glad we went!!

Friendly service but the fish tacos were not good. There wasn't anything Mexican about them - just deep fried fish in a tortilla with way too much chipotle mayo. We waited an hour to get our tacos once they were ordered and we were so disappointed. The whole time looking in to the truck window we could see how much sauce was being put on everything (WAY too much).

So people kept saying “just go to tacofino” - friends, the guy at the car rental place, the guy who sold me my fleece in Ottawa. I get it now. Had the tuna and yam tacos. Perfectly seared tuna. Crisp cabbage. Gorgeous soft tortilla. Very reasonable for what you get. Picnic tables in this little roadside place (a few other cute places there - walk around).

Honestly the best tacos I have ever had.

Unbelievably amazing food! Well worth the hour wait! It’s obvious that it’s great, when you arrive all of the locals are there!

You really don't need another review that tells you just how awesome this place is. You just need to go here and eat. The fish tacos are exceptional. Everything is fresh, the taco shells are simply delicious and the consistency of their food should be the envy of many. Always fantastic.
