Best tacos in Rosarito. I recommend the tacos perrones, which come with grilled meat, beans, cheese, salsa, and guacamole. There can be a long line, but it's worth it. Down the street from Rosarito Beach Hotel.

Best fish tacos in town. Also fresh ceviche and shrimp tacos. It's not an indoor restaurant--just outdoor plastic seating. Can't beat the cold beers & fresh fish tacos. Located off the toll road at K-38, south of Rosarito & right across the street from the huge statue of Jesus on the hill.
