There are many taco stands throughout Ensenada, but look for the one run by a short lady and her helper. The stand is called Taco Coquis and is usually located straight up from the giant flag in the harbor. You can carne asada, fish, chicken or shrimp and they are only $1. I am not sure what exactly they do,... More

La Guerrerense tostada stand. Amazing Seafood, fresh, fresh, fresh. Av. Adolpho López Mateos . This is a much do as part of your visit to Ensenada if you are a foodie. It is simple and amazing. There is a reason people rave about this place and get here before 2pm if you can.

Why not try them all - you have such a variety of vendors - look for the stand that has many locals - they know the best places to eat.

Fish, beef or pork wrapped in a tortilla of your choice and cooked to order with a stunning array of toppings and garnishes - fresh fast food doesn't get much better than this ... I wasn't brave enough to try the tripe or cows head versions though (but then neither were most of the local customers)! As for value, the... More

Remember, the favorite hours for tacos are between 2 - 4 PM and especially from 7 - 9PM. A taqueria only stays in business (has customers) if the food has been proven safe and delicious. Busy stands guarantee both points. Mexicans are not nice to the stand owner if the food turns out to be bad. The stand owners know... More

The food is fresh, amazingly tasty, and is prepared quickly. I was skeptical about how good food could be that comes out of a push cart, but I have to say, I'm a believer now!

Variety of tacos from the street taco stands is a heritage and a treat. So good, life made simple, and very easy on the pocket book.
