The tacos are fabulous and big! Home made tortilla chips, everything is authentic. You'll have to wait in line, but it is worth the wait.

If you have not met Normita herself and her small bit mighty team at Normitas. Then this week is the time. Known for their breakfast tacos and burritos made fresh to order. They also have incredible fish tacos. Tasty food made with love.

I'd definitely recommend if you're looking for something great and fast after Huntington Beach were it's not big deal if you're covered in sand. Outdoor seating... More

Best fish tacos. Small menu that is perfect. Combos include rice beans chips and salsas. Not expensive. Great value. Highly recommended. Eat at picnic tables by parking lot. Get drinks at liquor store next door. Fun and tasty.

Well I like to bring my dog and come here before a beach walk, or better - afterwards. There's always a wait and you are going to wait for your delicious food. This is one of those local spots that you don't want to just drive past. Whether you come with friends or just your doggy friend, be prepared to... More
