Taco Surf (The Original)

Taco Surf SignA must stop! You’ll find the stand with a small counter/bar and about 5 stools. Atmosphere isn’t really a word I’d use to describe it, but “friendly people, great service, great food and great value” taco-surf-grilldefinitely are terms I’d use. In all the years we’ve been customers for lunch or a light evening meal, they have never disappointed us. They serve only carne asada (steak) and al pastor (pork) tacos and tort as.

There is, however, a small stand just south of them (K38 Fish Tacos) that does have fish tacos. The one withtaco-surf-grill-master fish isn’t the same operation as Surf Taco, but you can access it from th
e same parking lot. Their fish and shrimp tacos are excellent.

There is a small market between the two to purchase drinks/beer. Tacos run about $1.10 and tortas are about $3. Try mixing the asada and al pastor to mix things up.Taco-Surf-Torta

If you don’t stop here during your visit to Baja, you’ll be doing yourself a great disservice. Our family loves Taco Surf so much El-Pastor-Tacoswe bought the original surfing taco sign and hung it in the downstairs bedroom of Endless Summer Villa.

No other taco stand comes close to taste and service.  Taco Surf is located 1 kilometer north of Las Gaviotas, in front of the statue of Jesus.Endless Summer Villa Taco Surf Sign


Tacos Baja Jr.

Fish-TacoTacos Baja Jr. seafood restaurant started in a small trailer 15 years ago and has expand to a full service restaurant.

The fish tacos here are the best in Rosarito and Ensenada – both of which are known for fish tacos.  Our favorite is the “Quesaron” which is a grilled shrimp taco with melted white cheese and shredded cabbage.



Their “Baja Fish Taco” has a generous amount of grilled fish, a grilled green chile and a small amount of melted white cheese – Totally different from the traditional tacos and every bit as delicious if you crave a lighter, slightly spicy fish taco.

Great service and reasonable prices.
