Need Good Tacqueria in Carlsbad Area

Will be visiting Carlsbad soon. Looking for a good tacqueria in the Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside area for tacos or burritos. I live in Westside L.A. and like Tacos Por Favor and Tacqueria Sanchez up here. Hoping to find some good carne asada or carnitas, and if it isn't too much to hope for, al pastor from a rotisserie or spit. A great salsa roja would round things out.

For those of you down in the San Diego area coming up here, I recommend those above and advise you to check out Bandini's "The Great Taco Hunt" blog on blogspot. Please let me know if there is something similar for San Diego. Thanks.

  1. Juanita's Tacos in Leucadia. It's at the stop sign just before you go down the hill into Encinitas. The sign has a larger name I can't remember, but something that's half a mile long and begins with 'TL'. Not too many words begin with 'TL', so that should be of help. At any rate, they're famous for their fish tacos, but other items seem pretty good too. A more formal-type restaurant would be "La Especial Norte". Try a mango margarita. BTW, I know someone else wrote something just like what I'm writing now last time I checked on the 'old' chowhound.

    1. Juanita's Taco Shop - Tepatitlan
      Great fish tacos and chile relleno's.
