Where are the best fish tacos in SD?

Going to San Diego for the 4th weekend. Where can I get some awesome fish tacos? Or any good eats near the Sea World area?

  1. Mariscos German and Mariscos Godoy have the best fish tacos but they aren't particularly near Sea World. Is that where you're staying? Will you have transportation (and are willing to drive)?

      Yeah, we are staying near Sea World. We have a car, but I don't want to go too far. Thanks for the suggestions!

    2. The best fish tacos closest to Sea World would probably be a Blue Water Grill on India.

      1. South Beach Bar and Grill has it's detractors on this board, but I really like their lobster, mahi mahi, shark, and wahoo tacos. It is in Ocean Beach which is close to Sea World.

          I can enjoy the fish tacos at South Beach if I get the sauce and salsa on the side. Their fried oyster taco is very good, if you haven't tried it it's worth a shot.

        2. Bay Park Fish Company across the street from Sea World Drive/I-5 on Morena blvd..
          They have a happy hour and great fish tacos..
          JV's Mexican food near Sea World/USD is excellent too..

            The smoked fish salad plate is also excellent at BPFC. Kirk K turned me on to it (it was the missus' favorite for a while).

          2. Blue water, Blue water, Blue water.... Hands down...

            It's maybe 4 exits south on the 5 from Sea World.

            As well if you want real close to Sea World, right down the way in Point Loma is Wahoo's Taco's. Not the best...but good.

            Though I will say I've driven by the Bay Park place and am curious to try it.
