Best Mexican Taco Trucks!

maryambaker Nov 19, 2012 04:05 PM

Any new Mexican taco truck discoveries? In Chula Vista a wrong turn off I-5 onto Avenue L led me to the Toys-R-Us parking lot and a Mexican seafood taco truck which I believe is even better than Mariscos German (my former taco truck benchmark). The truck seems to be in the parking lot all day; it's not hard to spot. The shrimp tacos (and all of the tacos so far) are ocean fresh and wonderful and they are very cheap. Also there is a complimentary fish broth which is fantastic ($1 for refills). Another thing that is very nice for those who don't carry cash is the fact that Mastercard and Visa are accepted here.

    Ah...the epiphymous Tacos El Pescador truck!! Arguably the best fish taco truck in San Diego county.

    And across the parking lot is the Torta Ahogada truck, the only one doing that Guadalajaran specialty properly.

        I tried the Calbi Taco Truck two weeks ago and LOVED it. Korean BBQ meets tacos and quesadillas.
