Taco truck in Santa Monica

Driving to Santa Monica from Santa Barbara today and looking for a taco truck recommendation. Love carnitas and a good dish taco. Thanks in advance!

  1. Mexican Seafood La Isla Bonita truck on Rose and 3rd St in Venice (near Google) at the Santa Monica border. They have carnitas tacos too. Usually there till around 3pm

        Thanks! Also, I meant a good "fish" taco, not dish taco. ;)

    1. Not a truck, but you might consider Taco Punta Cabras, especially for fish tacos.

      1. Why specifically a truck? As Ogawak mentioned, TPC is great for Baja-style fish tacos. They also serve coctels, but I prefer La Playita on Lincoln near the SM/Venice border for their seafood cocktails. La Playita also has meat tacos (carnitas, carne asada, al pastor, chicharrones, lengua, etc.).

        1. A little late, but Tacos por Favor, while not a truck, is the best.
