    I am off the coast of cancun and had fish tacos for the first time the meal was bomb! I always thought they would be gross. Oh how wrong I was. Anyone have any fish taco stories or recommendations on where to get some of these delicious treats? FYI place I went to was mango cafe

    The best that I ever had were in South Padre Island. I don't remember the name of the restaurant. The second best were at a place called "La Tuna" in San Antonio. I go there at lunch from time to time to get them.

    Papas and Beer in Asheville is awesome for Fish Tacos.

    I thought that the Papas and Beer in Rosarito, BC was the only one.

    Thats a nightclub right?

    P&B in Ashville NC is unrelated I believe. -except it is Mexican owned -and an 1-2 hour wait to get in on almost every night.

    The first time I eer had fish Tacos was at the Mad Mex in State College PA. They was real good. When I came back to civilization, I went seeking some. I started eating them at the Houlihan's on Rte 4 in Paramus NJ. But now I live in NYC, and they dont have it anywhere.

    It is important to use the right fish, and batter. The fish pieces needs to be juicy, so the fish needs to be as fresh as possible.

    I had fish taco stories when I was 13. I used to make my friends smell my fingers.

    Whenever I hear something crazy like fish tacos I usually say, 'anything that sounds that nasty has to be good.'

    In fact, the nastier it sounds the better it probably is, if it's still selling well.

    I several friends/coworkers with condos and such in Rosarito area etc who don't travel their anymore after the crazy crime spike.

    How bad would that suck to pay on something that you don't use.

    I was there last year - had no problems

    Fish tacos are the best. Sucks you had to wait this long to figure it out. You can get good ones every where in Cali

    Sucks. Their property values must have dropped dramatically. I used to go there all the time in the mid-90's. I don't think that I would anymore. You never know when the cartel will come around and try to make a point.

    They are the best made with cod, grouper, and tilapia, in that order. I grill up my own from time to time, usually with fresly caught striped bass. They're good, but not as good as cod, grouper, and tilapia. I can't catch those here, though.

    When I was about 8, my Dad and I would go to this place on the harbor called "John's Fish Tacos", he'd always get fish tacos, I'd always get fish and chips. Well, eventually he got me to try the fish tacos, and I haven't looked back since. The combination of flavors and textures you get with the taco is really amazing.

    Also, give shrimp tacos a try if you get the chance, I like them even better than fish!
