Picking one fish taco restaurant in San Diego is like picking your favorite song—dang near impossible. But Oscar’s Mexican Seafood holds a special place in our hearts because, well, you simply can’t do much better than Oscar’s classic Ensenada-style battered fish tacos, or grilled if you prefer. There’s also an amazing smoked fish taco dressed in cheese and avocado, and the specialty Atun Adobado showcasing marinated tuna, pineapple, avocado, onion, and cilantro.
Oscar’s Mexican Seafood is a beloved San Diego institution—nobody does Ensenada-style fish tacos better. But there’s more to the menu, including breakfast burritos, crab and shrimp tostadas, and tortas stuffed with meat or seafood and served on toasted Mexican bread. There’s also tangy ceviches, meal-sized salads, and dinner plates with all the requisite sides.
How to book: A small number of tables are available indoors and outside on a first-come basis. Order takeout in person or online at your preferred location.
