    Every Tuesday, you can achieve the taco experience for $2 Tuesday, two for $5 Fridays, and bottomless mimosa Sundays! For $1.25, the pico de gallo and chips is probably the best value

    Come for the bumpin' nightclub vibe, stay for the incredibly delicious crispy tacos. Don't miss the Pescado Taco and make sure to use the key words "Nick's Way". Read about it on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    The tacos - Pescadoro and Carne Asada — they're bigger than normal corn tacos so you only need two at most. Get them Nick's way. Housemade chips and guac are also a good start.

    Delicious bean and cheese burrito. Not many taquerias and taco places feature this item on their menu. Excellent service and very good food.

    Wondering what to get? Get a 'fish taco' (Nick's way) and the 'corn on the cob', done! It's all you'll need. Yummy stuff!

    Too bad the founder sold out and lost a fortune. I like this place because it's close to my old hang outs in North Beach. The Crispy Tacos are good and I think the night life is excellent here.

    Try the pescado burrito. Get it with guac, and sprinkle line on it. Deliciously crispy and refreshing.

    Open during the day as it is operated out of a portion of a Night Club. The best tacos, crispy or regular with perfect guacamole, elote and melon juice. Tuesdays: $2 tacos/$10 pitchers!

    Taco Tuesday is a great deal, but the tacos themselves aren't very good. Great quesadillas, but it's also really hard to fuck that up.

    If you don't get it nick's way I don't know what's wrong with you. The nachos and quesadillas are super good too. They now deliver too!!!

    Portions are huge here, 2 tacos + chips = full belly. Nick's way with guacamole is great for steak and chicken dishes, not so great for fish and shrimp.

    The crispy taco (Nick's Way) was totally worth the extra dollar. Tacos are larger than they appear, I are three but would've been fine with two

    Vegetarian tacos are super tasty and Guacamole and pico are awesome! If I lived in San Francisco, I'd be a regular.

    Bring cash so you don't have to use the shady ATM. Be sure to order chips and guacamole to enjoy while you wait for your order.

    If you want a burrito but refuse to stop raging with your bros, this is the perfect place. Go hard to typically-but-not-exclusively Pitbull while getting your burrito on, bro.

    Yup, just like everyone says - the baja fish tacos are amazing. I don't even like fish that much, but I crave these! (with guac of course).

    If you are in town from the east coast, you have to eat as many tacos and burritos as you can. This place has some of the best tacos!

    The $3 dollar margaritas win me over every time. I've definitely had better tacos though - but if you must, order the pescado taco

    This is such a bizarre place. It's a sports bar/lounge with a decent taco place in the back. Food is fine but I don't intend to go back

    The carne asada taco was good. The fried fish tacos which were not very good. Too much batter on the fish and too much cabbage. Gets really crowded after about 6p. Cash only

    Taco Tuesdays are crazy. Line is insanely long and the place is packed. But it's a blast with happy hour specials and $2 tacos (not all kinds). Get there before 6 if you want to have any chance at get

    Don't follow the previous 50 thousand plus tips about fish. Get some the special poppers, have some wild fun and beers.. Then eat food, perhaps jalapeño poppers!
