    Ricky’s Ensenada-style fried catfish tacos are among the best in town. The fish is crisply coated in a light and magically greaseless jacket of batter; the fish within is remarkably tender. Read more

    Ricky Piña reigns supreme over the fish taco landscape in LA. His Baja-style fried fish & shrimp tacos are available from his truck a few hours each day, but are worth making time for. Read more

    The batter blend is top-secret, but each taco is both golden and greaseless, served with crunchy raw cabbage, a chunky tomato and pepper salsa, and crema, with optional fresh salsa verde on the side.

    "Two deep-fried, Baja-style fish and shrimp tacos, and a fresh agua fresca. This long-standing favorite still does fresh, fried-fish better than just about anyone from its free-standing Virgil truck."

    Fish tacos, lightly battered and beautifully fried. The only minus is that they're a bit salty. Drizzle your tacos with white crema and chat with Ricky if he's around -- such a friendly guy.

    The tacos remain the stuff of legend: delicate fillets of battered fish, some chopped cabbage, pico de gallo and a warm flour tortilla. Read more

    Easily the best fish tacos in Los Angeles. As small as they look they are quite filling. Parking is always hard to find but ultimately it's worth it

    Ricky's Fish Tacos has added dinner to their menu, so track down their food truck and head over for a delicious (and cheap) late night treat.

    The crispy, ultra-fresh Baja-style fish taco from Ricky’s is exactly what you see in your brain when you imagine the Platonic ideal of a fish taco.

    You think you only need 2 tacos. You're wrong. You really want 4. Just order 4 to begin with.
