Designed by Vancouverite Shiloh Sukkau, the restored heritage building was inspired by the surf culture of Tofino, Baja and SoCal, with graphic tile work and beachy accents alongside heritage brick. In addition to classics such as the al pastor taco, the Gastown location is serving up quirky combinations such as a lamb birria taco with arbol chili and pickled nopals, and a spicy kabocha squash and pickled cauliflower tostada that packs a punch.
You HAVE to get the nachos!!! They somehow stay crispy despite being covered in a mountain of excellent toppings including multiple cheeses. Not sure how they do it. Whenever I get nachos most places, the chips are falling apart. These chips supported weight! Also got the fish taco that was really good and one of the pork tacos.
We were literally told about this place by a guy who lives in Seattle and said every now and then he and his wife make the drive up because it's so good. We were in town on vacation and it was definitely worth it.

Recommend by my friend to come here. This place is definitely worth trying. We had the pork, beef and fish taco. I personally like the fish taco, very crispy and juicy. Each taco is $6, which is not too expensive. The atmosphere is pretty nice too. Will come back again.

I’ve never been to Mexico, but this feels pretty legit. The guacamole is pure gold, the spiced Mexican corn soup over exceeded my expectations and the tacos themselves are pretty darn great. I’ll save you the psychological crisis and let you know the taco vs burrito bathrooms aren’t gendered. Aesthetics draw in the hipsters, the tacos draw in the foodies and the good service keeps them all coming back.

Some of the best tacos I've had in a while. If you're looking for Mexican, this is a solid choice.
They're more complex tacos than what I'd call street tacos, great though.
I had a pastor, a fish, and a crispy chicken (fried chicken). I'd say the fish was my favorite but, the chicken was a very close second.
Been 2 and 3 tacos would be a good meal, I was full with 3.

We have always enjoyed our visits here. The staff were great. Chips and dips appetizer good. We all enjoyed our meals but for the octopus dish.
I am a great fan of octopus, however this dish did not live up to the normal standards we have always had here. Still, it was a great evening.
