I does come here almost every month. Shrimp and Crispy Octopus. Price is twice the normal Tijuana tacos. For 20 USD you can have a good lunch for 2-3 persons. I always bring my visitor to this place.

My husband absolutely loves this place! (And he's quite picky) they have delicious shrimp quesadillas that definitely make a trip down the border absolutely worth it!

Taco de camaron enchilado that's what I recommend everyone to try first at el mazateno, it's the best. Try it, you will love it.

A few times, I've actually requested a few extra tortillas, because they load SO MUCH SHRIMP into their tacos, you can create 2 or even 3 out of one! (Yeah; I'm cheap!). Their famous quesadilla shrimp taco is just so tasty, I rarely order anything...More
