Terrific tacos and burritos on offer, just down the street from the beach in Capitola village. Both the fish burrito and tacos are terrific - nicely seasoned snapper with the usual adornments. Try the horchata - perfect for quenching your thirst on a hot day...More

The food is authentic and delicious. The burrito was so large it could be shared by two people. Prices are reasonable.

Tasty mexican food cooked to order. The Taquieria is close enough to the beach to enjoy your Burrito while watching the waves.

If you are craving fresh churros on the spot then this is the spot for you! My boyfriend and I wanted churros and not only do they have them here, but they make them right in front of you!
