I stopped in here while staying at a nearby hotel. It’s very casual as it’s just a food truck. I got the combo cod and shrimp.The fish n chips and shrimp were very good. I would stop here again for deep fried fish or shrimp.

The title says it all. This little fish and chips shack was a welcomed pit stop for us on our breathless tour of San Francisco. I must say, the fish was legit, but the portions were small for the price. I give it 4 stars...More
