Taco Nazo review image

Taco Nazo

The family behind Taco Nazo is originally from Ensenada—the supposed birthplace of the Baja-style fish taco—and since opening their first location four decades ago, they’ve managed to turn delicious beer-battered fish into a mini-empire. Nazo now has six locations across greater East LA, each serving flakey fish on warm corn tortillas with fresh cabbage, pico de gallo, and a big dollop of rich crema that tastes like tangy tartar sauce. If you’re in a hurry, you can use their convenient drive-thru, but don’t be surprised if it takes 20 minutes to get through during the dinner and lunch rush (or even longer during Lent season). We promise the two fish taco combo with creamy frijoles and chips will be worth the bumper-to-bumper lines, though.
