Oscar’s Mexican Seafood
Fish tacos are as ubiquitous as sailors in San Diego, so why does Oscar’s Mexican Seafood stand out? Fresh fish, of course. Good prices and service, check. Variety, also check. Do this all day, every day and with a little luck, you might just be successful.
Now consider that in just over a year, Oscar’s has expanded from one tiny storefront on Turquoise Street to three locations and still manages to be the #1 ranked restaurant in San Diego on a notoriously fickle social media site. That’s #1. Out of every other restaurant. In all of San Diego.
A regular fish taco goes for $2.50, but cash-strapped surfer dudes and dudettes can take advantage of their Monday–Thursday happy hour special when the price drops to .99 for one regular fish or a free regular fish taco with any other order.
There’s almost always a line out the door, but service is fast and friendly.
