Even though Tacos & Beer is located close to the heavily transited touristic via of Rosarito, you will need a bit of help to be able to get to this piece of heaven since it is close to the ocean. To reach this treasure you will need to search for Waldo's in the center of the city, from there continue your way toward the east and continue until reaching the beach, take a turn to the left at the last street and continue advancing until getting to Tacos & Beer.
From now you should know, do not expect an elegant place. You can sit on high chairs in front of the bar or you can cross the street and eat on the sand. Hopefully this hasn't unmotivated you, it is worth going. The seafood they handle are the freshest they could possibly be at an accessible price an apart from all of this, this place is always impeccable.
I had heard of Tacos & Beer, but I hadn't found the time to visit it. For my first visit, I ordered a shrimp quesadilla and wow! Prepared on the grill with a fresh garlic flavor. The quesadilla os made with mozzarella cheese and flour tortillas, pico de gallo, fresh col, cilantro and a lot of shrimp. All of this for just $55 pesos.
They also have carne asada tacos for $18 pesos each one but, honestly, the meat was somewhat inspired. They were well reported but without seasoning, which leaves the seafood as the winners here.
They've only been open for 3 years and in fact, this isn't even the main source of income for Alfredo who is the owner of this place. His main job is house construction in this neighborhood. He also built the establishment for Tacos & Beer with his own hands and h thought of the name in honor of the famous club in Rosarito, Papas & Beer.
Alfredo is a native of the San Gabriel valley in California but has been living in Rosarito for 15 years. es un nativo del valle de San Gabriel en California pero lleva 15 años viviendo en Rosarito. Electrician, but changes job often. He has worked as a a car mechanic in Rosarito and also as a chef at a Japanese restaurant, where he learned all of the food business. In its menu you can appreciate some of the Japanese dishes, like the shrimp tempura and i alongside the rest of the Mexican dishes and the even have fish with french fried on the menu for $120 pesos.
This place is packed during the summer which is when people rent carps, chairs and tables for those that want to enjoy the beach, they also count on an ice cream stand and decent bathrooms.
So if you are looking for a clean, tranquil and safe place to eat in Rosarito Beach and without many people, this is the indicated place.
This is one of the best kept secrets until now. Check their menu so you can see the rest of the delicious options. In the meantime, I will keep going here as well as the rest of the diners, that always come back time and time again.
