Welcome to our “Taco Shop with a healthy twist”

Fins Mexican Eatery has been Building a Better Fish Taco since 1989. We have taken our inspiration from all the great Baja Taco Shops, and have been serving San Diego's best Fish and Shrimp Tacos and frosty cervezas to a local following for over 2 decades! Fins is not a franchise. We're just a little-hole-in-the-wall place where you can kick-back and relax with good food, good friends and a beer or two.

Inside our kitchen

We make all our salsas, sauces and batters daily, season our chicken breast and 100% black angus steak, AND hand-batter each piece of fish, shrimp and lobster as you order - and yes, our lobster is real slipper-tail. We chop all our veggies daily, and use a famous family recipe for our rice and beans - no worries, no lard…only great taste.

Since day one, we have never changed our methods or compromised our quality ingredients, serving the highest quality meat and seafood and sourcing the freshest veggies and tortillas available. We still prepare everything we serve from scratch daily, with Fernando making fresh salsa and Marco and Rob manning our grill daily. Thanks guys!

Fins Mexican Eatery is proud to partner with Rerip as an official drop-off location for unused surfboards, fins and wetsuits. When you do, we'll reward your good deed with a coupon for one FREE beer-battered fish taco. It's one FREE beer-battered fish taco for each item dropped off, so the more you drop off, the more fish tacos you get!
Rerip is a 501c3 organization and appreciates your tax-deductible donation. Run by a team of volunteers, Rerip sets up locations for people to drop off their unwanted boards, fins and wetsuits. Always advocating for a cleaner surf industry, Rerip also hosts local events and awareness campaigns for surf and environmental education. Any amount helps Rerip grow its programs.
The Rerip organization, based here in San Diego, directly benefits our local beaches and community. Please visit Rerip.org to find out more or to get involved.
