9 Best Fish Tacos in Orange County


Matador Cantina

Located in the historical district of downtown Fullerton, this place has charm with its old building and large booths, which seem tiny compared to the longest bar I have ever seen. Come for dinner to enjoy the dimly lit atmosphere. Chef Dave Dennis does Baja justice with his Mahi Mahi fish tacos. He serves Baja on a plate, kicked up with quality ingredients. This spot had the best cabbage, which was lightly dressed, adding a touch of acidity to the tacos that was greatly appreciated. He also used Cotija cheese, which was a nice change of pace amongst the others.

Native Knowledge: If you like spice, then ask for the salsas the cooks eat!
