It’s one of the most popular spots on the entire California coastline. While every road-tripping college kid and brochure tourist is waiting in line with you, we’ll tell you right now, you’re going to want to wait it out for their tacos, chicken suizas, and gorditas. This order-at-the-window Mexican spot is a must-visit for anyone in SB. Order the Especial, or you’re dead to us.
