Family owned, The Taco Stand, is right off of the South Coast Highway in Downtown Encinitas. They are known for their authentic tacos inspired from Tijuana. All corn tortillas are made fresh daily, and this also includes their salsa and guacamole! They also have locations in Downtown San Diego, La Jolla, and North Park if Encinitas isn’t on your radar. Although, this is the best location of them all! There’s always a line out the door, and everyone always patiently waits. Here is some of what The Taco Stand has to offer:
They have every taco you’d love to try: al pastor, pollo asado, carne asada, sonora taco, and so many more! Most customers say they go for the al pastor! You want to know why? They marinate the pork for several hours, and the meat is cooked twice. First, it’s slow cooked slow braise, and then it’s placed on a vertical spit. The meat continues to roast until it’s served to order! Also, they have a very unique salsa bar. All of their salsas are made with secret ingredients, and as mentioned earlier, fresh daily. Don’t make the mistake of not stopping by here while in Encinitas!
