Pasele, Hay Tacos!

¡Hola, we’re The Taco Stand!

We’re a family owned taquería inspired by the taco stands of Tijuana and our adventures along the Baja peninsula. With the majority of our time spent in San Diego, we needed an authentic taco stand experience to satisfy our cravings north of the border. With solid family recipes and a fridge stocked with Mexican Coca-Cola, we opened our first location in La Jolla in 2013. In 2016, we opened two more locations in Downtown San Diego & Encinitas.

Our authentic taco stand experience features handmade corn tortillas, top grade meats and the freshest ingredients, used to make our guacamole and salsas from scratch daily. Besides amazing tacos and burritos, we also have a great selection of Mexican flavored popsicles, refreshments, imported beer and freshly prepared Rosarito-style churros.


Taco fiesta? Let The Taco Stand cater your next event! Our catering cart is designed to deliver authentic mexican tacos for any type of social event, from family gatherings, corporate events or anything in between! We are sure to dazzle your guests with our made-to-order tacos, incredible salsas and outstanding fresh side dishes.
