    Come for the bumpin' nightclub vibe, stay for the incredibly delicious crispy tacos. Don't miss the Pescado Taco and make sure to use the key words "Nick's Way". Read about it on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    This fish is grilled and wrapped in two tortillas (one soft, the other crispy) and topped with marinated cabbage, pico de gallo, and a big dollop of fresh guac. Read more

    The tacos - Pescadoro and Carne Asada — they're bigger than normal corn tacos so you only need two at most. Get them Nick's way. Housemade chips and guac are also a good start.

    Too bad the founder sold out and lost a fortune. I like this place because it's close to my old hang outs in North Beach. The Crispy Tacos are good and I think the night life is excellent here.

    Open during the day as it is operated out of a portion of a Night Club. The best tacos, crispy or regular with perfect guacamole, elote and melon juice. Tuesdays: $2 tacos/$10 pitchers!

    I like the crispy tacos, especially the chicken, but the best meal I've had at Nicks was the vegetarian burrito. ask for some Habanero salsa

    If you don't get it nick's way I don't know what's wrong with you. The nachos and quesadillas are super good too. They now deliver too!!!

    Portions are huge here, 2 tacos + chips = full belly. Nick's way with guacamole is great for steak and chicken dishes, not so great for fish and shrimp.

    The crispy taco (Nick's Way) was totally worth the extra dollar. Tacos are larger than they appear, I are three but would've been fine with two

    Bring cash so you don't have to use the shady ATM. Be sure to order chips and guacamole to enjoy while you wait for your order.

    Vegetarian tacos are super tasty and Guacamole and pico are awesome! If I lived in San Francisco, I'd be a regular.

    Wondering what to get? Get a 'fish taco' (Nick's way) and the 'corn on the cob', done! It's all you'll need. Yummy stuff!

    If you want a burrito but refuse to stop raging with your bros, this is the perfect place. Go hard to typically-but-not-exclusively Pitbull while getting your burrito on, bro.

    Def get your tacos Nick's way and try the corn at least once. Check in on Yelp for free chips and salsa.

    The reviews said the baja fish taco "nick's way" would be life changing, and it was.

    The $3 dollar margaritas win me over every time. I've definitely had better tacos though - but if you must, order the pescado taco

    Try the pescado burrito. Get it with guac, and sprinkle line on it. Deliciously crispy and refreshing.

    If you are in town from the east coast, you have to eat as many tacos and burritos as you can. This place has some of the best tacos!

    Tasty and size size burritos and tacos. They don't skimp on the guac either. I'll definitely be back

    Yup, just like everyone says - the baja fish tacos are amazing. I don't even like fish that much, but I crave these! (with guac of course).

    Taco Tuesday is great, just be sure to get there when it starts, otherwise it's hard to find a seat.

    If you're paying in cash they're gonna hand you back coins as change. Amateur hour.

  • Maya S.
    Yes, the pescado taco nick's way is a must, the crispy tortilla is a nice added crunch.
  • Billy J.
    This is such a bizarre place. It's a sports bar/lounge with a decent taco place in the back. Food is fine but I don't intend to go back

    Taco Tuesdays are crazy. Line is insanely long and the place is packed. But it's a blast with happy hour specials and $2 tacos (not all kinds). Get there before 6 if you want to have any chance at get

    Big tacos! I should have gotten two of the veggie ones; very tasty! Funky interior that probably looks better at night.

    Don't follow the previous 50 thousand plus tips about fish. Get some the special poppers, have some wild fun and beers.. Then eat food, perhaps jalapeño poppers!

    Cash only, but they have an ATM machine. Order food at the interior counter; order drinks at the bar.

    Nick's tacos are famous in NorCal. The only way to order them is "Nick's Way". And, be sure to get at least one Pescado.

    Fish tacos, nick's way. Elote (corn on the cob Mexican style). Margarita. It's the holy trinity.
