If I could give Kotija Jr Carlsbad 6 stars I would. All of the 5 star reviews on here are on point. The quality of the food at this taco shop is above average for what you’d expect at a similar joint. The taquitos are hand rolled, not frozen, and the salsa smacks hard. Highly recommend if you’re a taco junkie!



I worked close to Kotija jr so it was a mainstay for my coworkers and I. They used to have a Taco Tuesday deal of discounted fish tacos which I took advantage numerous times. But sometimes I got Pastor Tacos or Carne Asada Tacos. Other times I would get Carne Asada Fries, Nachos Supreme or a Calfornia burrito. I really liked their salsa bar, lots of cucumber, carrots and limes available.



I had the grilled chicken burrito and tacos both tasted great! The chicken bowl is tasty, healthy and filling. Awesome 🇲🇽 Mexican food and very friendly service. I highly recommend this place for a quick bite to eat. Good salsa bar.



The adobada taco was good, but the pollo asado taco was the best I've had! I was honestly surprised how good it was. The guacamole and salsa were also very good. I will definitely visit this place again. My wife had fish tacos and said they were the best she's ever had!
