This place was a random stop we did on our travel down the coast, it was in a small little town but was an easy stop and a delicious quick meal. You order at the window and sit at the tables outside

What a brilliant smokehouse. Tacos are to die for. Staff friendly and chilled. Could have kept eating the wonderful food. Super popular spot. Queue out the door. You can grab a cold beer from liquor store next door to accompany food. Go!

Ever thought of having smoked fish tacos? Me neither but I did and they are amazing. Smoked salmon and smoked ahi or albacore. Use the cayucos hot sauce! This is a must visit place! Bring your dog and share with him.

Really good food. Not many options, but some times less is more. I had the salmon, my wife had the chicken and my son the shrimp. All were very tasty. Not much room to sit and all seating is outside.

Enjoyed this Cayucos institution for a casual lunch with extended Family. Ate at rustic tables on the sidewalk out front. The smoked fish tacos are the big draw here, but the smoked pork tacos were also excellent.
