Sancho’s Taqueria in Palo Alto offers fresh fish tacos without the heavy breading

The Fish Tacos at Sancho’s Taqueria in Palo Alto.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a good fish taco, and I figured California has plenty of places that would satisfy my craving. My online search for a tasty fish taco in Silicon Valley brought me to Sancho’s Taqueria in Palo Alto, which has received four-star reviews for its variety of authentic Mexican entrees and seafood specials.

Dish of Choice

I ordered two fish tacos, which were made with lightly breaded pieces of red snapper on a bed of slaw in a warm flour tortilla. The tacos were topped with pico de gallo and a chipotle remoulade, which was a creamy, tartar-like sauce. It came with a free side of chips and salsa, and I ordered a fountain drink. My meal cost about $11.

The Taste

The cook did not go heavy on the fish’s breading (which is a good thing to me), and it tasted fresh and hot. The sauce had a nice zest to it, and I think the pico de gallo and slaw nicely complemented the dish. They were good-sized tacos that left me content but not stuffed. I would definitely order them again.

The Ambiance

Sancho’s Taqueria is a colorful restaurant, with Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) decorations and other Mexican-inspired artwork on the walls. The restaurant seats about 50 people and has outdoor seating in the front and back. The extensive menu — which includes tacos, burritos, seafood dishes and a variety of dinner plates — is posted on a blackboard on the wall, and customers order at the counter. The staff brings the food to your table when it’s ready. Sancho’s Taqueria is cash only, but there is an ATM inside just in case you forgot to carry cash (like I did).

Sancho’s Taqueria is located at 2723 Middlefield Road in Palo Alto and has three other locations: 491 Lytton Ave., Palo Alto; 3205 Oak Knoll Drive, Redwood City; and 1494 El Camino Real, San Carlos. The restaurant also offers take out and catering. For hours and more information, visit sanchostaqueria.com.

    I had the carne asada burrito, which was very good also. Nice place. Good prices and decor.
