I'm assuming you're talking grilled.

Rex's seafood at Lover's and Inwood has good ones. But man, they are difficult to find here, otherwise. Uncle Julio's does some decent ones. The new Rusty Taco at Greenville and Lover's has some decent ones.

Mi cocina does some decent ones as well.

Baja fresh - - if you like frozen. By that I mean, no.

There is a great place in Austin, that came from CA, called Wahoo. I wish there was one up here.

I am moving to either Oxnard, San Fran area or Portland in two days. Looking forward to more seafood options.

Texmex is influenced by cuisine in Mexico outside of the Baja California/Pacific regions, so good fish tacos are hard to find. The fact that Dallas is pretty far from the coast in general makes it even harder.

I *LOVE* fish tacos!!!

Baja Fresh's are pretty good, but they are fried. Personally, I prefer grilled.
Uncle Julio's are pretty good, too.
On The Border's are GROSS. (I only ate them once, and they gave me a tummy ache.)
I hear that Fuel City in Dallas has really good ones, but I've never tried them.
Fuzzy's are really good!! Fuzzy's Taco Shop - Home of Fuzzy's Famous Baja Tacos
La Familia in Fort Worth so far makes my favorites, even though they are fried. La Familia Restaurant: Home: The West Side’s flavor of Mexico!

Tell me... where are the fish tacos here?
I grew up in California and always ate at Del Taco, didn't know they had fish tacos there lol

What area of the metroplex are you in? If you live near Greenville Ave hit up Rusty Taco. If you're in Richardson or North Richland Hills hit up Fuzzy Taco (I think they're building one off of Abrams in Dallas as well) it just really depends where you are. I wouldn't drive from a certain area to go get fish tacos, but thats just me. Rusty and Fuzzy have really good shrimp and fish tacos.

Fuzzy's is opening a location in the former Blockbuster space in Hillside Village.

Urban Taco has good fish tacos.

We just had a Fuzzy's Taco place open in Richardson on Campbell Road in the old Brams location - near Custer.

I think I order some kind of fish taco at Rockfish. It's good whatever it is.

There is a place on Preston and Frankford called Berryhill Baja Grill that has very good fish tacos. Their website claims that they were named Zagats Best Fish Taco ever. They are from Houston, but have a location here in Dallas and one in Austin.

Berryhill Baja Grill

BTW - I was in San Diego last week and ate at Wahoo's and was really disappointed. Everything was really bland.
