This particular Taco Bell is right on the beach and has a outdoor seating area so u can eat outside and watch the surfers, dolphins and the world go by. This is about the only thing it has going for it. The food is ok and inexpensive but the staff are unhelpful, miserable and rude. It's ok for a snack... More

Taco Bell is Taco Bell, but here we are right on the ocean, as in step off the nice rear deck and ur in sand. Amazing experience. Fast, friendly waitstaff. If only they sold beer...dreaming.

A regular Taco Bell, with a beautiful view of the ocean. Service is friendly and the food tasted fresh. A very cheap way to dine on the oceanfront!

Being at that taco bell is the most delightful experience that everyone should try just once then you are hooked forever. We travel all the way from san Jose just for the relaxing view that we greatly enjoy without being really broke. The outside seating is great like having breakfast at home on the deck by the sea. Everything is... More
