We arrived shortly before noon and the place was already getting a crowd. Outside tables had a 30 min. wait but we were seated immediately inside. Our server was great and took time answering our questions as this was our first time. The atmosphere was casual and fun. My husband and I each had two tacos - he chose The... More

Food was great, very creative and it is where the locals go. Because it is so good it can get pretty busy so go early if you need to get in and out...but it is still with any wait. Parking could be easier but hey it is busy for a reason. I definitely recommend TacoLu!

Worst food ever. Nothing has flavor. The green rice stuff is disgusting. The fish tacos had to small cubes of fish. Over priced horrible service worse food.

We have heard about TacoLu for a while, finally had the chance to go. What a disappointment !! While the service was good and server friendly and efficient, the food was terrible, the drink average. There was definitely MSG in the food - I ended up with a migraine and extremely thirsty. I'm very puzzled why would people rate this... More

Great atmosphere, delicious food. Mexican street corn is a must & every type of taco cooked to perfection! Love their margaritas! There's a reason for the wait, folks - but it's worth every blasted second!

It was a Wednesday night so I wondered why there was a twenty minute wait but as we waited .outdoors in a little garden area, we caught the lively vibe from other guests. The menu, although not extensive, was varied..something for everyone. We had the best street corn, so-tasty scallop & avocado taco & carnitas and a delicious flan for... More

Went for a drink with 3 friends. It is definitely a people place! If you want quiet this is not the place for you but if you want to feel alive with excellent drinks and appetizers then this is worth the visit!

Great atmosphere and service was excellent. We had to wait about 40 minutes for a table for 6 at lunch time on a Sunday afternoon but the hostess was friendly and efficient and they have a texting service. The menu offers great flavors and the prices are quite reasonable. Between the 6 of us we ordered 5 different types of... More

Can’t imagine someone in the Jacksonville Beach having not gone to Taco Lu’s at least once, but if there is a hermit out there here goes. I was an avid goer to the old site of Taco Lu, but have not found the parking lot to have a space for my car since they moved. That tells you something. Today... More
