The meal was typical of any Surf Taco restaurant. The service is fast the was fast the selection was good for that type of food. Specialty drinks and bar drinks are available and priced accordingly. There is plenty of packing. It is not a destination type restaurant. It is average for a quick venue to eat at.

This is a great place to have an early dinner with a friend. If you don't sit in the bar area, there are usually plenty of seats and you can talk for a while without feeling like someone is waiting for your seat. There aren't any waitresses so there's also isn't any concern that your holding up the table. Food... More

We had two surf tacos. Good as expected. My wife said she wished she got it Baja style with corn she'll instead of flour. Chips were good salsa was not as hot this time.

The atmosphere is fun and colorful. The salsa bar is a nice way to try different heat levels and taste of salsas. My husband usually gets the fish tacos which he really likes. I really like the Aloha wrap as well as the Cali Wrap. Another favorite is the Garlic Shrimp Burrito. My husband and I usually split that.

Honestly, I like just about any kind of food and I eat just about anything. But not here. Just don't care for the meat or any of the items on the menu. The place is real nice.... but I won't eat there ever.

I placed my order on their online app. I think it's great. I ordered the food that we wanted. Send my husband to pick it up and it's ready when he gets there.

My wife and I stopped at surf taco for lunch last week. We opted for table service rather than ordering at the counter. The server was polite, friendly and prompt. The food was delivered in a timely manner and was served at the right temperature. There was only one problem, it just didn't taste good. Perhaps I'm spoiled by authentic... More

I use the mobile app and order online to pick up my order. My daughter loves their burritos. They have a great bar in there if you would like to go get some tacos and sit at a nice bar.
