I recently enjoyed a terrific Fish Taco Combo meal that was very satisfying. It was two Mahi tacos with rice and beans and nachos with great salsa, I was stuffed after eating it! Very reasonable prices, casual seating, overall a winner.

Average food and average prices. If you're looking for a quick, casual meal this is the place. It's an order yourself/bus your own restaurant so there's no hostess or waitstaff. Very low key and a step up over fast food.

After seeing the name in a few beach towns we gave it a try. While the wait was a little long they were very good. I liked how they served it on a pile of tortillas and that there was a salsa bar to try different salsas.

Nice little place to get tacos, burritos, etc. I especially enjoy the steak quesadilla. This isn't authentic Mexican food, but it's really good nonetheless. Their salsa bar is also very nice. I usually stick to the salsa verde, but I'm sure the other salsas are good.

Stumbled onto this place while bicycling. A small chain of 4 stores. This location was very busy so we tried it. We had a Mahi Mahi taco and a Salmon taco. $5.75 each and comes with Mexican style chips. 4 kinds of home made salsa sauce available at the salsa bar. Other types of tacos available Limited out door seating... More

If you want a quick and tasty Mexican meal, this is the place to go! The food is good, but not very cheap. The atmosphere is one of a surfer bar and their salsa bar can't be beat!!

Surf Taco has a friendly staff, fresh food, vegetarian options and good guac. Food is served fast, and there is a salsa bar to suit every taste. Simple and delicious.
