Everyone at the Jersey Shore loves Surf Taco. The food is great and no one leaves without checking out their salsa bar. The staff is friendly and quick with a recommendation. It does get busy for lunch, but I've never waited longer than 15 minutes and they're call ahead is clutch when you know it will be busy. I dream... More

I love the food here. Everything is fresh & delish. I have picky kids & they love it too. Great portions. Quick service, you can even call ahead and it will be waiting for you. I go here at least 3 times a month

For a taco place, we'd rate this a 5. It's your standard Surf Taco, but without air conditioning, but the serving sizes were large and the tacos were served with a good serving of chips. A line did form for the soda machine as you get your own drink, but food is cooked to order and brought to your table... More

Ambience exceeds all other surf taco we've been to in nj! Absolutely beautiful location and interior. Out of the four jersey locations, we'll be coming back here most often. Great food, but also great atmosphere.

We were headed to Point Pleasant to a Mexican restaurant, but the GSP was jammed up so we decided to eat local. Intended to eat at 10th Avenue Burrito, but the menu looked pretty limited so we ventured on to Broad Street to see what we could find. Heard of Surf Taco - so we decided to try it. Once... More

No One is manning the dining room and the bathroom. The glass doors have way too many fingerprints all over it, bathroom didn't have toilet paper and the tables were not... More

A good choice for lunch. The menu is creative and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. Nothing astoundingly gourmet, but enjoyable, casual fare!

Surf Taco is a great chain. We go to the Red Bank location weekly. The food is good and usually tastes fresh. The menu is varied enough to please everyone. This not authentic Mexican food, and they admit that. Everything is more along the lines of "American Mexican" with yellow cheese and red salsa, but there are some treats. The... More
