If you enjoy delicious, fresh Mexican food, this is the place to visit. The food was awesomely delicious and cooked to order. My husband loved the open salsa bar. The prices were very reasonable; the decor was upbeat and so very colorful. The only downside would be that it's not open all year round, but that just gives us something... More

Food is great! Is very beachy with many of the people coming straight off the beach in swimsuits and no shoes.

All the food here is soooo good! If you are getting tacos I would recommend the combo that comes with rice, beans and chips. The standard chicken taco was my favorite. They have a nice salsa bar and I suggest you try them all. The nachos are smothered with cheese and we couldn't get enough of them! It's a family... More

Fresh ingredients, prepared quickly for a great price. It's often crowded with long lines during lunch time, but if you can call in your order, you can usually pick it up within 20 min. Look forward to eating there many times during our stay at the Windjammer Motor Inn which is a block away.

We have been going to Surf Taco for more than 10 years and were very excited when they opened a shop in Seaside Park. It was great, the food was fresh, and the theme remains fun. We've given it 3 years now, and the food has gone way downhill at Seaside Park. The tacos we order are often missing the... More

Love this place. Definitely gets very crowded, would recommend calling your order in and picking up. I would recommend everything on the menu, steak tacos was my choice. Perfect for the summer and beach. It's the best lunch spot. Eat in or eat out, but u will eat good. So many items to choose from. Definitely the place to order... More

Surf Taco has great food to eat there or take home. Surf burrito never disappoints and plenty of seafood and landlubber options (chicken wraps, beef tacos)...there's something for everyone!

Description
This is definitely one of my favorites on our annual excursions to the shore. A former colleague is also a big fan, so I was surprised not to see this listed in your data base. Other locations of this mini franchise are already on TripAdvisor®.
