Cool casual hangout with good food

Scallop taco, quesadilla, shrimp burritos.... Yummy. If you can't decide on the appetizer try the combo, a meal of its own. Nice fun atmosphere, friendly staff and a nice upstairs outdoor seating.

Got carry out for four for the first time. Everyone ordered a different type of tacos. All were pronounced very good. fresh ingredients. nicely seasoned. nicely prepared and presented--even in carryout box! We found the guacamole salty.

Low key and comfort food haven. Great Tex-Mex fare with giant guac/salsa/chip starters. Loved the fish tacos and egg combos.

Mexican dishes with a flare, I had shrimp tacos with a wonderful sauce and cabbage. Margaritas were very good a bit pricey but this is Georgetown.

My friend introduced me to this place and I was hooked! I remember getting their Costa Rica (has cinnamon in it! yum!) But the last time I came, it wasn't on their menu anymore :( Their menu has changed. I guess they were keeping up based on popularity or being innovative with their selections (FYI- I still miss Costa Rica... More

A group of us went to Surfside for an early dinner and drinks. Loved the eclectic menu, which is mostly quasi-mexican with enough oddities thrown in to make you look twice. Flavor was great, and the prices were reasonable, especially given the size of the portions. Will definitely go again when we're in the area!

I have been going to Surfside for years and was there again last night with out of town friends. In fact this is one of my favorite places to take visiting friends. Not to expensive, plenty of food options, really quick service, fun environment and good drinks. I have noticed that from a 2 year old to a 82 year... More

My daughter and son in law wanted to take us to Surf side for lunch. They really like the food here. I didn't think the food had a lot of flavor but it was okay. Everyone else in the group really enjoyed it. Would try again to make sure it wasn't just a "down" day.

I love this place. The food is very good, the ingredients fresh and prepared well. The corn tortillas are very fresh.

You order at the counter and then get a buzzer, which rings when you can go pick up your food. The indoor seating is limited, but the upstairs patio is nice. It is a great place for mid-20s looking for good food and margaritas.
