Love the tofu mushroom burgers ~

I've been coming here for well over 15 years and my standard favorite is the tofu mushroom burger. It might sound strange to some people but give it a try and it might have you hooked!! Often, I stop to grab one to go because it's quick, easy and reasonable not to mention healthy and delicious... read more

This is my favorite taco place in Laguna! All of their tacos are awesome but I always go for carnitas. Swordfish nachos are also the best you'll find anywhere. If you're ever near by, pop in for a quick bite. You won't be disappointed!

This place is awesome. Open late. Huge menu. Delicious tacos. DO NOT forget to ask the server to add salsas, etc because the tacos come plain with delicious guacamole on the side. Lots of options for all. Fun casual place

I loved this place right next on PCH. The tacos are probably some of the best I've eaten in my life, especially the one with lobster (which is seasonal I guess). Great, fresh ingredients, nice selection of craft beer, and all for a very good price, given the pricing levels of other restaurants in that area. I ate there twice... More

The food here was amazing, I've read reviews where people say it's too pricey but I think it's totally worth it. A large swordfish quesadilla was about $12 and it is amazing! we also like blackened chicken tacos, so much we went there three times during our visit to Laguna!

I have always come to this shop in Laguna. The food is good and the environment casual. Any of the tacos are worth a try and the fact that you can have a decent beer to wash it all down makes the place even better.

I've been to this place a couple of times and really do not care for the food. Though there are some healthy options, the taste is not anything like you would expect. Portions are very small. Sauces are so so. Some in our group got Tofu burgers and liked them. Beware afternoon visits. It is nearly impossible to sit in... More

Whenever I'm in the area, I always make a stop at Taco Loco. Everything on the menu is delicious, simple and refreshing but don't expect traditional Mexican style dishes. Also vegetarian friendly. After a long day at the beach, sit back, relax and have a cold beer with you awesome fish tacos.
