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

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.

I would have given this place a better score- because the food is great however I have been going to this place for close to 20yrs now, employees can be fairly rude, difficult to get your order and they act like they have never seen you before- just strange in any business..... But admit they can get away with it... More

Went here on a recommendation of a local to try really good fish tacos. When in Cali why would you eat anything else but fish in tacos? This place offered all the fish varieties and at very reasonable prices. No frills place but they put everything into the food. Tried the blackened swordfish tacos and the fish was seasoned well...

Six of us ate dinner here at 9pm one night and the place was busy, but the line moved fairly quickly. Everyone agreed their food was great - tried the blackened fish tacos (salmon and swordfish) and blackened fish nachos, and I would definitely go back for these. Once our food was ready we had the choice of adding guacamole... More
