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

Great, real Mexican food! I only ate their tacos because they were so delicious! This is home cooked food, very tasty, reasonably priced and good service. Sit outside and enjoy a beer and tasty food.

Visited Taco Loco in the evening (10pm-ish), we were staying across the street at Pacific Edge. The staff was not very friendly, and the steak tacos I ordered consisted of a folded tortilla with 2-3 small pieces of bland meat - that's it. Very average experience, a return visit is unlikely.

We were looking for a local restaurant serving tasty food and this eatery hit the mark. The prices were reasonable, the food served fresh and hot. The portions were just right; not the massive amounts served in some restaurants.

The best tacos, the perfect prices, and even a great sangria. Order three (different!) tacos because you will want several. Yum.

Hard to find parking, but worth the hike up the hill from downtown Laguna. Probably the best fish tacos in Laguna.

We read all the reviews and really thought we might eat here more than once. We had the sea bass salad and a blackened chicken taco. Both were "ok" - overpriced in my opinion. Workers weren't friendly at all.
