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.

This place was right across from Pacific Edge hotel. Sat outside and had dinner. Wide variety of food,(I would call it "Mexican seafood!) fast, and very good.

I find Taco Loco to have some of the best nachos around. Their daily deals are truly amazing and I love the way the package everything together. Blackened Chicken or Blackened Mushroom tacos mmmm! They can appeal to all food eaters here, Vegetarian (possibly vegan) and meat-eaters alike will enjoy this spot. It's well located on PCH and easy to... More

This place is very tasty. Healthy and fresh and fun to sit out on the side walk watching the world go by while you munch on your amazing tacos
