It's Good

You know the food is great. Like most people say the service is a little tough for sure. The facilities are crazy tight. Scored a porch seat more than one to eat my tacos and laugh at the line. I enjoy that maybe more than the food :). It says not booze on the deck but it wasn't enforced... read more

A little hole in the wall and you'll miss it if you blink, but the lobster taco is worth keeping your eyes peeled for this one. The tomato and avocado salsa is delicious and you can have your tacos from mild to very spicy. The staff were very friendly and constantly cleaning the tables.

Have eaten here a few times in the past when we are in Laguna Beach. It wasn't as good this year. Maybe just an off night.

I dream about their tacos. They make the best food. Their salsa and guacamole are fantastic. Their nachos are quite tasty. I like anything on their menu especially blackened. Can't go wrong at Taco Loco.

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.
