Nice fish tacos

Small sidewalk taco place with tasty fish tacos. Found portions rather small, but other than that a nice option for those looking for a quick eat.

Taco Loco is located in one of the mos beautiful cities of Orange County, being close to the beach you feel relaxed having one of their fish tacos or quesadillas ... Staff is very friendly and the food is awesome. Highly recommended to run away from busy OC freeways ... Enjoy.

I like calamari, don't love it, but like it. So it might seem unusual that while awaiting the gallows my request would be blackened calamari tacos from Taco Loco with a bean tostada chaser. Conservatives, don't let the edgy look of the place deter you. The calamari is always fresh. The person behind the counter will ask you two questions... More

Had to try this place as I was told it was really good. So one night my wife and I took a short walk from the hotel to try this place out. The order process is a little strange however the food is great

By all appearances it seems like a typical whole in the wall. But the selection was pretty fancy. Had sea bass tacos and my husband had shrimp. The food was really good and had a nice selection of beer.

Some tasty tacos and cheap beers. A little hole in the wall. Great place to grab some food to take down to the beach which is across the road!

While vacationing in Laguna Beach this place was recommended by all the locals for the best tacos in town. I'm glad we tried it. Great local spot with really good food. It was pretty crammed in there but that was a combination of tight quarters and the big crowds this place attracts. I'll definitely go back when I'm back in... More
