Budget friendly happy hour

Chips, street tacos, beer. It's a great way to start the evening. Even the regular menu items are good and are priced nicely. Belmont Shore is a nice place to walk around and relax with the locals, also.

YuM! It would be a shame to come to LBC and not try their fish tacos! Baja Fish Tacos are absolutely delicious. I think their secret is in the pink sauce. They also have good happy hour specials.

Had lunch with a friend the other day. First off, the service was excellent. We did not have to ask for refills etc. because our server was right on top of our needs.

Taco Surf has good food, great service and a great location on 2nd St. We dined on the patio, it was a beautiful day, I had the taco salad, which was delish. This is a great place to dine, not to mention affordable prices.
