We fly to O.C. every other year or so to visit my wife's family. Last July while on our favorite beach in all of southern California (Seal Beach), we ate at this little hole in the wall called "Taco Surf" its within walking distance to the beach. I'm from Kentucky and we have a lot of Hispanics that come here... More

I love baja fish tacos. These were pretty good, fresh tasting. Good portions, fast service. I'd go back for quick meal at the beach.

I happened to find myself in Seal Beach the other day, so I decided to get a taco here. Funky, old surf beach look and a big crowd drew me in. As it so happens, it was "Taco Tuesday" night, and tacos were $2 apiece. No wonder the place was so crowded! Taco Surf is very casual and busy, but... More

A friend and I wandered in here one afternoon for a snack and a beer. They only are licensed for beer. Servings are generous, food is fresh and well seasoned. Small and casual, a perfect beach stop. Their chips are so fresh you could easily fill up on them! This definitely a go back to place whenever in the area.

We've been bouncing around Southern California this week, making it our mission to test out the tacos. Winning taco = Baja fish taco. Chicken bowl pretty delish, too!

A small, casual place to enjoy a beer and a variety of good Mex food. Reasonable prices. Gets crowded for lunch.

We have been going here for years; tacos are great; chili rellenos are too. Take out is a breeze; and you get ample chips and salsa with the take out. Be aware that the tacos are huge; so if you normally eat 3 at home; 2 will do. And, a side order of beans is enough for two. We order... More

You can't find a more Perfect Small Beach Town than Seal Beach. Taco Surf is a casual, family friendly restaurant. Always busy, quick service, good and cheap food. A great meeting place for friends, family, kid gathering, it's for everyone.
