Great Tacos!

Typical beach taco place: comfortable, informal, catering to families or couples or anyone else, and definitely with a beachy vibe. Great for saving the wife from cooking or for taking the visiting gang for lunch (or dinner). Service is attentive, food is good, and as you might expect Mexican... read more

Since I’d returned to this area as part of my regular business route, I was looking for some comfort food which would keep me warm (as it was unusually chilly this week). Because I’d gotten great food and had good service here before, this seemed like a good bet to pay a return visit to. On my previous visit I... More

Went here based on a recommendation from a co-worker and was very pleased. The chips, salsa, guacamole, and tacos were great. I went with a group of friends and we had a great experience. The plates were huge. There were 9 in my party and not a one of us had any complaints about the food or service. Some of... More

As a frequent visitor to Seal Beach, I passed by this place a number of times just because I took the name literally, and thought there would be only tacos available. I was looking for a place I hadn’t tried yet, so I stopped in to see what was on the menu. There’s a whole variety of Tex-Mex cuisine available.... More

Really good Baja fish tacos. The drinks were a little too strong for me but would probably be good for others. Enjoyed the setting and the staff was really nice.

Visited Taco Surf based on Tripadvisors recommendation and had the best guacamole I've ever had. Baja Fish and Shrimp Tacos were tied for first followed by the Al pastor. We will be back!

We had a little bit of a wait, but I'm so glad that we did. The food and service was excellent. When I told the waitress I didn't like onions, she was so accommodating. I wanted enchiladas, so she helped navigate which sauce and filling I should get. I ended up getting the red sauce with shredded beef. AMAZING! The... More

When we walked in I was afraid at first we would have to wait to be seated. They found a place for us immediately though. We were happy that they have a nice selection on the menu. Started with the guacamole which was delicious. The chips were nice and fresh. The waitress was attentive even though it was busy. All... More
