We have been to this restaurant many times and are always satisifed. The menu is a little thin for vegetarians, but the dishes offered are really good. The menu is extensive. Service is always good, Beer is reasonably priced. Expect to wait during peak times (weekends and evenings).

We were visiting Seal Beach on a nice sunny day and wanted to stop somewhere for a light lunch. Tacos sounded like just the ticket. We expected to find fast food but were surprised with the quality of the carnitas and fish tacos. Fully loaded tacos with every good thing you would want, cabbage, lettuce, salsa and guacamole. Well worth... More

My husband and I went here for a date. The experience was just okay. Taco surf used to have fresh tortilla chips but it seems like they are store bought now. The staff was friendly, but did not come around to ask if we wanted a second round of drinks. The meals were okay. If you are looking for Mexican... More

This is not my favorite Mexican restaurant. It is hard to find healthy food. And I don't appreciate getting a salad of iceberg lettuce. My daughter, on the other hand, loves this place!!

Muy Bueno! Great crunchy fried fish taco and shrimp taco....really hit the spot. Our server was delightful and the manager, Frank, was very friendly asking us to come back for some of their specialties. Their guacamole was perfect and the black beans were done just right...we will be back. Great atmosphere for a small little joint!
