When we first walked in the door, I debated whether we made the right choice for lunch that afternoon. The place was packed and we couldn't even get through the door to request for a table. After a little bit of patience, we were seated and finally understood the utter insanity that made this restaurant a fire hazard: a World... More

We've heard so many great things about TacoLu and finally had the chance to try it. So glad we did! We timed it perfectly and arrived just before noon on Sunday. We didn't have to wait at all and had a great table on the deck. The salmon taco and red snapper taco (both specials today) were our faves. The... More

I ate here with some coworkers while we were in Jacksonville. The food is all made from fresh ingredients, the prices are about average. But the wait...this place is so popular that there is usually a pretty long wait to be seated. While the food was good, it was very loud and hard to hear the waitress.

The chips and salsa were awesome. In fact, my husband bought some to take home. I had the brisket quesadilla. Not your average quesadilla. It was huge and very filling. Very good. Our server was very friendly. The restaurant itself doesn't have much ambiance and it's kind of dark... and NOISY. I would go back again though.

The food here is amazing. I highly recommend the Carne Asade steak tacos. The service was fast and friendly and the atmosphere was great. Family of 4 ate for just shy of $60 with tip.

The atmosphere is lively and the tacos are unique! They have a wide variety of tacos and Mexican inspired food. The bar area can get pretty crowded, and I prefer the outside seating. The staff are speedy and helpful. The wide variety of drinks are refreshing.

My wife and I have driven by this place a thousand times and it always seems busy. This restaurant location has been two other establishments before, and we dined at both before they closed. Then Tacolu moved in from further down Beach Blvd. So, in spite of some mediocre reviews and what looked to be a likely wait for a... More

I've lived in JAX 3 years and not found one restaurant with really great food....until today. This place is fantastic with an inspired menu, vibrant ambience, and killer tasty drinks. I had the avocado tacos with carne asade, suiza enchiladas, Mexican corn, charro beans, cilantro lime rice, a house margarita (outstanding BTW) and sopapillas for dessert. It was a flavor... More
