PROS: decor was fun, prices reasonable, complimentary valet parking, free refills on chips/salsa, kids menu, pretty good food. CONS:our service was fair, waitresses appear to be trying to look like they work at Hooter's with tight low cut shirts/short shorts... So I have to knock them on the trashiness of staff dress. Food was okay, not the greatest. I certainly... More

Friends of ours took us to TacoLu based on their excellent experiences. Tried to get there early around 530 and had to wait maybe 30 minutes for a table, can take up to 2 hours to get a table sometimes. Delicious, affordable food, but pricey alcoholic beverages. Service was great, waitress very nice, took too long to get our drinks... More

Plan on having a margarita or two because you'll probably have a wait. But it is worth it. They do not take reservations and the parking is limited. They do have free valet parking (don't forget the tip) so that revolves any parking issues. We enjoyed the food and would recommend for good Mexican food.

We had despaired of ever finding passable Mexican food in the Jax area. Until we discovered TacoLu, just over the bridge on Beach Blvd. as you're heading to Jax Beach. This place has a fun, funky vibe and is bustling with customers all day long. We ate there today at 3:15 and cars were pulling up the whole time we... More

This place lives up to its reputation! A must visit when in the area. Parking was tight but they offer valet. Go early, to avoid any wait.

Let me begin by saying this place gets packed fast. The chips and salsa were ok. I tried two tacos, the tacolu verde and the brisket. I immediately wished I had gotten two brisket tacos instead. The Tacolu verde was average at best but the brisket taco was amazing. I sampled my girlfriend's $10 taco (which is actually like $4-5)... More

The bar was super crowded, service half-hearted. Chips and salsa at the bar were good, margaritas only so-so. Wait was an hour, as quoted. Server seemed high, and was very slow. Had to ask for napkins & silverware, beet served warm in cans (canned beer?!) and food just OK. Next time, we'll go to Cantina Laredo.

This place has an amazing atmosphere. They text you when your table is ready. We were told a 45 min wait and it was exactly that. The bar was crowded but the staff was very attentive to the patrons waiting to b seated. It was very loud, but in a good way! The only Down side is they only have... More

Go for the tequila, but don't eat anything. A better choice would be just up the road at La Nopalera.

I will start by saying the type of food isn't my style, but my children and their friends love it. I love the part that the service is AMAZING! I love that I can have my vehicle valet parked and not worry about the crowds! Their seating program is wonderful--they text you when your seat is ready! The servers are... More
