Simply the best Mexican-Carribean food in all of New Smyrna Beach!

This place ROCKS! It's like being in a cabana on the beach, without the sand. We've never had a bad meal here and really look forward to their salmon special on Fridays. Can't beat the price on any of their dishes. Terrific staff, perfect spice, great menu. Can't ask for more than that.

This very casual restaurant has the best tacos in town. The friendly atmosphere consists of placing your order from a wide variety of items, finding a booth in a covered outside area, and having your food delivered. This is a great place for a quick, inexpensive, good quilty meal. Bring a jacket if it is chilly.

So if you want the best fresh mex with a florida coastal twist this is the place. The atmosphere can only be described as funky local hangout. We loved it. We arrived on a Friday at about 1:30 thinking the lunch rush would be over but a line fulled with locals still wrapped around the building. Even though the line... More

We ordered take out for the office. So delicious! I had the chimi with pork and some queso sauce. I will not wait so long next time. The pork was tender and flavorful. The portion size was plentiful. Everyone enjoyed the food. Seriously why did I wait so long to come back?

Only in town 2 days, and ate here TWICE - that's how good it is. Not your usual taco stand, as they really put a gourmet touch on everything they do. Highly recommend the Mexican Lasagna - it is spiced perfectly, and instead of lasagna noodles, they use fried sweet plantains...and top it with a flavorful Cilantro / Sour Cream... More

We went for lunch and ordered the three taco combo (2 beef and 1 chicken) with rice and beans.  Since this was our first time we may have missed something in the ordering process, the line was very long so studying the menu was not a good option.  We got our meal, and the tacos were good, meat, cheese lettuce,...

Finally caught this place without a big line. Sorry now I did not get here sooner and wait in line. My wife and I shared the chimichanga, nacho chips and beans and rice. Very good food and plentiful and the employees are a delight. very reasonable too. My wife said we will have to make this a once a week... More

The food is outstanding whether you order tacos, homemade soups or taco salads. The owners are friendly, always ready to make sure your food is well prepared and they make you feel like family. My kids and grandkids love the Taco Shack and we wish they were located in the state of Michigan as well.
