My taco tasted like it had some sort of butter or oil in it. Chips weren't salty enough. Salsa was OK. Drink machine is really cool. Bad location.

I'll take Surf Taco over Chipotle or Moe's any day of the week. I've been coming here for years and the food is always on point. My favorite is the #4 combo--a Maverick burrito and a Surf Taco. Surf Taco uses fresh ingredients and you can taste the difference. Their flavor combinations are unique and everything on the menu is... More

A great find . Super fresh, very reasonable and more than enough quantity to boot. Very family friendly. The seating area is small , and many do take out. You can bring your own beer or wine which we did to compliment our meal A must do if you like quick, delicious and reasonably priced meals !!!!!!

We had huge burritos, loved the salsa bar. Nice roasted flavor to the salsas. Fish tacos were yummy too. Very casual, relaxed atmosphere. Nice for an after beach dinner.

After a day at the beach, we went to this very busy Surf Taco. Line was out the door, but since we called our order in 15 minutes ahead of time, when we arrived our order was ready. I ordered three Mahi Tacos which was a great choice. The chopped pineapple and a squeeze hint of lime pulled everything together... More

You're at the Jersey Shore. It's a chain restaurant. Get the fish tacos. They have a salsa bar and you can choose your heat and other preferences. I love it on the go or sit down with a group of people who are here to visit with me. It has a beach ambiance and is consistent.

Great place to eat after a day at the beach, line and wait could get long but worth it if in the mood for tacos and burritos. The surf taco is really good with lots of fried cod and they're really big. Burritos are good too and if in the mood for fries the waffle fries are really good, especially... More

I was looking forward to a tasty lunch as most reviews claimed. However, tacos were bland and mediocre at best. Also the steak burritos were overstuffed with rice that all I tasted was rice, beans and parsley (?) I was not expecting herbs in my burrito. Best thing we did was call our orders in 15 minutes in advance otherwise,... More

Excellent food, easy ordering, salsa bar and more! Perfect place to stop when craving Mexican food with a "shore" feeling. You order your food at the counter and they will bring it to you. Keep an eye out for any specials as well. They offer three different types of salsa which are great and a fountain soda machine containing every... More

Always great for my daily taco / burrito craving. The Jenk's and Maverick's burritos are delicious -- can't recommend them highly enough. Also the waffle fries are sooo good, and the salsa bar is great, something for everybody there. Great location and great food. Bit on the expensive side but if you're not eating there everyday hey it's ok.
