Great tacos, long wait and very crowded

I mean, I love my fish tacos, these were outstanding. But about 150 of my friends agreed so it was a bit long of a wait. Find an off time to go and enjoy! Delicious.

This place was around the corner from our B&B and we needed a bathroom. So we ate here. The counter service was poor, but the food was good. A party kind of atmosphere here.

good, fast, relaxed atmosphere. We love stopping after a day at the beach. Beach wear is acceptable. Expect lines, but they are very quick so we have never waited long.

Good sign when there is a line out the door and place is bumping! We got a variety of tacos and all were delicious! the vibe is very young and fun music and the food is casual, but tasty. It was a perfect ending to a beach day!

This is a no frills spot to pick up a quick, cheap lunch. Seems to be a favorite spot for millenials. If you've never been there before, it is at first a bit confusing. There is no hostess seating your or waitress to take your order. You walk up to a counter, with a hugh menu board and place your... More

Surf Taco Belmar lives up to the Surf Taco expectations. Their menu is huge and the food is fresh, made to order and customized to our liking. The garlic shrimp tacos are perfectly seasoned and the cabbage slaw is a great savory contrast. The atmosphere is perfect mixture of beach decor and upscale fast food. We eat here every time...
