Great fast food

This is always a great tasty option for fast food/take out. The surf burrito is awesome, as is the beef/been/cheese burrito. The salsa are great and it is a sure-fire crowd pleaser for kids. When you eat in, you can play some foosball and watch surf videos.

Relax, get in line, place your order and get Great tacos. While it might take a little longer to get your food, but it's worth it. Much less expensive than fancy places and you only tip the counter person a fraction of what you would at a sit down place with waitstaff. Did I mention the Good food?

It was so good the first night that we went back the next night and it wasn't good...it was great! The fish taco and the chicken tacos that we first tried paled in comparison to the vegetable tacos. The 4 varieties of salsa on the salsa bar where you can help yourself are amazing. The staff is great, very patient... More

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.

Not the best of the Surf Taco chains, but still consistent food. Ridiculous wait times for food in the summer.

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
