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

I have been going to surf taco with my family for number of years. I just realized that I never reviewed. If you want a fresh and tasty lunch or dinner this is the place for you. They have a number of items that will suit anybody's needs. I usually get the combo which is two tacos rice beans and... 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...

There is so much competition for Mexican food in Monmouth county. If your in Belmar and want a quick meal this will suffice. Just know there are better options out there

We love Surf Taco, especially the one in Belmar. The chicken teriyaki bowl is lights out delicious. We also love their basic bean & cheese burritos. Everything on the menu is yummy.

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 !!!!!!
