Catering from Surf Taco

The catering was enjoyed by all at the party. The salad with pineapple and chicken was unusual and a big hit with the salad lovers.

Good tacos. I think they should give you two instead of one. The fish taco I had was very good and all the food seemed fresh.

The ambiance is not great but we love Surf Taco. The Manasquan branch is nicer and has more room than the one in Point Pleasant Beach. Our favorite is the coconut shrimp taco with mangoes and guacamole. This restaurant is self service. You order and then pick the food up when your number is called.

This is not really Mexican food at all, perhaps Californian. Nice salsas, food slightly boring, could use a bit more spice in the food itself, but it still beats the large chains.

Eat in or take out, fresh all the time. Delicious tacos, burritos, with chicken, fish or beef. The best guacamole ever with hot chips and a salsa bat. Really delicious.
