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.

This place is good for a quick bite or order and take home. It can get very crowded and loud. It usually has young people eating there and hanging out. They do have a decent menu to choose from.

What a nice little place! Located just a few blocks from the beach, Surf Taco is better than anything you'll get on the boardwalk. We walked in, placed our order, and got our food delivered to our table in under 10 minutes. I got the surf burrito with cod. All the ingredients were fresh, even the fish, which I was... More

My title about sums it up... Everyone in our party (young and old) loved their food! Quick, friendly service and the salsa rocks. A new must-visit when in the Point!

I live locally and have been coming here since the summer it opened. The food has only gotten better and I love the service. Taco's are a little small but I suggest ordering two if one doesn't fill you up. Burritos are just the right size and filling.
