“not fancy, solid food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Great place for a casual bite, reasonably priced in a pricey city. Open very late, across the street from Pacific Edge, plenty of guacamole on delicious fillings.

“Different in a Good Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

I love tacos. Taco Loco makes blackened fish tacos that are delicious. They come in a flour tortilla topped with an avocado salsa that is incredible. I noticed some really interesting burgers on the menu too including a mahi burger... Gonna have to go back and try that next visit!

“Didn't like the mahi fish tacos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The signature fish taco was dry and nondescript. We had better fish tacos at Chronic Taco. We also ordered some nachos that were good for the fresh avocado and kinda made up for the not so good tacos.

“Go Loco for Tacos - Best Taco Spot in Laguna!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Southern California has perhaps one of the best selection of Mexican restaurants based on it’s proximity to Mexico so with so much choice in SoCal how can you be sure where to have the best burrito or tastiest taco? When I stayed with friends on the beautiful stretch between LA and San Diego I was taken to the ‘best taco joint in town’ – Taco Loco. The sidewalk cafe that is just steps from the beautiful sands of Laguna Beach boast a huge selection of tacos including calamari and swordfish to make your mouth water after a day at the beach! Pick up your surfboard and head to the beautiful beachs of Laguna and stop by here afterwards for a cerveza and taco as you watch the sun go down… that’s what life is all about in sunny California!

“Perfect Beach Taco Shack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

perfect tacos that would match any in hawaii. reasonable price and service with a smile. only downside (small one) is you can't drink beer/wine on the sidewalk because of city ordinance.
