“Fast Food by the Pacific”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

In response to the recent "Restaurants with Best Views," posting by trip advisor, it might seem unseemly to include a fast food restaurant with the list, but the Taco Bell at Linda Mar beach in Pacifica, California, (just a few miles away from where the Maverics surf competition takes place) has to be the best fast food restaurant's view in the world. It's perched right on the ocean, and you can enjoy either the water or the surfers changing into and out of their wetsuits in the parking lot next door.

“Fun beach stop and so inexpensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Sounds crazy but this Taco bell is right on the beach in Pacifica. It is easy to get to and you can take your food out to the beach for a seaside picnic. Best of all you can eat for about $5 per person or less. It gets crowded on days with good weather but a decent meal anyway. Kids love this place and you can spend the day at the beach in the same trip. One of the quirky pluses of Pacifica.

“Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Everyone loves the tacos, but add the view, you get the best Taco Bell anywhere.
We go there often. You can take the stairs off the patio, go walk on the beach.
I took a picture once of the sunset over the water, posted it on my Facebook,
My out of town friends thought I stole the picture from someone.

“Weekend getaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We did not eat here but it is located right on a long streatch of beach with the only place for beach goers to grab a quick bite of drink. Kind of Cool. I think that a restraunt would be better served there as well. Great views.
