“Relaxing and casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I had lunch with a business associate for a first visit to this restaurant. The General Manager Andre Ulloa greeted us and our server Erin was super. The menu is a nice size and well priced. Will definitely go again for dinner.

“Great Casual Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Shore Hotel. The chicken quesadilla was delicious and served with freshly made salsa, guacamole and chips. The shrimp cerviche was excellent. It gets very busy so make a reservations in advance. Great atmosphere. Ask for a table outside.

“Muy bueno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Great pitchers of drinks, wonderful tacos (try the pork belly or mole) and fantastic Mexican corn-on-the-cob. Add it to your rotation.

“Tacos DONE RIGHT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

While staying at the beautiful Shore Hotel, we stumbled upon this gem of a taco restaurant, which to our surprise is owned by Shore Hotel. This place rocks! The tacos, the drinks, the atmosphere (I mean you're right on Ocean Ave, c'mon!), everything was perfect. My fiance and I will for sure be back! If you like a good margarita and various type tacos then you will not be disappointed. Thanks Blue Plate Taco!

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The service and food were great. A little pricey but the free Wi-Fi is very convenient. You can sit at the window and watch the ocean.
