“Excellent taco's with an amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

OMG, the Korean short rib taco was fantastic! Great flavor and awsome sauces to go with it. The combo is almost too much food (2 taco's, beans, rice & grilled corn on the cob). And what a view! Looking out over hollywood beach from under a thatch roof doesn't get any better.

“Tacos on the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I loved this beachside restaurant in Hollywood Fla. The have the most amazing mango margaritas and the food is excellent. You can sit and look out at the ocean while you eat. I can't wait to go back.

“Taco Spot vs. Taco Beach Shack”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I went to both places in the same week and ordered the Grilled Fish soft taco combo dinner. What a big difference between the two.
We first went to Taco Beach Shack. First you have three choices for soft taco shells, flour, corn and wheat. You get (3) tacos, beans, rice and Mexican parmesan cheese corn on the cob. Everything on the tacos seemed fresh, the cabbage and fish. They also put a nice sauce in the taco which gave it a great flavor. The Mexican corn was very tasty and large portion. The waiter came by about every five minutes to see if we were alright and needed fresh drinks. It had a nice outdoor feel.
Two nights later we went to the Taco Spot. We were offered only flour soft taco shells. You get (2) tacos, beans, rice and kind of Mexican parmesan cheese corn on the cob. The cabbage in the taco was not fresh and not shredded small enough. The corn on the cob was very small and had very little seasoning. There was no kind of sauce on the taco and it was very dry. The soft taco shells were even falling apart. Besides the below average tacos the service was horrible.
Our first round of beers were done when our waitress brought the food to our table and asked if we wanted another round with our dinner and we all replied “YES”. We began eating thinking our drinks would arrive BUT they never did and we finished our meals. It seemed our waitress was MIA at times and also running around with her head down during our dinner. I finally found her behind the counter and mentioned to her that she forgot our drinks and paid our bill right there. We got out of there fast so we could get a drink somewhere else to wash our dinner down.
In conclusion the Taco Beach Shack seemed way better than the Taco Spot. The Shack was the better deal. It had good service, good food and looked cleaned. The only negative was the entertainer playing that night had some issues with their sound system and making loud feedback noises.
The only positive with the Taco Spot is the view. Everything else was below average and the place didn’t seem that clean. They’re many other places that have that same view so it may be worth to find another. There is no way they should have a high rating on Trip Advisor.

Wife & I stopped here for a quick bite Sunday afternoon. The food and service were good and the beers were cold. Being on the boardwalk, it is a great people watching spot
