“best, freshest Mexican food in Jacksonville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This restaurant is actually in Jacksonville Beach, not Jacksonville proper. The place is always busy and parking can be a real problem, so try to avoid peak times. They need a serious parking lot for such a busy place. The food is fresh and inventive. I have enever ordered anything that was not very good. The servicers are young, attractive and efficient. This is a great place - just add extra time for dealing with the wait andthe parking.

“Fabulous Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

If you are looking for freshly prepared delicious food, great drinks and a fun time, this is the place to go! There is usually a wait on the weekends, but it is well worth it.

“Baja Mexico in the heart of Jacksonville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Visiting Tacolu is a dining experience not to be missed. If you enjoy or even crave authentic Baja Mexican cuisine, TacoLu is the spot to satisfy your cravings. The Mexican atmosphere is great. The food is inexpensive and delicious. The Margaritas... ohhh the Margaritas! Just try one. Enough said. TacoLu is located in a small venue. Thankfully they offer free valet parking. There is almost always a wait and during peak times, it can be a very long wait. But trust me, this place is worth the wait.

“Good eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This place has some really great tacos. I tried the Carne Royal because I heard that it was awesome and it was a delight. Carne Asada, Brie Cheese, and grapes. 4.99 Wow. they have some others for 2.99 too. Pretty lively scene there on the weekends too so expect to wait to be seated. I was surprised that they did not have Corona in a bottle but the Presidente was pretty good anyway. Great place to grab a bite for an informal date or to meet with friends. I shall return.
