Went there twice in the last few days, once to eT there, once to take out. The food is prepared with care, almost with love I would dare say, large portions, good value, and cusom made, they give you little forms whereyou can specify exactly what you want. In your tacop, or burrito, or salad...Recommended!

I stopped in here today for lunch because the smells drifting into the street and the restaurant's blue and yellow facade caught my attention. I originally wanted a burrito but decided to try a stir-fry because they seemed more uniquely crafted. (You can get a really good burrito in tons of places) I went with the Seychelles - chopped carrots,... More

This is a fun place to eat with sort of a tropical islands feel, although bustling. Menu is quite varied & can be ordered straight off the wall board or customized using the available check-off sheets. Broad assortment of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, & salads, etc. Suggest reading through a menu before ordering as it is a lot to absorb from... More

This is a taco shop that is trying to pass as an upscale taqueria. We went to the Glover Park location on a Monday night and the place was pretty busy. After reading off the menu from a board above, you fill out a menu card and bring it up to the checkout. They only accept credit or debit cards,... More

The food was awesome. I had a 'Stir Fry' called 'Seychelles'. It was wonderful! Loved the ambience at the rooftop because the weather was really good and the good even better. It's a good place to go with family and friends both. There were a lot of youngsters.

My family moved to the neighborhood not long ago, but had not tried Surfside until tonight. The moment we made our order, nothing went well. For a fast casual restaurant, I expected to have our meal in a relative quick manner. But our order took 45 minutes to come out! We heard others in front of us complaining about the... More

All the classic choices. Burrito, tacos, salads, etc. The ordering system is efficient and effective. The food is slightly above average, but not greatly so. Doesn't seem to be a "very spicy" option. Not a bad choice for lunch.

This place never disappoints. I particularly enjoy their tacos with the soft corn tortillas, because they are not only delicious, but they don't completely fall apart once they get wet, and they manage to not be rubbery. I can pile on the salsa, guacamole and hot sauce, and the taco stays together. Happy! Great margaritas made by knowledgeable bartenders and... More

Limited menu. Pizza was good, but there are no proteins any where on the menu. The salad came as just a bunch of greens. Maybe its on trend, maybe urban, but no chicken or steak, good luck. Great for lent.
