Stopped in for a quick lunch. You order via sheets of paper with preprinted options. Pretty good and quick. Good prices but I can see during the rush where downstairs seating could be an issue. Appeared they also had an upstairs. Worth a try for good price and quick food.

The fish tacos are good as usual. Just grab a menu and construct your own taco or salad. Fresh ingredients. Make sure you have a plastic card with you because it doesn't accept cash anymore.

Nice rooftop, fantastic for a happy hour after work or school. Good burritos, tacos and quesadillas. A lot of different Mexican beers. Strongly recommended.

Their Shrimp tacos are to die for! They had fast service even at lunchtime. The flavor reminded me of tacos I had in the Islands. Authentic and delicious taste.

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
