Love this place. Kind of a hole in the wall. Awesome food/. A little hot in the building while ordering but blackened shrimp tacos and The shrimp ceviche is great :)

I always make it a point to stop here every time I visit Laguna Beach, even for just a snack. I was introduced to this rad little taco joint on the PCH by my love who has been coming here since high school (almost 20 years ago-- yikes!). I can't say that I'm into everything on their menu, but their... More

Fantastic hole in the wall. The mahi mahi taco was the best fish taco ever. My son loved the chicken quesadilla. Not the most friendly dude at the counter.

I have to eat here every time I visit, because I CRAVE Taco Loco's awesome flavors! Ever had Shrimp Tacos to die for? Don't miss the opportunity! They've been tucked away in that little nook in PCH for years :)

Taco Loco is located in one of the mos beautiful cities of Orange County, being close to the beach you feel relaxed having one of their fish tacos or quesadillas ... Staff is very friendly and the food is awesome. Highly recommended to run away from busy OC freeways ... Enjoy.

I like calamari, don't love it, but like it. So it might seem unusual that while awaiting the gallows my request would be blackened calamari tacos from Taco Loco with a bean tostada chaser. Conservatives, don't let the edgy look of the place deter you. The calamari is always fresh. The person behind the counter will ask you two questions... More

Small sidewalk taco place with tasty fish tacos. Found portions rather small, but other than that a nice option for those looking for a quick eat.

The Nachos had avocado and shrimp in it was to die for! The tacos were pretty good too. It's very affordable as well!
