We were lucky to get into Taco Loco on a busy night. This Mexican restaurant in a former famous surfers shop was busy for good reason. The atmosphere is very casual; the staff is friendly and efficient; and, the food is plentiful and fabulous.

Nice little no frills taco place. A little pricey but it’s Laguna Beach so it’s to be expected. The Sangria was $5.25 a glass and was sooo good! I would come back here just for the Sangria. I ordered the beef nachos and they were...More

We only had fish tacos (calamari, shrimp and blackened fish). You pick what you’d like on them, so everyone can be happy. Many other things to order. Nice out door seating area. You can get a beer too!

Really good, and the employees are very friendly. The food’s a little on the pricey side, but most things in Laguna are. I’ve been here a few times, the food is always good and worth returning for.

Tiny taco joint on PCH that has a ton of flavor and local vibe. Nice place to chill out after a day on the boardwalk. Patio is great for people watching and having a couple beers as well. Don’t miss the mushroom tacos and anything...More
