The regular fish taco on the menu is way better than the Taco Thursday. I can say you get what you pay for! The little beer in the buckets are the best as they stay so cold. The kids loved their quesadilla and the nachos, but cheese sauce was too spicy for them.

Weekdays from 2-6 (2-5 on Friday) -- selected beers and tacos are super cheap. BEST salsa in town. The patio provides about 8 tables, love sitting outside - great view of 2nd Street

Love their salsa and enjoyed our meal but was disappointed with the margarita. OK place to go on 2nd ave but I'm sure there is better Mexican in the area.

While visiting Long Beach on a Saturday we were looking for a place to get a bite to eat for lunch. We struck out at a couple places on 2nd street but we're glad to come across Taco Surf. Of course I checked "Trip Advisor" for reviews and we chose to try it out. We were not disappointed. Taco Surf... More

My husband and I frequently eat here. The food is delicious. The carnitas wet burrito is the best one I've had so far. The carne Asada is good too

Chips, street tacos, beer. It's a great way to start the evening. Even the regular menu items are good and are priced nicely. Belmont Shore is a nice place to walk around and relax with the locals, also.

Happened into Taco Surf by accident. OUTSTANDING. I had a lunch special that was a carne asada soup with rice beans and tortillas, have to say it was one of the best Mexican fares I have ever had and I am half Mexican. My wife had the flautas, she also said they were in the top she has ever had.... More

YuM! It would be a shame to come to LBC and not try their fish tacos! Baja Fish Tacos are absolutely delicious. I think their secret is in the pink sauce. They also have good happy hour specials.

Had lunch with a friend the other day. First off, the service was excellent. We did not have to ask for refills etc. because our server was right on top of our needs. We decided to sit outside because of the fantastic weather. This became a problem because all of the flies on the patio. Maybe the humidity is bringing... More
