My wife joined me on business trip to Long Beach so we decided to tour Seal Beach and found this place for supper. It presents as a bit of a hole in the wall, so we figured it probably was a great place to eat. We were right! Being Taco Tuesday, we each ordered a variety which were on special,... More

Stayed nearby and ate here three times in a week enjoyed it each time. The staff were friendly and efficient. Most importantly the food was delicious, especially the Baja Fish Tacos. Margaritas were nice as well.

It's not the best Mexican I've ever had but the food was tasty and reasonably priced. We had a salad, a lunch special, a margaritas and a drink for $20 bucks.. not bad for 2 people..

Taco surf is a classic in the area for mexican food. Plates are big enough, good decoration, nice music and friendly staff. Probably, one of the best option in the area, if you do not want to spend a lot of money on dinner or lunch.

Never disappointed by food to go. Tonight we ordered Baha fish tacos and my favorite Brandy salad and beef taquitos. When they say it will be ready for pickup in 10 minutes, it is ready in 10 minutes! Always fresh, always yummy!

Husband and I stopped in to have a couple drinks.Very friendly staff.The chips and salsa was delicious. Great atmosphere. A flow of customers was constant. Food looked good but we were not hungry so just had chips and salsa. We plan to go back soon and order food.
