It's just Americanized Mexican food, my least favorite kind. If you are going to eat Mexican , don't you want it to taste authentic ? I can not comprehend the amount of business that this place drives. I mean it's okay , but to have valet parking and crowds? I'm perplexed.

Quaint venue with lots to look at, brick walls create home like feel. Service was above average, server energetic, knowledgeable. Chips and salsa homemade. Very busy place, took some time to get food,but once received was excellent. Drinks during non happy hour were 8$ Expensive and not worth it. Overall great. Valet parking at a taco joint who would have... More

The tacos are very good. But, paying $5.00 for a taco is a little steep (in my opinion). Parking is terrible (non-existent). The restaurant is poorly ventilated, really hot in July. However, staff was excellent.

We decided to try this #2 place in Jacksonville Beach. This place should be #1 The staff was great, very informative and helpful. The food was amazing. The guacamole was like nothing I had ever had, very flavorful. The salsa was also very good. We ordered the carne asada, carnitas, the $10 taco and Deb's Verde. They were all so... More

It's a beaches staple. Can't be missed, if you're in town for just a few days. I've rarely tasted anything I don't enjoy. They could improve the beer selection, which consists of just Dos Equis amber and lager on draughts (others available in bottles). I'm not much of a tequila person, but that's obviously their thing (based on the decor,... More

My friend and I were both very pleased with Tacolu. Being from out of town, we did a Yelp search and Tacolu was rated as one of the top restaurants in the area and it clearly lived up to the rating. The guacamole and salsa starters were excellent. We thought that the Mahi taco with Mango Salsa was exceptionally good... More

Went to here to eat when we stopped in town to see my brother in law. Cool funky little vibe to the place. Very crowded. 45 min wait at 5 pm. So be ready to wait. The tacos are the best I've ever ate. I had the bangin shrimp, brisket, and yard bird. Incredible. The Mexican street corn side is... More

TacoLu is one of Jax Beach's most popular restaurants. Their chips and salsa are delicious and brought to your table as soon as your drink orders are in. The choice of tacos are endless and each one scrumptious. The Mexican Street Corn is a side I recommend. You can have a great meal for a low price and leave happy!
