Stopped for a quick bite, and the line moved quickly...always a line. Fish tacos and steak tacos very tasty. Loved the sauce on the steak tacos. Yellow rice and beans very good also. Decent prices, great presentation, yet quick and simple, all in one. Excellent customer service. We need to try the burritos, taco salad, or Cuban sandwich. Saw all... More

Great American slant on Mexican Food including Fish Tacos, Burritos and Quesadillas, Chips and Salsa are outstanding. Don't eat too much you will spoil your lunch. Reasonable Draft Beers. Nice outdoor canopied seating area. Friendly staff and good crowd. NSB top ten.

I absolutely LOVE this quaint little local place. If you are looking for fancy...this is NOT it; however; if you are looking for great food in a fun atmosphere...this is definitely the place to go. Outside seating picnic table style with the beach/surfing decor is lots of fun and the owners are fantastic. Anytime we have family or friends visiting,... More

I eat here several times a week. Food is outstanding and so reasonably priced for portion size. I get the steak chimichanga and it cannot be beat.

Our family is new to the NSB area & we were starting to get frustrated at how expensive Mexican food can be here vs where we moved from! I found this location through Trip Advisor & am so happy we did! Quick service, even though the line was long! The food was awesome! I love the chipotle dressing they used... More

In the area for 10 days, ate at the Taco Shack three times! One day I had the Shack-a-ladas. Delish! The next trip I had the Phatty Pastelon that is described as Puerto Rican lasagna. Again, Delish! So good I looked up a recipe and am going to try and make it when I am suffering in the cold winter... More

We ate here for the first time last night. We have been wanting to try it and glad we did. As luck would have it, it was dollar taco night. So we had tacos and a chimichanga. Everything tasted great. This is an open air establishment with limited seating so be prepared to take your food with you. They are... More
