Love the fish tacos. Generous portions so 1 or 2 tacos and a side of rice and beans makes a great meal. Yummy Margaritas, too!

This is an amazing little spot. Come early to get a table! The steak is as tender as butter! Taco portion is rather small but reasonably priced.

Cute, small cafe in one of Virginia Beach’s oldest buildings. I love the chicken orange burrito with pineapple and citrus dressing on the salad. My hubbie, from Calif. says best chicken tacos he has ever eaten.

Friendly local taqueria located close to the beach. They have the absolute best fish tacos (yes, better than San Diego) that are served with a white sauce that is killer. Fair prices for food and drinks. Try one of their Mojitos with dinner.
