“Awesome Taco's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Banging Shrimp and the Royale are both worth th wait! The grape salsa with the steak in the Royale are an incredible combination. Can't wait to visit our kids again in Florida!

“Obsessed with the Lu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

I have never been disappointed in the food here. The Bangin Shrimp taco... there are no words to describe how delicious this taco is. And the prices can't be beat for this quality of food! Our service last time wasn't great. We had to sit with 5 people at a 4 person table, which was a bit uncomfortable, but when the food arrived I forgot all about it and had no problem elbowing people to get to my food. Delicious food, great ambience, and good drinks specials.

“Cheap but, good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Went here on recommendation from my nephew. Seems to be a popular place with the locals. My nephew recommended we try the scallop tacos. They were not on the menu so we asked the waitress. She gave us a list of tacos not on the menu. I got the scallop taco and the salmon taco and my husband got the scallop taco and bang bang shrimp taco. They were wonderful. Our waitress, Sam, was very attentive, helpful and our water glasses never were empty. Very good pricing, and the atmosphere is like a voodoo store but, very fun. Will positively go again.

“Fun atmosphere, cheap, really yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We arrived 7:30 and waited for a table, Sunday night.
Our server was over stretched, but good.
The dining room was clearing out as we dined.
The tacos were very tasty, nicely prepared, and cheap.
Would definitely want to return next trip, just arrive later.

“Always improving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Since my first review, Tacolu's moved a mile down the road to a much larger location, next to Adventure Landing. The larger space is wonderful , and yet if you try to eat there on Saturday at their 10-2 buffet, be prepared to wait 30 minutes or longer, especially if arriving after noon. (A page to your cell phone allows you to wander around, sit out front on benches, in a garden setting, or in the bar).

They have the BEST salsa of several Mexican restaurants in the area. The wait staff brings that and chips for you on your arrival. Known for their tacos, their brunch offers many breakfast favorites . Tacos, by the way, can be served on lettuce leaves if you prefer.for $.50 extra.

Not into tacos ? Try other familiar offers, salads, quesadillas, fish of the day, to name a few.

The outdoor patio is great in cooler months, and the bar continues to be a welcoming, colorful gathering spot!

Can not beat their food!
