Surf Taco has a teriffic and varie menu. Attentive counter staff with table delivery. Food is always freshly prepared and delicious. Just enough room in the shop for the crowds to enjoy the meals.

“Perfect little local beach taco joint.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Surf Taco is a perfect beach taco joint - super mellow, kind of dive-y, with really good, really cheap tacos. The chips are crispy and not greasy. Salsa comes in several options - verde, mild, baja and hot. Taco varieties are endless - mango shrimp, veggie, steak, chicken. The kids menu has awesome kid-sized tacos, including a chicken tender taco that successfully blends two of kid's favorite things (chicken fingers and tacos!) The nachos are ridiculously huge and delicious - enough to share with the entire cast of Jersey Shore and them some. There's other stuff here, I think, but really it's all about the tacos. Watch surfing competitions on the TVs while you wait for your takeaway.

“SURF THE TACO!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

If you like laidback Mexican, eating and watching local surf flics, then Surf Taco is the place for you. The Wall of Fame contains local surf heros who may be sitting next to you eating the Jersey Famous Buffalo Soldier or the Maverick's Burrito! Tacos are all great and salads to match as well. Smoothies will not disappoint. If you are up for a food challenge, you can try the Tsunami Challenge and get your picture on the Wall of Fame! Our kids love Surf Taco!

“Soggy”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The food was soggy and wasn't fresh at all. Tacos didn't have much meat in them. It was not a good experience at all.

“Just ok....”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

It was truly just ok, atmosphere feels like a surf shop, no frills, no high prices and slightly better than Taco Bell
