Average food and average prices. If you're looking for a quick, casual meal this is the place. It's an order yourself/bus your own restaurant so there's no hostess or waitstaff. Very low key and a step up over fast food.

After seeing the name in a few beach towns we gave it a try. While the wait was a little long they were very good. I liked how they served it on a pile of tortillas and that there was a salsa bar to try different salsas.

Nice little place to get tacos, burritos, etc. I especially enjoy the steak quesadilla. This isn't authentic Mexican food, but it's really good nonetheless. Their salsa bar is also very nice. I usually stick to the salsa verde, but I'm sure the other salsas are good.

Stumbled onto this place while bicycling. A small chain of 4 stores. This location was very busy so we tried it. We had a Mahi Mahi taco and a Salmon taco. $5.75 each and comes with Mexican style chips. 4 kinds of home made salsa sauce available at the salsa bar. Other types of tacos available Limited out door seating... More

If you want a quick and tasty Mexican meal, this is the place to go! The food is good, but not very cheap. The atmosphere is one of a surfer bar and their salsa bar can't be beat!!

Surf Taco has a friendly staff, fresh food, vegetarian options and good guac. Food is served fast, and there is a salsa bar to suit every taste. Simple and delicious.

Very reasonably priced and very good food. Quick service. Clean restaurant and friendly staff. Parking was tight, but was expected as it was a Friday night. Would return.
