This is FRESH!! You don't get a lot of choice of tacos - veggie or beef. What you do get is fresh veggies, avocado and homemade sauce on a burrito grilled in front of you as you shoot the breeze with Jay or Brittany...whichever is manning the Taco Star.
If you want a smoothie, or fruit salad, they'll chop up the fruit once you've ordered. You don't want papaya in that? No problem, tell them whatever you do or don't like and they'll adjust accordingly. (This is great news for a mom of fussy kids.)
Don't forget to get the banana bread or brownie. The kids ordered them every time and had them scarfed down so fast we never got a taste!! But no worries, they've got ice cold beers and a truly tasty meal for cheap to make us parents happy!!

We surfed Playa Grande 3 days in a row and I probably ate 4 tacos a day. I lived off of their vegetarian tacos and gatorade. Im still thinking about them and its been a week. What a gem in the middle of nowhere.

Taco Star is the only place on the beach with a great view and comfortable hammocks. There is a bar where you can sit and order your tacos and cold drinks. The tacos are made with love from Brittany, Yei, or Abner. All three have smiles and positive energy all the time, so clients feel welcome going there for a quick lunch. And because the only thing on the menu is tacos, they practice all day and have got it down to a science. They also have other odds and ends, like surf wax and banana bread. I encourage everyone to stop by for a taco and a refreshing drink while hanging out on the beach in Playa Grande.
