“delicious inexpensive eats in Half Moon Bay”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

We enjoyed some pork tamales, tacos, horchata and aguas fresas - yum! The food was very wholesome and fresh, the prices very reasonable. It was the perfect lunch! Recommended to us by the first two locals we asked for advice. Conveniently located next to Rite Aid. Clean but nothin' fancy.

“Best Seafood Tacos Ever”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Found The Happy Taco by talking to the housekeepers at the hotel. The crowds are testimony to the quality of their food and the preparation. Don't miss it if you are in the area. Best seafood tacos I have ever had.

“Great fresh local mexican food!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Love this place. Think of it like 3 Amigos was 5 years ago. It's great food, great quality and service but a very small venue frequented primarily by locals. Located right next to Rite Aid (New Leaf Shopping Center).

“beef tacos, chicken burritos were outstanding; enchiladas were meh”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

I got one of many of the major dishes. The shrimp tacos were okay, the enchiladas were very uninspired and had boring and out of the can sauce.

But the beef tacos were really really outstanding. They were much closer to steak tacos. Note that their tacos are all soft maize, not hard. The chicken burrito was also remarkably good wtih much better spicing then the enchiladas. The refried beans and rice, also tasty. Recommended, but a it is hit and miss.
