I eat here all the time. I get basically one of three dishes - fajitas, enchiladas or the maverick burrito. Food is pretty good. Service is fast - they give you a number and then bring your food. The chicken fajitas I got yesterday were decent, the chicken was a bit dry. However, the meal, with a soda, was $12. How can you beat that? Last night the place was loud - but that was a Friday night. Also, they have no control over the noise. They have a bar for drinks and there was an ecelectic mix of people and families. You won't be disappointed (unless you hate noise).

This place is divided into a bar on one side and a non waiter/waitress restaurant on the other. You place your food order and it will be brought out to you. The food was brought to the table in a short time and was very fresh and good. Prices are good for what you get. I had a few of the tacos and everyone was tasty. The place is cramp though. Tables are bumped together and people waiting online might as well join you at your table! I would enjoy this place as a take out restaurant

We love Surf Taco. We used to go to one in Belmar where you could byob. We found this Surf Taco in Jackson that has a great bar. Happy hour everyday 4pm-6pm. Can get a pint of Dos Equis on tap for $2 and Margaritas that are large, delicious and strong for $3.50. Nachos are half price at happy hour and the portion is huge. They are delicious with guacamole, black beans, cheese, salsa, sour cream and chips. The menu is extensive and everything is delicious.The surf tacos with fried fish pieces and shredded cabbage are terrific. We always bring leftovers home that are yummy the next day.

We were impressed when we walked in, atmosphere was casual and relaxing, no need to dress up. We sat there for at least 7 minutes before we stopped a staff member to ask what the process for ordering was...a nice way of saying,, "hey what do you have to do to get a waitress around here"? We were then told it was counter only, until 5...oh ok thanx for letting us sit here...anyway, ordered Taco salad. Awful! everything was cold, taco beef was ground very fine and tasted like it came from a can. my husbands burrito wasn't wrapped correctly spilled out all over and cold. Fortunately the acoustic entertainment, Billy Hector, was spot on as usual!
