El Loco Taco is not to be missed! The fresh, flavorful ingredients make for an amazing experience. We recommend the Birria Taco. Braised beef taco with a soup to dip that taco in. Extremely tasty. Lots of choices and always something new to try. Locals...are lucky to have this spot to enjoy.More
Our favourite place to eat in town! Best chicken wings I have ever had and I am a wing expert! They take the extra time and SMOKE THEM!!! YUMMM!! The Al Pastor tacos created by chef Adam are absolutely my favourite taco but you really...can’t go wrong and everytime we go there we are treated like family coming home. Tom is such a gift to this community and so is el Loco taco!!More
Incredibly friendly staff and owners. We came for breakfast and were blow away by the delicious beef and pork tacos. The quesadilla was the best I’d ever had. For dessert (which we ate first) we had a ridiculously delicious chocolate cupcake with coffee glaze and...the best old fashioned donut that ever was created. We also left with a beautifully balanced americano and a sourdough that I can’t wait to eat later. Come now and often. You won’t be disappointed.More
I cannot say enough good things about this place ! We went in, because I saw the keto coffee sign ( best keto coffee of my life ! ) and then 5 of us came back for dinner because the owner, Tom said he could...make me a keto taco ( I love Mexican food, and have even had authentic Mexican food cooked by a Mexican friend before, but this was by far the most delicious taco I've ever had in my life ) keto, vegetarian, you name it, they did it & you definitely want to try it ! I could eat this stuff every day & can't wait to go back to Salt Spring ! Loved the atmosphere, loved the people, loved the food !More
My partner and i visited several times during our vacation for a ‘quick’ drink and ended up staying for hours on both occasions. The Margaritas are the best i have tasted (they’ve converted me) and the staff were very friendly with a warm community orientated...atmosphere making this Irishman feel right at home - No easy feat. Thank you for our great experience and warm Welcome. Much love, Keith and Emily.More

Wow, thank you so much for the kind words. Exactly what we work so hard for. Loved having you both over and feeding you.
Entered front entrance.” Dine in or to go?” Asked the person behind the counter. “Dine In!” We said. We were directed around the corner to a dining area and the dining area was full of customers ... we were greeted by a server that said..., I’ll clean that table and seat you in just a moment. She went behind the bar and worked on something and 5 min later cane back by to look notice us and looked puzzled as we caught her eye. “Can I help you?” She asked. “Yes, we would like to eat here and we just met you a moment ago.”she grabs menus and wipes down the table . “ from the other room there were other customers that had experienced the same thing and they had left. We looked around the room and another person had been seated but no order taken and the table next to me was also waiting for service. We had decided to leave out the side door and don’t know why 3 frontline staff and 2 in the kitchen couldn’t serve the needs of 3/4 capacity at lunchtime on s Saturday. This place has great reviews and the atmosphere seemed promising. Unfortunately we would never know how good it could be. I would have been happy ordering from the counter and grab a seat where ever a seat would be open and hear a number called to get the order or take a number and wait for the table service. I think our server was having a off day or just very new to food service. If that was so, the other 2 on the front line weren’t helping her. We are fairly local from Maple Bay and am glad that the best tacos aren’t marooned on an island across the Samsun narrows .More

I am so sorry you had a bad experience. That day was busier then we expected for so early in the season and we were understaffed for being nearly full for several hours over lunch and again for dinner.
To bad you were in a...More
