Bud and Alley's Taco Bar is a fun, little, laid back, outside restaurant to go for lunch after spending time on the beach or walking around Seaside. Great burritos, tacos and guacamole and chips. It's pricey, but everything in Seaside is.

We had the chicken salad sandwich and chips for $14.50. The meal was good but pricey for sure. Nice location.

I had a horrible, watered down cocktail, and while I was choking it down, I had a look at some of the food that was being put down at neighboring tables, and nothing looked particularly outstanding. It looks like a place to... More
