The atmosphere is fun and colorful. The salsa bar is a nice way to try different heat levels and taste of salsas. My husband usually gets the fish tacos which he really likes. I really like the Aloha wrap as well as the Cali Wrap. Another favorite is the Garlic Shrimp Burrito. My husband and I usually split that.

Honestly, I like just about any kind of food and I eat just about anything. But not here. Just don't care for the meat or any of the items on the menu. The place is real nice.... but I won't eat there ever.

I placed my order on their online app. I think it's great. I ordered the food that we wanted. Send my husband to pick it up and it's ready when he gets there.

My wife and I stopped at surf taco for lunch last week. We opted for table service rather than ordering at the counter. The server was polite, friendly and prompt. The food was delivered in a timely manner and was served at the right temperature. There was only one problem, it just didn't taste good. Perhaps I'm spoiled by authentic... More

They have a really nice bar area separate from the main seating area. Have a nice selection. The food is nice and fresh. There is a salsa bar to pick your salsas for your food. I like the burrito with grilled chicken.

I’ve dined here a few times over the last few years. It is one of those places I want to visit more, as I have always enjoyed their famous surf tacos. The other night I dropped in and decided to try their Surf Burrito, which is basically a burrito version of the Surf Taco. It was tasty, holding its own... More

Fun atmosphere for families with huge tvs usually televising sporting events. Sometimes food is cooked great with little to no wait and other times we have had hard overcooked chicken or undercooked rice. They do have the new coke machine, which is a hit and their margheritas are delicious!!

We used to love surf taco. We would eat there at least once a week. So I am so sad to say that it has gone down hill . The food is less than mediocre , the service is about the same. The bartenders including Doug are the only good things about this place. Too bad, I really miss the... More

This location was definitely better when it first opened a few years ago. it seems like any resturant, they lose sight on the quality and quantity of the product.
