I took my kids to the beach for a few hours this past weekend. We were visiting Bay Head Beach. I knew that there weren't many places around there to eat, so I did a little research before we headed down. I found Surf Taco on the web, and I knew that it was a place for us to try.... More

Nice. A bit sweaty with the heat. Good fresh food, good prices. Worth stopping in. Nice change from the overpriced boardwalk fair.

Best surf tacos anywhere. Have traveled all over the planet and still think surf taco has the best fish tacos around. Lots of flavor... If cod isn't your thing, try the mahi!!

It's not fancy but the fish tacos are literally the best I've ever had! The tempura was perfect. Only $4.95!

People prefer their chicken "cooked" and not frozen. But frozen and stupid is what you get when a surfer who sees dollar signs cares more about expanding than the product he sells. TERRIBLE*

You walk in most of the tables are filled with customers eating great fresh food. Made to order for you plus great Smoothies. They take your order and give you a number for your table so when your order is ready they can bring your food to you. It is a great place to stop and eat.
