Have stopped in here many times while in the area during the past two years. Service is always friendly and fast. A full range of TexMex food. I usually get the fish tacos, which are great; so, why switch.

The fajitas are very good and filling. The service was excellent and the chips and salsa are great too. If we are in Long Beach again, we will certainly go back.

This is a great place for Mexican food in Seal Beach. Half a block from the ocean and the pier. Food is great at a reasonable price and the ambiance is just what you want in a small restaurant. Try it in Seal Beach

At times the parking can be a challenge (check the signs carefully for curbside parking - some spots are two hours, other are ONE hour - tickets are written at 65 minutes!). Food is good. Scorpion chowder is a delicious fish chowder that's kicked up to be warming and spicy. The daily lunch specials are quickly delivered to your table... More

Ordered the spicy clam chowder and a fish taco. The clam chowder was perfectly flavored like the waiter said it's more like a lobster bisque with clams instead of lobster. However I would have liked more clam in the soup. The fish in the fish taco was crispy and juicy on the inside as it should be. Top this with... More

All of the taco surf locations are good eating but this one is my favorite. It is down the street from the pier in Seal Beach and serves up some tasty tacos. The Monday night football menu is my favorite. Cheap items and some different tacos that they don't have on the regular menu for other days. The ice tea... More

Good prices, location and atmosphere lead us to Taco Surf. Mallorie, our server, was a great hostess and provided some useful local insight. The Scorpion (spicy shrimp) Chowxer was the highlight
