BEST meal in St. Augustine BY FAR! My nephew goes to school here which was the best reason to make a trek over to the beach for some fun. He said...um...do you like Taco's? Cuz if you do I'm 'bout to blow your socks off. Well, I DO LOVE TACO'S KIND SIR! ON his recommendation I ordered the Baja Shrimp... More

Perfect spot for a bite to eat after a day out on the beach or a day out on the boat! Located at the Surf Station. Locally owned and operated.

We cannot visit without going to Nalu's. Food is always amazing. I actually prefer going to Nalu's over Roy's Hawaiian Fusion which is way more expensive. If you only go for the food, you won't be disappointed. However, the last 2 times we were there we noticed a definite change in the customer service. I understand you would rather be... More

After reading primarily excellent reviews for this place, I decided to try it on our way out of town. I had the Tropical Poke and the half order of the Secret Spot fish taco (one taco), Hubs had the 1/2 Pier Left and 1/2 Pier Right (one beef and one fish). Everything was cooked to order, the Ahi was incredibly... More

Nalus is a St Augustine classic. Hawaiian style fish taco truck with other options like sashimi, ahi burger, spinach wrap etc. Great food and great people. Try the coco loco.

This place is awesome! Everything was fresh. We had both types of the ahi poke. The ahi in them tasted amazing, definitely caught that day. We also had a shrimp taco that looked beautiful and tasted amazing.

This is a true food truck with the food being prepared as you order, not pre cooked. Fish was tasty, crisp veggie with it and the beans & rice were also yummy. Colorful tables outside to dine. Food did not take long to get. Outside the entrance of the state park.

In a tourist town like St. Augustine, it's practically impossible to eat well and Nalu's Tropical Takeout is no exception. Calling these traditional Baja tacos/burritos is like calling McDonald's hamburgers. The fish burritos were dry, the iceberg lettuce uninspiring and the the total lack of cilantro, pico de gallo or anything else to add flavor to the pedestrian offerings was... More
