The taco salad with grilled chicken is my favorite. My husband goes for the steak burrito and my daughter gets the Buffalo Soldier. You can't have a bad meal from Surf Taco. The fresh salsa bar is a major draw for this place.

Good food, I've had better, but I've had a lot worse too. The salsa bar is yummy! Beef taco was ok. Will definitely try something else next time. The 7 layer dip was yummy, would order again.

I thought this place was pretty good for fast food tacos. Yummy salsa bar. I really enjoyed my fish taco. Just order, pay and sit down. They bring the food to you. Just get your own salsa.
