We found The Taco Shack on our way to Sebastian. It was not far off I95. I loved this quiet, old fashioned town. Lunch was so good, quality ingredients, huge servings. Hearty lunch for $10!

This is my favorite place in NSB. Prices are unbelievably cheap. Just a cool fun place to grab a quick lunch. Love el hector style tacos with blackened fish or shrimp. Authentic!
