Nice, clean taco spot. I've been coming here for years and never been disappointed. Good quality, and no fake food. There is good parking. If it is really busy (mostly June-July) its a risky move. Otherwise 10/10 recommend it.

The family loved the surf taco. Kids loved the soda machine that has 500 different flavors of soda and juice. Taco salad was perfect. Everything seem to cooked fresh. Kids had the kids meal taco and chips. It's better than Taco Bell.. Not sure if it's authentic didn't see any cans or jars of salsa .. Looked fresh made

Good stop for fresh Cali Mex style food. Surf taco serves up good portions of fresh food with tasty sauces. The signature fish taco comes with a large piece of lightly battered fish. Chimichanga is nice and fat, but i wish they could take a little more care to distribute the peppers, onions and cheese throughout. More than one time... More

We headed down the shore on a beautiful afternoon and decided to stop at surf taco. I had the salmon taco special and my husband had the cod taco. Both were delicious. I love the cabbage it adds a nice crunch to a soft taco. The salsa is yummy too. I like the Baja medium salsa.

My 3 year old grandson loves this place and the food. I usually don't choose a Mexican restaurant when going out to eat, but he convinced me to go to Surf Taco. I must say, he chose well. The food was great and the service good. I will be returning with him soon.

We will return here. AT first service was a little slow but then it picked up. Food was good and price was good. Could be a little cleaner but all and all good food.

Everything here is good. The salsa bar is a plus and the customer appreciation tacos are always a big hit

Surf Taco is a local favorite in Manasquan, and my husband and I have been going here for years. It is one of the places we can ride our bikes to for dinner, so it make the rounds. The food is pretty good, and a pretty good value. However, the amount of food you get in a dish can vary... More
