If you're not in the mood for table service this place is fantastic. The only downside is that it is close to a busy street but the vibe and the food more than makes up for that.

Fun joint right on the beach. Outside eating, so can may be hot. There are numerous shade shelters outside and fans. Service was great and the fish tacos were yummy. Tried the jerk wings with pineapple glaze and they were delicious.

This is a great little taco joint. The food was delicious. We ordered tacos, açaí bowl, wings, nachos and salsa plus some beers. We will be back for sure. The quality and atmosphere of Shaka Taco make it worth visiting anytime we’re in town.

Walk up to the window and order, then find a seat outside. Pretty soon someone will bring your order to your table. It is the best sidewalk taco I've ever even. Delicious in every way. I'm going back tomorrow!
