Shaka Taco is awesome! The tacos are stuffed with fresh, flavorful fillings (the carne asada was AWESOME, and a welcome break from a week of nothing but seafood), and served on warm, fluffy flour tortillas so good you want to just buy a package of them to eat on their own.

I recommend calling in your order, even if it's just for yourself!
Doing so saves you time (this place gets BUSY!), and gets you that much closer to biting into one of the most delicious tacos you'll ever have by the beach!

Cheers!

Food is delicious and budget friendly. We ate here twice on our week long stay. Vegetarian options available. Had shrimp, carne asada, pork and chicken tacos. All are excellent! Service is great, too. Go early for lunch or dinner because the place gets very busy. Outdoor seating fills up fast. Can’t wait to stop again on our next visit to TI.

So we ate here on our last day, needing a quick bite before hitting the waves one last time. Totally blown away with the quality of ingredients and taste! Fair prices. Great friendly service. My wife and I had the bowls, shrimp and Mahi. Our kids had the chicken tacos and quesadillas...everything tasted fresh and was just so flavorful. All too often flavors (especially in tacos/Mexican) can get muted out..not at all with Shako! You could taste every single freshly sourced ingredient! We will make this a yearly tradition!!

Really surprising, high quality food at the beach. Go figure. The only negative is that there were a ton of flies so eating this in your car is the best option. Went there twice and wonderful both times.
