“Shaka Taco Delivers Great Food in a Cool Beach Atmosphere”
Review of Shaka Taco

Shaka Taco
Ranked #6 of 67 Restaurants in Surf City
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Shaka taco is a reasonably priced, "not your average taco place." The fish tacos are well cooked, not overly breaded, with a great finish. The nachos were great, but pickled onion is a love it or leave it kinda thing. The deck area to eat was cool, with views of surrounding hotels. The adjacent surf shop adds to the cool factor. Not a huge beer selection, but what they had was interesting, well priced, and good. Kids love this place.

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.
