Absolutely fantastic! Casual beach vibe. Food was so fresh and delicious. Fish tacos were so light and flavorful and the Shaka nachos are a must have.

My mom and I both got the veggie tacos, and they were delicious! I'm always a little unsure of tacos, but these were so fresh and good. Will definitely go back next time in Surf City!

We ordered 5 different tacos to go and drank an iPad while we waited. Shrimp was by far the star with carne asada coming in closely behind. They are fresh with delicious ingredients. Atmosphere is jack jackson meets North Carolina which I totally loved. Will...More
