What a great idea for Surf City! We’ve eaten and ordered from this restaurant many times this summer. Simple menu with local produce so they’re helping their own economy. Love their tacos and bowls! Can even get Açaí bowls. Right beside Surf City Surf School.

My family and I ate here twice during our vacation to Topsail Island. The tacos are fresh and tasty. Dining is a small patio area and you order at a walk up window. My favorite were the shrimp tacos. They are $3-4/each, but worth it.
