Taco Surf's official website says in one spot that this location is in Sunset Beach but says in another spot that it is in Surfside. Their Yahoo! Local listing says they are in Huntington Beach while their Citysearch listing says Surfside. So I asked our server which of the three it was and his response was "Surfside." I'll take his word for it.
Our group consisted of me, Dave (the one who told me about Fiesta Grill), Amy (making her first appearance since the Taleo Deluxe Review), Mikey (who's been present for a couple prior reviews), and Rhett, Kathy, Liz, and Paul who had never been along for any of my reviews before.
While I'd been to Taco Surf several times before I had never tried their shrimp tacos that a couple of my friends rave about constantly so I knew it was time to finally try them. Taco Surf's Ensenada Shrimp Tacos come in "Double wrapped corn tortillas topped with melted cheese, grilled shrimp, sautéed veggies, Signature Spicy Baja sauce, fresh cilantro and guacamole." Their menu even says that they are "Poncho's Favorite." I guess Poncho is one of their employees. After trying one of these tacos I have to say that I think they are on a par with the excellent shrimp tacos served by the small Baja Fish Taco chain.
And everyone was jealous of Paul's tasty looking machaca plate, seen above. I know what I'm getting when I go back: the machaca plate with a shrimp taco on the side.
