Taco Loco Restaurant Review

: The fish taco revolution started right here in coastal SoCal, and this decades-old stand in Laguna, located just south of downtown, is definitely a landmark. Pick a protein (fresh fish, beef, carnitas, tofu, chicken, blackened mushrooms, lobster, shrimp) and then choose from tacos, salads, quesadillas and nachos. Everything comes with quality guacamole. Some go for the sautéed ahi, beefy burgers, filling fajitas and refreshing ceviches. Taco Loco caters to local vegetarians, so the menu also includes organic coffees, herbal teas, natural juices and vegan desserts. You can also find a few wines by the glass and bottled beers.
