We ate out on the patio on a warm winter day. Lots of things to choose from. The "ten" dollar taco is great and less than ten dollars, just tastes like a more expensive taco. The guacamole is fantastic!

We've eaten at Taco Lu's a number of times, but since they moved to their present location we judge the food taste has declined. It's a very busy place due to the inexpensive menu and the ambience is OK.

We had read about this restaurant on a list of the 15 best places to eat in Florida and when we decided to meet my brother halfway between our two homes, we decided to give TacoLu a try. To start off, the four of us immediately fell in love with the decor of the building both inside and out...lots of... More

Located in an older, locally famous, former southern style restaurant at Jacksonville Beach. Parking is limited but they offer Valet parking. Indoor an outdoor seating available. We were seated quickly. Some tables feel close. Chips were fresh and locally made. Salsa was excellent. We both ordered one fish taco and one bangin' shrimp taco. Shrimp taco had too much batter....

If you're looking for Mexican in Jacksonville this is the place. I love eating Mexican so I've been to many restaurants and this place tops it. Recommend any of the fish tacos!

The crowding is a problem for me. The little rooms inside and drunken groups if a army 20 something's yelling over one another at 6 pm in a Friday sucks much of the enjoyment from my dinner. The $10 taco & the cheeseburger taco are delish. The blackened scallop taco is missing something. The pork one with cocacola marinade is... More

Based on the reviews we drove over an hour and a half to eat at TacoLu. It has a great atmosphere, great food and good prices also free valet parking. I would suggest the banging shrimp tacos.Make sure you get the puff pastry desert, so if you're near the beaches or the St John's Town center take an extra 15... More

We went on a Tuesday for lunch. I did find it to be well price. The service was good. I did chooses a chicken dish that was one of their specials, it was good, the salsa was good. It was crowded but had open tables. It is uniquely decorated.

Sounds strange but that's what is it. Great, exotic tacos and the place is always packed. Get there early for dinner or it'll be hard to park and get in. A nice bar area to wait if you're late...
