Great menu with everything for the family, you can't go wrong with anything you order. Fish tacos are amazing, the appetizers are packed with flavour, and the friendly atmosphere is perfect for this beach community!!

We plan our trips to town around when the Taco Shack will be open. Maybe that's silly, but when you find a place whose food is delicious, reasonably priced, and served in a funky, chill setting- you want to keep going back. Or at least I do! Thrilled to make it back this past weekend. One more visit planned before... More

The best taco salad I've ever had! Atmosphere is laid back and location is different, but very friendly staff, reasonably priced and great food!

While visiting Daytona Beach I Googled best fish tacos. The place was on top. After a 15 mile drive we arrived at the "little" Taco Shack! There was a line 15 people deep. It's where the locals go for great tacos, quesadillas, etc. Great food and extremely cheap! I will go everytime I'm visiting Daytona Beach area!

So disappointed, we live around the corner and have been eating there for years. I always get the gnarly nachos. They used to always be smothered in queso. The last two times the chips have been very dry with no apparent queso. This last time I ordered 3 orders of the nachos, mentioning that I did not have any apparent... More

Stopped for a quick bite, and the line moved quickly...always a line. Fish tacos and steak tacos very tasty. Loved the sauce on the steak tacos. Yellow rice and beans very good also. Decent prices, great presentation, yet quick and simple, all in one. Excellent customer service. We need to try the burritos, taco salad, or Cuban sandwich. Saw all... More
