    Spicy bird chicken taco is v.spicy but that's good. Lots of flavors, enjoyable. Black beans are a good side. But queso fundido should come w/chorizo (more chorizo!) & serve horizontal tequila flights!

    Expect at least a 30 min wait this place is always crowded also a tip for the valet and a cell phone so they can let you know your table is ready. But otherwise awesome place to eat. 10$ taco FTW!

    Cant go wrong with the $10 Taco (it cost 4.99 but worth the $10 name). Enjoy a jalapeño margarita or if you like beer, try the imported Nicaraguan Beer... Toña

    "The place to be in Jax beach area" - Jax resident. Had the fish taco, spicy bird and the Asada. The fish taco was definitely the best. Nice ambience and good service.

    The greatest owners. The tastiest fish tacos. The most unbelievable ambiance. The definition of a one-of-kind experience. TacoLu is a culture, not a restaurant. Enjoy, amigos.

    Have an avocado taco for a wonderfully different delicious treat---remember to sprinkle the lemon on your avocado before digging into the tasty taco. Mmm-mmm good!

    Usually super busy, so make sure you have time to wait. But it's a great place to eat! I love the bang bang shrimp quesadilla and the Mexican street corn!

    Somethibg so wrong and so right with the fact that a taco place that only serves breakfast twice a week makes better eggs than a place that specializes in breakfast. Well done Tacolu!

    Come on Saturday and/ or Sunday and try the brunch which is served from 10-2. I personally recommend the Don Patrol. You will NOT be disappointed.

    The veggie tacos are the best I've ever had! They're addicting! Don't be afraid to try something new, you won't be disappointed!

    Big fan - however - I find it inconsistent. For instance the tacos:1 out of 3 ordered the meat will be tough, scallops will be too fishy or the taco will be cold. The cold taco is a regular pattern.

    Cool Baja vibe here with an impressive Anejo list. The Carnitas taco was delicious with a tinge of sweetness. Wahoo taco is good if you like your fish mixed with a sweet mango coulis. Shots shots shot

    Brunch Sat. and Sun. from 10-2. They do half portions of their breakfast menu, too, for about $4.50.

    Very limited parking... and the neighboring shops will tow you if you park on their lots to eat at Taco Lu's. Be mindful of that fact and you'll have a great experience - the food is yum!

    The best 3 taco combo in town: 1 bangin' shrimp, 1 scallop special taco and 1 Mahi (blackened, not fried). And pay the $1 extra for a top shelf marg. No regrets. Read more

    Whatever else you get (and you honestly can't go wrong with anything on the menu) must be paired with some Mexican Street Corn. Best stuff on the planet.

    Ask for the specials. If they have the scallop ones available, they're the best. Pass on the chicken ones; meat is dry and bland.
