Agree with the others, the flavors were a bit bland, but the girl who took my order was really nice and explained everything about CC. Most tacos can be on corn tortillas and they pack them pretty full. Salsa is delicious too, but the chips may be risky. Fried in same fryer as gluten. It did not make me sick and I have an allergy, but not worth the risk for everyone.

I don't understand why people are obsessed with this place. It's bland and there's cc.

The food is great! However, I rated 3 stars because in terms of gf they don't think like someone who has an allergy or sensitivity - so you will have to do your homework. For example, they have limited options when it comes to ordering a corn tortilla or rice bowls. You can only get tempura cod or blackened Mahi mahi on some of these options. So, hopefully you're up for some mahi mahi!

Although not. Gf place and cross contamination is likely, it is one of my favorite places to eat at the shore. Food is fresh and delicious and servers are very nice.

Great options, I have yet to have a reaction from Surf taco. All food is delicious and the only main thing that isn't gluten free are the chips or obvious flour tortillas. Anything made with corn tortilla or over lettuce with rice is gluten free.

Every taco, every wrap, every burrito etc is made with a flour wrap or tortilla. There’s no corn tortillas and no gf choices. Just go to a real Mexican restaurant where plenty are naturally gf. Doesn’t mean the place sucks, but if your avoiding gluten or celiac you’re left with almost zero choices. Maybe one choice- plain nachos.

Easy to customize menu items to make them GF, Bonus it’s BYOB and has private event space

I went to the red bank location and told them I was celiac. I got the fajitas and corn tortillas which I was told were safe. Within thirty minutes of getting home I was super sick. Definitely cross contamination or those tortillas were not gluten free. Disappointed as my kids love this place

In July 2018: terrible and risky. Gave us flour shells even after specifying gluten free. Manasquan location not ok.

They have a gluten free menu to help navigate better choices when trying to avoid gluten. I wouldn’t eat here if you were a sensitive celiac. There is no separate fryer, so only soft corn tortillas are a safe option for most. I am non-celiac gluten intolerant. I get very ill from gluten but am not highly sensitive to cc. That being said, I ordered the taquetos because I am ok with a shared fryer. They were good and I had no problems. Ask for the gluten free menu at the counter.

Although they have no dedicated fryer, there are many non-fried delicious options. I've eaten here and never been sick. Just make sure that you ask for no chips... they are fried in the same fryer as gluten a containing items.
