Tiki Taco vs. Lex Mex in LBI

I ate at both of these places twice recently. Lex Mex wins hands down for food. Tiki Taco is cheaper, decent food, but not so good take-out. Eat there. Lex Mex is dependable either way. The fish taco has been reccomended on these boards before, and it WAS muy delicoso!

  1. Okay, you have got to be kidding me. We come to LBI every year. Our first stop is always Tiki Taco in Beach Haven. They only do take out and their food is by far the best Mexican I have ever tasted. We tried Lex Mex a few times. It does not come close to the quality of Tiki Taco, and the people and service at Tiki Taco makes going there a true shore experience that I would recommend to anyone. Bobby and his staff make you laugh and encourage you to taste everything before you buy. Do not go anywhere else for good mexican food on the Jersey Shore. Tiki Taco is our family's favorite shore treasure and we hope you all get a chance to give it a try. There is no comparison between the two. Tiki Taco, owns LBI and the East Coast.

      I ate at the Surf City location so maybe the food is better in BH. I still stand by my review, though. Tiki Taco needs to add a fish taco to the menu.
