Surfside Taco is a 24-hour, credit-card-only, hole-in-the-wall that makes tacos, burritos, and quesadillas with a ridiculous number of fillings. The extensive menu can be overwhelming, but if you come by late night, drunk you will be happy to hear there’s a scaled down version from 11pm–11am, where you can only choose from 14 options instead of the usual 22. If you just blew all your money betting on the Wizards, the quesadillas definitely offer the best bang for your now-limited buck.
