There are some great things to catch at Wahoo's. I like the choices, and the way the tacos are prepared. I also like the friendly staff, who answered specific questions about menu items as if I were the first person to ask, not like I was bothering them. That means a lot to me when I choose a restaurant. Quality... More

I have three daughters; and they all have husband;s and they all have kids; and they ALL come and visit me and want to go out to eat. Now, I'm no Donald Trump, as far as $ goes, so I take the horde to Wahoo's. Not only is it reasonably priced but it's fun, and everyone seems satisfied, even the... More

Great place for a quick bite! Never disappoints. Great for families and friends. Love the beachy local vibe. Only wish there was a Wahoo's on the East Coast!

great value for the money, if you leave hungry you are doing it wrong. I like the blackened fish or chicken tacos with black beans and rice. Very tasty.

Wahoo's is a great, quick restaurant a step above fast food. I really like the Fast Break burrito...try it with the spicy fish for a bit of a kick. My daughter always gets the bean, rice and cheese burrito and it's one of her favorite places. And the nachos are good too! Staff is always very pleasant when we go... More

Visiting friends. We selected this particular site for a meeting at a mutually convenient location. The fare was "good", meaning worth the money, but nothing particularly outstanding. I had the Wahoo salad. Reasonably fresh, I'd not say "crisp". The location wasn't particularly crowded, but I must say, there is virtually no "on site" signage. One is directed to the general...

Pretty good food served quickly in a fun atmosphere. Very generous portions! I tried the Cajun chicken quesadilla which was ok.

Food was okay. Nothing to write home about. I would rather have had something a litle more Mexican. Lacking in flavor. Though the fish on my girlfriends salad was microwaved not fresh cooked.

We visited the San Diego area last weekend. We spent a beautiful, warm, sunny morning on the beach and were starving when we happened by Wahoo's Fish Tacos. We had never been to one before and we are so glad we gave it a try. Great guys running the place, super friendly and helpful and patient...it takes awhile to study... More

I love the black bean and cheese burrito. It is on the kids menu, but it is more than enough to fill me up for lunch. I used to get a quesadilla with fish, but got a bone once, and that grossed me out. They have a great cilantro dressing that you can get to dip your chips into. So... More
