This is our second visit. The employees are very friendly and helpful; the food is very good. I ordered a wild caught salmon taco and chips/guacamole. Joey ordered chicken tacos. Sodas rounded out the menu (what a shame they don't have a margarita license ...) but they do have brown rice, kale salads, all kinds of healthy foods! And not... More

I'm no expert on Mexican food, but this was fresh and clean tasting and the service was good. More expensive than the larger chains, but also much better quality. Wet burritos are good. I'd happily return .

This was my first time at a Sharky's. The food was good. Counter service was quick. I had the two California taco plate that came with a side salad. They offer a salsa bar to fix up your meal. The place was clean, including the bathrooms.

I can't describe it but they have the best wet burrito I've ever had!! The staff at our hostel recommended it to us. There is nothing that can compare to Sharky's wet burrito

Unlike most of the tourist-trap restaurants along Hollywood Blvd peddling mediocre food at inflated prices, Sharky's is a small chain with several locations around SoCal with a rep for organic and responsibly-sourced Mexican-ish food. Our party each ordered something different and all were good, with the chicken tacos as standouts. If you're in the area and don't want to break... More

Found this place by accident, lovely food, served quickly, reasonably priced, lady serving was very helpful. Clean and tidy. Lots of local police dining here too, so that says a lot for the food in my opinion

Strange place. Gringo'd mexican food and pizza. (please, choose one) Arrived late for a show at Pantages so we jogged down the street for a quick bite. Fish tacos (grilled) with corn tortillas were okay. Salsa bar was clean with a small variety of choices. Quick and friendly service. Place order and they'll deliver it to your table. Average food...

Visited Sharky's LA, whilst travelling with friends. Didn't expect much as this is a take out place although you can eat in. Great tasting, fresh Mexican food at good prices. Chicken tortilla soup is amazing! Wish we had Sharky's in the UK.

Really not good. I bought the salad this time. It had everything it mentioned in the description, but was about 90% cabbage, which was not mentioned. Thought about complaining, but figured it wasn't worth it. Really there are so many better places to eat, there is no reason to go here.

My favorite is their Nu Mex Caesar Salad - yummy - I usually get a half as a full can be for two people - staff is very accommodating and polite - even if you walk in to take out - wait is minimal as is the pricing for the food. You will have many options for choice of meal... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
