Wahoos has the best fish tacos, the best rice, salsa and the chips are great too! The ingredients are soooo fresh. One of my favorites besides the fish tacos is the cheese enchilada with green sauce. This is one of my family's favorite. Have been coming to the original one for over 30 years.

You can go down Bristol Street and spend a fortune at South Coast Plaza to eat in a trendy restaurant, or you can have OUTSTANDING Mexican food for a reasonable price right here.

Favourite place for fast tacos and similar dishes. Fun decorations and very family friendly. Have had tacos and protein bowls and both were delicious.

Wahoo fish in the South Coast Plaza ISS great hidden gem with easy parking. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. The location is elegant in a wing of South Coast Plaza. Easy parking right off Sunflower. Lunches and dinners here are a lot of fun even if you have no shopping to do or are just wandering around... More

Tasty food at a good price. Citrus slaw and perfectly cooked fish makes a great lunch. They deliver to your table quickly and service is great.

This is not a fancy place. Read the menu on the wall, go to the counter and order your food and take the number where your dinner will be brought. Cokes and iced tea are yours to dispense while waiting for your meal. I got the fish tacos with corn tortillas and wahoo and their special cabbage slaw, yum! It... More

Wahoos is always a favorite when visitng Orange County. Fresh, healthy, and a great value. The fish tacos are the best around...I like the blackened ones served with brown rice and black beans. Lots of different things on the menu, including salads, and rice bowls...something for everyone. Service was excellent. You actually order at the register and then the food... More

The fish tacos were excellent and the prices reasonable. Ultra casual atmosphere wasn't anything special, but it was adequate. We all ordered two tacos assuming they would be small (for only $3) and they were actually quite large! Citrus 'sauce' was amazing. Menu was a little complex but we hit the jackpot! I would definitely return!
