I drove past a couple times and was hesitant to go in. Glad a local suggested it or I would have missed a great place. They have different types of tacos. I wanted fish tacos and they were very good. So good, I went back...More

Coming from Texas, the words 'healthy' and 'Mexican food' typically do not go together. What a pleasant surprise to eat a great salad at Wahoo's. Quick serve, but still made to order. The Power Chopper Salad with Spicy Chicken was absolutely delicious AND nutritious...just what...More

Wahoo's is always one of my first stops when I'm in Southern California. This visit didn't disappoint! The citrus slaw tacos are healthy & yummy...they'll even do a lettuce wrap instead of a tortilla. Everything I've ever had here has always been good. One of...More

This place is overrated. Went to Cheka it out. Nothing great. I've had their food at a company party and the food was awful. Wouldn't go back.

Simple, laid back and great food at great price! It was recommended to us by a steward on our flight to California and lived up to everything they said. We sat on the closed porch and totally enjoyed the California weather as we ate.

Wahoo's has great food. You order your food and they have it to your table almost immediately. The service is great. You cannot beat the monthly beer specials.

Whenever I go to Southern California, I expect amazing Mexican food. I actually found this place on another website and seen incredible reviews, so I figured I'd try it. The inside looks like a surf-shack, and it's kind of neat how they decorated it, but...More
