After a visit to the Petersen Museum which is just a few blocks away, we stopped here. We both had their non-spicy fish burritos and we ordered a side of chips with guacamole. The burritos were very good and I would happily eat one again. The guacamole however was very lackluster and not worth the extra spend over just having... More

The salad and the cilantro dressing was pretty decent, maybe a bit too thick to spread on the salad, the guac was clumped into one part of the salad and was hard to mix in flight. The fish was a bit overcooked and dry, a jerky texture of sorts, the pico de gallo gave the fish a bit of moisture... More

Wahoo Taco is an easy walk from the hotel nearby. We wanted a light meal and found this to be a perfect. Our fish tacos (one crispy and one grilled) were very good. We were also able to order a glass of wine with dinner. A fun atmosphere!

This is an unassuming little spot. The prices are great for California and the food is decent. The restaurant is right on Wilshire Blvd 10 minutes from the Santa Monica pier. There is free parking

We went here in Laguna Beach. It was GOOD!!! Cheap and good!!!! But the best part was their black beans. They were so tasty and never had I had such delicious and filling black beans! But anyway I got a fish taco and a chicken enchilada with a green sauce. Both were on point and did not leave me hungry.... More

On a recent visit this chain never fails to disappoint. The spicy fish tacos were very lightly fried and with the soft corn tortillas and citrus slaw simply mouth watering. The kale salad was also excellent with fresh cold crisp greens and just enough citrus vinaigrette. The homemade pico de gallo excellent. Only minor complaint was lunch service too hurried-they...

The fish tacos here are excellent! The citrus slaw adds a lot, the fish is fresh and well cooked without breading. A great lunch spot!

Wahoo's is one of my favorite fast food places in Southern California. There are multiple locations. While it is not authentic Mexican food, it is classic "surf taco"- which is hard to describe. You just know it when you have it. Prices are reasonable, vegetarian choices, casual. You feel like you are eating healthy, but you won't go away hungry.... More

First time and really enjoyed diversity of the menu. From salmon to enchiladas to salads, all were fresh and better than expected from fast food. Wish they were in our part of the country. Will visit again.

I have been here several times throughout the past few years with friends who wanted to try this restaurant for lunch and have never really liked the food. The fish tacos and burritos are just fair and the salsa is lousy. The rice and beans are average. The best thing about this restaurant is the surf shack atmosphere . Free... More
